All aboard for the Medtrade Spring 2018 show! It comes to the Las Vegas Mandalay Bay Convention Center March 27-29. Its hte second largest trade show in the U.S. focused exclusively on the home medical equipment market. Emerald Expositions, the shows owner, touts Medtrade Spring 2018 as designed to give todays providers the highest quality educational, networking, and advocacy opportunities -- and the largest selection of HME products under one roof. While considerably smaller than the fall Medtrade show held in Atlanta every year, the spring event is noted for attracting a home healthcare crowd hungry for new products, especially in the retail sector. One provider I talked to says he always tries to come back home from the Las Vegas show with at least three new retail products to help him keep ahead of his competition. While booth sales have reportedly remained brisk for Medtrade 2018, there is one class of exhibitors that has not been asked back. York Schwab, Account Executive for
For Cathy Work, a happy-go-lucky grandmother and resident of Sandusky, Ohio, life changed for the better when she found out about OxyGo POCs. A small OxyGo POC gave her back a sense of independence and the opportunity to once again live a happy and meaningful life. When health issues related to scarred lungs forced Cathy to be put on continuous flow oxygen in her home, her life changed. Used to coming and going as she pleased, the restrictions of being tethered to oxygen tanks 24/7 sent her spiraling into a hurtful depression. It tested her will power and those of the loving family around her. We interviewed Cathy and her daughter Angela about their experience.

Jason Flanigan, Applied Home HealthCares national accounts manager, has seen the future and it is loaded with high profit potential for DMEs and HMEs that ride the wave of change taking place in oxygen delivery methods. The way to survive the future with oxygen is to get as many of your patients off cylinder delivery as you can, says Jason. The market is changing in favor of POCs because POCs are what patients want and POCs such as OxyGo make so much more economic sense in todays competitive and regulatory environment. Looking at it from voice of the doctor and the patient, Jason points out that availability and quality is the key. Medicare reimbursement numbers show a clear growing trend toward the use of POCs. Doctors want to know that the DME they recommend can take care of their oxygen recommendations and carry the POC products their patients need and the brands they request. Patients are demanding high quality products because they are seeing their co-pays rise and DMEs are making
Are air travel logistics with your POC a source of anxiety? OxyGo and OxyGo FIT are FAA-Compliant portable oxygen solutions! On August 23, 2016, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) made a rule change that streamlined the process of approving portable oxygen concentrators (POCs). Rather than continuing to approve POCs on a case-by-case basis, the FAA has established acceptance criteria for POCs used on aircraft. Each compliant POC needs to have a label from the manufacturer identifying it as adhering to this critera. Were happy to announce that our OxyGo and OxyGo Fit is FAA-compliant, and bears the necessary labeling on the back of the device. OxyGo FIT keeps goingand helps you soar to new heights!

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.
