Did you know that more than 40 million Americans suffer from a sleep disorder with widespread impact on employer costs? Not only is Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) the second most expensive chronic condition in the U.S., but insufficient sleep also has a direct impact on chronic conditions like obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and depression.
Workplace losses, including accidents and OSA-related absences are estimated to cost $35B each year, according to a study conducted by Harvard Medical School. Sleep disorders, however, are treatable and preventable.
