AUCKLAND, New Zealand—Fisher & Paykel Healthcare Corporation Limited announced the launch of a significant update to its F&P myMask App.
The updated F&P myMask App now offers mask selection and sizing in addition to the existing step-by-step education and support video content. Healthcare professionals can easily “Select, Size and Assist” while with a patient, or do so remotely via a simple text invitation to a patient’s smartphone.
Without the need for conventional physical sizing guides, this feature reduces the time and guesswork associated with traditional invasive sizing. It offers consistent selection and sizing standards, regardless of the type of mask. Physicians and clinicians can have confidence in better understanding their patients and accurately selecting the best size for them Fisher & Paykel said.
“This addition to the F&P myMask App demonstrates our commitment to developing innovative technology to support our OSA mask offering,” said Justin Callahan, president, North America & Europe for Fisher & Paykel Healthcare. “The new selection and sizing modules, combined with the step-by-step education and support videos, offer a first-of-its-kind tool for patients and clinicians to help increase confidence and compliance.”
“Our focus on doing what’s best for the patient continues to motivate us,” said Andrew Somervell, vice president, products and technology. “Our aim with this new feature is to improve health care professionals’ efficiency, increase patient engagement and make the patient set-up and support process easier.”
This service is now available via invitation only in the United States and is expected to launch into Canada, Australasia and Europe in the coming months.
