Watermark Medical Signs Contract With Coventry Health Care

Watermark Medical, Inc., a privately held helthcare information technology company, announced that it has signed a contract with Coventry Health Care to provide home sleep testing service for the diagnosis of obstructive sleep apnea or OSA.

The company said the agreement expands Coventry's ability to deliver diagnostic testing to its members in a home-based environment while potentially reducing long-term costs.

Under the new multiyear agreement, Watermark will work directly with Coventry's physician network to diagnose members in the comfort and convenience of their own home at a fraction of the cost of a traditional in-lab sleep study.

Watermark stated that it will deliver these services through its Mail-to-Patient division, which supports physicians who do not currently provide home sleep diagnostics for their patients. Physicians in Coventry's network can refer patients with symptoms of OSA to Watermark, and the company will ship their diagnostic test directly to the patient.
