The new online software system is called SleepSeeker.
Last year, some of us encouraged Gil Ben-Dov (ResMed Vice President and member on our old Apnea Board forum) to come up with a solid, easy-to-use reporting software freely available for patients. I also complained to Gil that increasingly ResMed (and other CPAP manufacturers) seem to be viewing DMEs as their "customers", rather than the end-users (we patients). I told him that was a major marketing mistake. We use these products and we are really ResMed's customers - not the DME suppliers, who are simply middlemen. Apparently, he took those patient requests back to ResMed and this online software (and associated website) is the end-result.
I'm hoping this online software is not just for simple "compliance reports" with little analytical use (charts, graphs, reports) for adjusting pressures and optimizing treatment. I do have my doubts.
According to ResMed, using SleepSeeker, you can upload the data from your SD card and the online software will "help ensure you receive proper treatment throughout the night". I don't have time to try this out this week, but I thought many of you with S9 ResMed machines (with SD cards) could give it a whirl and report back here.
I'm not sure if this online software is anywhere near what ResScan will do or not. (I suspect not, but I'm not sure).
Here's the link to SleepSeeker:
You'll have to register with them to try it out.
If you do try it, let us know what this fancy new system is all about in this thread!
