Introducing OxyCare Advantage: Patient Financing to Increase Cash Sales! It has become apparent that a DME supplier can no longer survive while being dependent on Medicare for fee-for-service. With competitive bidding, stringent documentation requirements, lower reimbursement, post-payment audits, tightening Medicare purse stringsMedicare fee-for-service should only be a component of the suppliers total income stream. There are 78 million baby boomers (people born between 1946 and 1964); they are retiring at a rate of 10,000 per day and are accustomed to paying for things out-of-pocket. The successful DME will be focused on selling upgrades and selling items for cash. To help providers in this changing market, and to allow patients access to the best POC in the market, OxyGo is proud to introduce OxyCare Advantage. OxyCare Advantage is a revolutionary patient financing program for the Home Healthcare Market: Patients can own their equipment with monthly payments, and Providers
The 2017 Spring Medtrade took place at the Las Vegas Mandalay Convention Center February 28 - March 1. While the overall DME attendance seemed smaller than in past years, many exhibitors were extremely pleased at the quality of the attendance and found their booths packed, especially on the opening Tuesday of the Expo. The pavilion featured some of the most innovative HME products that have been on the market for less than one year. Jon Schultz, sales director for OxyGo POCs and Applied Companies, reported very high interest in his companys new OxyGo FIT lightweight POC and other oxygen products. We had two booths for the first time ever and both were extremely well attended. We were very, very pleased. The first day of the show we could have used even more space to field all the inquiries we had, Schultz said. When not on the show floor, attendees were able to benefit from multiple educational conference sessions on audits, business operations, competitive bidding,executive education,

It provides two directional protection against oxygen fires caused by patients smoking, using candles, stove-top ranges or other open flames while receiving oxygen therapy. Such fires are particularly prevalent in situations where oxygen therapy is provided in the home environment where there is limited patient supervision, though it may occur in environments like healthcare facilities and nursing homes too. OxySafe director of sales Jon Schultz noted that some studies have estimated 39% of COPD patients continue to smoke while on oxygen. He said that OxySafes new bi-directional thermal fuse saves time and effort in set-up. It really is a convenience for
NEW STATIONARY CONCENTRATOR ELIMINATES COSTLY OXYGEN DELIVERIES TO HIGH FLOW PATIENTS Westlake, OH. OxyHome, a sister product to OxyGo, a leading supplier of portable oxygen concentrators (POC), has introduced a new stationary oxygen concentrator (SOC), OxyHome 10 by Nuvo. This new concentrator bridges the gap between POCs and large bulky oxygen tanks that take up way too much space and require needless servicing expense, said Kevin Smith, OxyGo and OxyHome Director of Business Development. This SOC makes many of those older, bulkier tanks look like oxygen dinosaurs, Smith added. Smith cites four key advantages of the new OxyHome stationary concentrator: It provides DMEs with big savings by eliminating costly gas or liquid oxygen deliveries to high flow patients. 10 lpm/20 psi oxygen delivery enables use of standard accessories and long tubing runs with no restriction of flow. OxyHome delivers 20 psi at 10 liters per minutewhich can allow patients to attach accessories down line

PRESS RELEASE For Immediate Release, Competitive Bidding, Round #2 Re-compete FROM Dave Marquard, CEO Owner March 21, 2016 On Tuesday evening, March 15, 2016, CMS announced another round of oxygen reimbursement cuts as high as 16% to be effective in the next few months. You can reduce or save 38% of your oxygen costs with every new patient, patients that are distant or use a lot of tanks or even all your oxygen patients. This action will more than offset the cuts and improve your profitability, by adopting the OxyGo Non-Delivery Business Model and we can help. First, equipment costs are only a small fraction of the cost drivers for serving oxygen patients. The majority of tangible costs or expenses of serving oxygen patients are operations costs like labor, delivery, and compliance expenses. Lets examine how to reduce or eliminate these expenses by replacing tanks with a portable oxygen concentrator (POC) and a stationary oxygen concentrator (SOC). Click here to find out
Oxygen safety should never be taken for granted. If you are in the business of delivering oxygen to patients, it is a good idea to frequently review what you are actually doing on a day to day basis compared to what is written in your procedures manual. Simple omissions and mistakes made in the rush of business can have catastrophic consequences. During my career I lost two patients (separate incidents) because they both were smoking cigarettes while on oxygen. The first patient actually was in his living room with his wife and visitors. He was a retired plumber and was very familiar with oxygen and its properties. He chose to smoke with his nasal cannula in place, something that he had done many times previously. But luck only lasts so long. The witnesses stated all they could remember was seeing flames coming from his mouth and nose. (Those of you who have had the required oxygen training may say, But Bob, oxygen isnt flammable!, which is true. However, in an oxygen enriched environment,

A Servomex is a paramagnetic oxygen analyzer. It is used to tell you what your gas identity is and the strength/purity of that gas. A Servomexs accuracy is 0.1% Oxygen and has been validated by ORSAT apparatus to USFDA Pharmacopoeia 23. Oxygen is magnetic! Oxygen is attracted to a strong magnetic field most other gases are not. This para-magnetism is used to obtain fast, accurate measurements. If your oxygen analyzer reading is 99.5%, then your oxygen is between 99.4% and 99.6% pure. Why cant I use my handheld analyzer when testing the identity and purity of my gas? A handheld analyzer uses fuel cell sensors which are much less accurate 3.0%. This means that your 99.5% oxygen could be anywhere from 96.5% and 100% pure (possibly not Oxygen USP)! Therefore, the FDA has specified using a paramagnetic analyzer, such as a Servomex.
FACT: It is the responsibility of the company that fills, stores, delivers, handles and uses oxygen to ensure that the label complies with applicable governmental regulations. FACT: Non compliant labels can result in fines up to $15,000! Check your labels carefully because every violation counts! (i.e. 50 cylinders with incorrect labels is 50 violations!) The Good News Applied Can Help! Applied oxygen drug product labels are customized for you! Your company information is printed directly on the label, keeping you compliant!

Drivers, respiratory therapists, warehouse personnel, and others who handle compressed gas cylinders should do so using the proper equipment to ensure safe movement of the cylinders. Compressed gas cylinders are pressure vessels that are capable of becoming propelled objects if the contents are suddenly exhausted, either by mishap or accident. The rapid discharge of gas can happen if the cylinders are dropped and either the valve or other part of the cylinder becomes damaged or broken. If a damaged cylinder with gas inside of it becomes a propelled object, it can cause property damage, injury, or worse. To prevent cylinders from being damaged, use carriers, bags, or carts when handling and moving cylinders, particularly multiple cylinders. Do not try to carry a large number of cylinders under your arms. One wrong move or trip can result in the cylinders being dropped and potentially damaged. Carriers can be constructed of several types of materials. The durability of the carrier is
