I know that several xPAP makers have their own respective software that allows clinicians to view and analyze detailed data. Some have made their software available to patients, at least for the current generation of machines. We have SleepyHead (an independent, free software), too, but it's only as good as the data that the machines provide and our ability to parse the proprietary data formats. It's also only as good as someone with the appropriate knowledge and access to information is willing to continue working on it for free
Lately some makers have indicated that they wish patients to use much more simplified tracking software which only gives basic information as compliance and leaks. A couple examples are the SleepMapper app from Respironics and SleepSeeker from ResMed.
Do you see this as a continuing trend to keep clinical data in the hands of the doctors and DMEs, or do you feel that the next generation of devices will bring more pathways to patient empowerment and control of our data?
