Our goal is to make it easy for patients to benefit from overnight pulse oximetry.

To submit a claim for home oxygen therapy items and equipment, the supplier must have the support of a qualifying oximetry test results. Specifically, CMS requires the treating physician or a qualified provider or supplier of laboratory services to have conducted the qualifying blood gas study for it to be valid. Vitalistics provides qualified laboratory services. CMS allows patients to self-administer their overnight pulse oximetry test. While the DME is allowed to be the courier of the oximetry device, they are in no way able to provide any instruction to the patient or process the result data.
Overnight oximetry testing may only be conducted after a written physician’s order and patient consent has been received by Vitalistics. Once the test is completed, the DME provider simply connects the oximeter to their computer and uploads the test data to Vitalistics’ HIPPA compliant servers for processing. Our web portal will contain a detailed report that is transmitted to the patient’s treating physician, who may then order home oxygen, if indicated.
A copy of the oxygen report is made available to the DME after Vitalistics receives confirmation that the physician has received the report.
