Medical device company ResMed has acquired US-based sleep and respiratory care diagnostics software provider Somnoware for an undisclosed sum.

The software from Somnoware helps streamline physicians’ processes besides pulmonary and sleep function testing labs to diagnose and assess the respiratory and sleep care test outcomes of a patient.

It enables the scheduling of appointments, ordering of positive airway pressure (PAP) treatment equipment, tracking of PAP compliance and electronically integrating this information into a patient’s electronic health record directly.

ResMed Sleep and Respiratory Care president Lucile Blaise said: “We’re committed to driving wider adoption of Somnoware’s open and interoperable platform to help more people with OSA or COPD get the diagnoses and treatment solutions they need.”

ResMed aims to retain all the staff of Somnoware and integrate its offerings into its brand and solution ecosystem.

The company also intends to maintain the open and device-agnostic nature of Somnoware’s products.
