CareCentrix, a provider of home health benefits management services to the managed care industry, has acquired Sleep Management Solutions (SMS), a provider in sleep benefits management.
With the acquisition of SMS, CareCentrix expands its services into the fast-growing area of sleep benefits management.
The newly formed company provides Home Sleep Testing (HST) technology to qualifying patients who conduct their prescribed sleep diagnostic test in their homes, enabling a more natural environment for testing at less cost than a facility.
CareCentrix sleep management services senior vice president and SMS chief operating officer Tom Gaffney said the combination of SMS’s end-to-end sleep management system with CareCentrix’s expertise in home benefits management and cost containment will bring additional savings and benefits to our existing and new customers.
SMS provides health plans with a comprehensive program focused on improving patient outcomes and reducing the cost of sleep services.
