And possibly pay for the service?

From some of the board posts it sounded like they charge DMEs and doctors for AirView, but I'm not sure.

Oh yes! It's all about the money. It's not free.

When I asked my Physician (Sleep Specialist/Neurologist) about getting AirView results from his office, he told me that alothough they are a relatively large sleep disorder clinic, he does not subscribe to the AirView software, stating that it is prohibitively expensive for his practice, and it's a high monthly fee to use.  

I have been searching off and on for about a year now, and there does not seem to be any alternative to using this proprietary software, or finding either the original or a hack online. I certainly sounds like a self-defeating strategy for Resmed, especially for the medical community----and a shame for consumers, who would like very much to follow trends in their sleep-monitored data.  


At least there's a 60-90 day portion of their data available on the Airmini mobile app, but older periods are not displayed as they would be with the AirView program.

I bought my machine online from a US supplier because Resmed (which was originally an Australian company) now insist on ripping off Australian customers (if you buy the same machine here it will cost you roughly twice as much as you will pay in the US).

I priced out the total landed-cost AUD of buying an AirMini from the US, and found I could buy the same AirMini kit locally (form a national supplier) for about the same AUD cost from a local supplier during their periodic seasonal sales.

RE: Resmed Airmini software
I am not a lawyer in real or fictional life, but it seems to me that the U.S. Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) provisions for patient access to Personal Health Information (PHI) would apply, at least in the U.S., to any data processed or maintained by ResMed on a sleep patient.

For more than you want to know about "Individuals’ Right under HIPAA to Access their Health Information 45 CFR § 164.524", Google the phrase in quotations and it should be the top link returned.

HIPAA applies to "covered entities" like doctors, hospitals, clinics, pharmacies, and insurance plans, and it also covers something called health care clearinghouses. To determine what is a covered entity, Google the phrase "covered entity guidance tool" and a pdf from the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services should appear as the top link.

To be considered a health care clearinghouse, and therefore a HIPAA covered entity, the answer to the following two questions about a business or agency must be "yes":

1. "Does the business or agency process, or facilitate the processing of, health information from nonstandard format or content into standard format or content or from standard format or content into nonstandard format or content?"

2. "Does the business or agency perform this function for another legal entity."

It seems to me that this is exactly what ResMed does. It takes the data from our CPAP machines and processes it into a format made available to our health care practitioners and insurance companies. This should make them a HIPAA covered entity and require them to provide patients with access to their own data in readable form for free or for a reasonable charge. If you read further in the HIPAA rules, it is difficult to charge for electronic access to PHI.

Furthermore, on page 19 of ResMed's 2018 SEC Form 10K, they state the following:

"In  some  of  our  operations,  such  as  those  involving  our  cloud-based  software  digital  health  applications, we  are  a  business associate under HIPAA and therefore required to comply with the HIPAA Security Rule, Breach Notification Rule and certain provisions of the HIPAA Privacy Rule, and are subject to significant civil and criminal penalties for failure to do so."

The HHS requirements for business associate contracts with covered entities (such as your sleep doctor or health insurance plan) include the following mandatory provision.

"(5) require the business associate to disclose protected health information as specified in its contract to satisfy a covered entity’s obligation with respect to individuals' requests for copies of their protected health information . . ."

The above information can be found by Googling "Business Associate Contracts SAMPLE BUSINESS ASSOCIATE AGREEMENT PROVISIONS". Look for the link on hhs_dot_gov.

Has anyone asked ResMed for access to their AirMini data, citing HIPAA?

RE: Resmed Airmini software
You get access to the airmini data through myair in my mind that would meet the requirements ? What more information are you expecting ?

I tried myAir, signed up for an account, entered my information and my machine information, checked the serial number and the machine number twice, and received this error message:

The machine that you entered is not supported by this version of myAir.

What machine did you try to register? I will assume you have an AirMini, since this is what the thread title is about. I don’t believe there is any way to extract data from the AirMini.

There is a separate Airmini app that is just like MyAir, but controls your airmen too.

I thought I read somewhere about an App.  It’s probably similar to Respironics DreamMapper, just a basic summary of data.

It is very basic, just like the MyAir app.  The reason I mentioned it was because bucking appeared to be using the incorrect app for the Airmini to be even able to get that basic info.
