nfosys, India's second largest IT services company, has partnered with NovaSom Inc., a US-based privately held diagnostic service provider for home testing and evaluation of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), to improve the efficiency of administering and analysing results of home tests.

Infosys has designed a cloud-based user portal, Meditrack, on to broaden the reach and efficiency of NovaSom's diagnostic solution suite. The new portal provides physicians with a single, easy-to-use interface that speeds up the order-to-delivery of devices, processing of diagnostic data and management of insurance claims, the company said in a filing to NSE.

Meditrack provides Web interfaces with third-party applications to access and analyze patient data immediately upon wireless receipt of the completed home sleep test. The portal, launched earlier this year, enables NovaSom to shorten the time from test completion to report generation by two days. This capability helps NovaSom's sleep specialist customers deliver faster diagnoses to patients and speed their paths to treatment.

"Patients with OSA are at an increased risk of other chronic diseases. The innovative solution that we developed for NovaSom is helping OSA patients receive faster and better medical care, said Dheeshjith V G, Senior Vice President and Global Head, Life Sciences at Infosys.

"Leveraging our deep medical technology domain knowledge and harnessing the latest technical advancements has allowed us to enable NovaSom to facilitate rapid diagnostic and therapy cycles," he added.

The NovaSom diagnostic solution also leverages AccuSom, the first and only FDA-cleared wireless home sleep testing device. With more than 18 million moderate to severe cases of OSA in the United States, NovaSom's suite of accurate, cost-effective home sleep testing solutions is delivering new benefits to patients, health insurers, and specialty and primary care physicians.

NovaSom's home sleep tests are currently covered for more than 165 million Americans through partnerships with major health insurers. NovaSom also offers service programs that are utilized by payers, employers, primary care and sleep specialist physicians nationwide.
