Partnership Delivers Innovative Solutions to Fatigue by Addressing Sleep Health Management for Drivers.
FusionHealth, the leading provider of sleep health management solutions that improve employee health and wellness by preventing chronic diseases and reducing costs directly linked to sleep disorders, today announced a strategic partnership with the Transportation Safety Exchange to help address occupational risks associated with sleep disorders. This new partnership will strengthen the Transportation Safety Exchange (TSX) mission to reduce highway accidents and save lives, while simultaneously reducing costs related to motor carrier accidents.
FusionHealth’s pioneering technology enables companies to address the most important and overlooked human factor associated with fatigue – sleep health management. By identifying, treating, and managing sleep disorders, FusionHealth improves employee health and performance, and companies realize significantly lower accident rates and reduced healthcare costs.
In a recent National Sleep Foundation poll, transportation workers reported that sleep problems frequently impact daily activities and work-related functions. Train operators, truck drivers, pilots and public transportation specialists, such as bus drivers, taxi drivers, and limousine drivers, all confirm that sleep issues regularly impact their job performance.
In association with TSX’s safety monitoring and rating systems for carriers and drivers, FusionHealth provides a new solution for companies to manage the root cause of sleep and fatigue related risks in ground transportation. By integrating sleep health management technology into wellness, safety and healthcare programs, the benefits of healthy sleep for drivers and companies will revolutionize the transportation industry. “Utilizing the latest advances in healthcare technology, we can now assess large populations for sleep health risks that impair mental and physical performance, and bring scalable, personalized solutions to individuals in need across the U.S.”, states FusionHealth Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Jeffrey Durmer. “The era of tele-health and home-based medical management is just starting, but for mobile and/or remote populations it is not just an effective alternative, it is an essential strategy for identifying, treating and managing medical problems that require daily routines and adherence to therapies”.
