ResMed (NYSE:RMD, ASX:RMD), a global leader in sleep apnea treatment and connected health solutions, and Verily, an Alphabet company, today announced their agreement to form a new joint venture.

As quoted in the press release:

Combining ResMed’s expertise in sleep apnea and Verily’s advanced health data analytics technologies, the U.S.-based joint venture will study the health and financial impacts of undiagnosed and untreated sleep apnea, and develop software solutions that enable healthcare providers to more efficiently identify, diagnose, treat and manage individuals with sleep apnea and other breathing related sleep disorders.

Sleep apnea is a sleep breathing disorder that affects an estimated 54 million Americans (calculated based on a 16-country prevalence data study),1 and is associated with heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes and other life-threatening conditions. Despite the condition’s high prevalence and increasing public awareness, past research has shown that approximately 80 percent of individuals with obstructive sleep apnea are undiagnosed, 2 untreated and therefore unaware of their own risk and of the benefits that therapy could provide.
