ResMed (NYSE: RMD), the global leader in medical devices and digital connected care for the diagnosis, treatment and management of sleep apnea, teamed up with the nationally syndicated Dr. Oz Show on a campaign to foster better public understanding of sleep health. The campaign includes a national sleep study, launched on October 20, 2016, to determine America's Sleep Score. More than one million nights of anonymous sleep data will be gathered, to assess the nation's sleep fitness, while determining a national score.
"Sleep is the single most under-appreciated problem affecting our overall health and remains a top queried area for help on search engines," said Dr. Mehmet Oz, host, The Dr. Oz Show. "We're excited to work with ResMed over the next several months to assess the sleep habits of our country, and will announce the results live at the Digital Health Summit at CES, the launch pad for innovation and technology that has changed the world. Understanding public health patterns lets us build new pathways to wellness and we can really move the needle with sleep insights and advice."
