No Play, No Pay in France

Remote monitoring for CPAP compliance is alive and well in France, and if usage falls below certain levels, patients could be rated as “non compliant” and costs may no longer be reimbursed.

An recent article reports that people in France treated for sleep apnea have been subjected to remote monitoring where medical data is being recorded, transmitted (generally via the internet), and interpreted elsewhere—possibly leading to decisions on subsequent treatment. Patients’ associations have complained but reporter Dr. Nicoloas Postel-Vinay at the Georges Pompidou Hospital in Paris says their objections have so far gone unheeded.
