Onera Health partners with US-based MedBridge Healthcare to deliver the first self-applied, no-wire polysomnography (PSG) solution for people struggling with sleep disorders.
Eindhoven/MedBridge HQ – April 3, 2023 — Onera Health, a leader in transforming sleep medicine and remote monitoring, today announced an exclusive strategic partnership with MedBridge Healthcare, a leading provider of sleep management services including sleep screening, in-center, inpatient and home diagnostic testing and therapy coordination.
This new partnership aims to broaden access to Onera’s medical-grade PSG-as-a-Service solution, further improving the patient experience and lowering the operational burden currently faced in many sleep clinics across the US.
“Onera Health and MedBridge Healthcare share the same values, so this partnership was an easy decision for us both. We’re working towards the same goal of improving the quality of life for people that suffer from sleep-related diseases through comprehensive testing,” says Ruben de Francisco, Founder and CEO of Onera. “I’m convinced our patient-centric Type 2 Polysomnography solution is the perfect addition to their already highly successful mail-to-home services.”
MedBridge operates a network of sleep disorder programs across the US, performing over 70,000 sleep procedures annually.
John Mathias, Chief Development Officer of MedBridge said, “As a leading sleep management service provider in the US, we are excited about the potential of Onera’s technology and its contribution to our end-to-end solution. We are pleased to extend our service through this partnership with at-home polysomnography systems that a patient can apply themselves within minutes. We firmly believe this will significantly improve the cost and access for testing, diagnosis, therapeutic coordination, and long-term care management of patients with sleep disorders.”
Onera and MedBridge plan to onboard the first customer for the innovative home polysomnography service in the first half of the year.
