"Transportation and Other Safety-Sensitive Industries," Medtrade Conference
On October 28, 2015, Daniel B. Brown will be speaking at the Medtrade Conference on the topic, "Transportation and Other Safety-Sensitive Industries" from 10:30 AM-11:30 AM. Recent high-profile truck, train and airplane accidents attributable to sleep disorders have increased interest in treating impaired performance due to obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and other sleep disorders. This increased awareness is opening doors for innovative DME suppliers. This program will discuss how the DME supplier can enter into arrangements with sleep test companies, transportation and other safety-sensitive employers to facilitate OSA testing and sleep therapy. Additionally, this program will discuss federal and state regulations that govern such arrangements. In so doing, the program will talk about legal pitfalls to avoid.
