Provider FAQ
What does Ognomy offer sleep providers?
We are offering sleep medicine providers the opportunity to add a turnkey virtual practice (telemedicine, customer service, turnkey home sleep test logistics, built in automation, integrated payments) to their existing practice and take their practice online, or start their own virtual practice for sleep apnea care. Providers can focus exclusively on patient care rather than administration.
How does Ognomy work for providers?
Ognomy provides a HIPAA-compliant, web-based, comprehensive telemedicine platform focused on sleep medicine. The providers we partner with can provide sleep telemedicine services to patients while Ognomy handles the administrative aspects of running a virtual practice. It is the only end-to end service, with built in automation, where doctors can evaluate, diagnose and treat patients for sleep apnea, all from the comfort of their own homes.
How do doctors get paid through Ognomy?
Our model offers patients the option to pay through insurance or via self-pay. Providers can leverage their billing team, or use one of our trusted 3rd party billing companies, for reimbursement. The provider retains all of the professional fees that are charged for the provider’s professional services. In return for providing the infrastructure for you to host your telemedicine services and connecting you to our pan-state and pan-American network of patients, managing all logistics of the practice, providing sleep tests and managing all logistics of DME, Ognomy charges small fees for each transaction.
Does Ognomy get a percentage of the fee?
Ognomy charges small fees for each transaction, not a percentage of your revenue.
What additional software will I need? Will I need an EMR?
No, you won’t need to invest in any additional software. Everything you need to do to run a virtual practice is available within the HIPAA compliant Ognomy platform.
What are the benefits of using Ognomy over other telemedicine platforms?
No upfront capital investment needed – Our workflow automations enable you to run a viable virtual practice – Easily attract new patients through digital channels – Improve your practice efficiency and lower overheads while focusing on patient care instead of adminstrative tasks – Unlock a flexible schedule and improved access to care. Work when, and from where, you want to work – We handle customer service on your behalf – No outside software or EMR required. Everything you need to run a virtual practice is available within the Ognomy platform.
How do I integrate my practice with Ognomy?

We make it easy. Our customer success team will schedule an initial consultation call with you and create a plan to adapt to your practice’s needs. We believe simplicity is the best approach.

How do I set up a new practice with Ognomy?

It’s as easy as Counting Sheepa. Fill out this form and someone on our team will reach out to you in 1-2 business days.

What if I am only board-eligible and not board-certified?

Depending on the state you’re in, we may be able to have you work under the guidance of a board-certified physician until you become fully board-certified.

What do you look for in providers?

We ask that you are board-certified or board-eligible in sleep medicine. Providers must have an active and unrestricted DEA. Our providers are also trusted professionals who uphold the highest standards of HIPAA-compliant care and discretion for our patients.

Do I have to re-register if I have practices at multiple locations?

No, Ognomy is cloud-based and will allow your information to be available for any state in which you are licensed, further improving efficiency for your practice logistics.

Do I need to own specific IT hardware before I can connect to the platform?

You will need a computer or a laptop in order to use Ognomy. Your workstation must meet all system requirements, which are the same as you would need for zoom, or another video-conferencing software. If you have questions regarding the minimum requirements, please contact our IT team here.

Do I need to get credentialed with insurers?

We recommend you get credentialed with at least the 5 most popular insurers in the state you are operating in. Our team can walk you through that.

What if I don’t have time to learn complicated software? I just want to focus on patient care

Our software was designed by sleep medicine physicians for sleep medicine physicians. It’s simple to learn and use. Our workflows automate most of the manual activities so that you can spend the majority of time making a difference in the world by focusing on patient care.

I still have questions. What assistance can you provide?

No problem. Our team can walk you through the entire process from set up, to how to get credentialed, to seeing your first patient on Ognomy.
