Hiro Health Business Overview
Hiro Health is a Durable Medical Equipment (DME) Provider licensed in certain states to dispense durable medical equipment to facilitate the treatment of sleep disordered breathing ("SDB") as directed by a licensed physician. Hiro Health may provide through various means helpful information on sleep apnea, the use of CPAP devices, and other topics within its scope as a DME Provider. The information shared by Hiro Health should never be construed as the practice of medicine. HIRO HEALTH DOES NOT PROVIDE PATIENT EVALUATIONS, DIAGNOSIS, CARE AND/OR TREATMENT. Hiro Health should never be relied upon as a substitute for or resource in place of a licensed medical practitioner.
Hiro Health is here to help customers sleep better and enable them to treat their obstructive sleep apnea. However, since obstructive sleep apnea is a medical condition, there are certain activities that Hiro Health can do and certain activities that Hiro Health cannot do. Here's an overview:
What Hiro Health Does:
- Provides helpful information on sleep health, obstructive sleep apnea, and other forms of sleep disordered breathing
- Under the direction of a client's physician, Hiro Health administers home sleep tests and provides results back to physician for interpretation
- Provides client support through the purchase process of durable medical equipment related to obstructive sleep apnea, including CPAP machines and related supplies, in accordance with physician prescriptions
- Provides support, encouragement, fitting tutorials, and sleep data to clients
What Hiro Health Does Not Do:
- Diagnose clients with sleep apnea
- Write prescriptions for home sleep tests or durable medical equipment
- Interpret results from home sleep tests
- Perform any medical service, emergency or routine, for clients
- Enter into Physician-Patient relationship with clients
Engagement with Houston Sleep and Narcolepsy
While Hiro Health does not engage in the practice of medicine, as a convenience to our clients and in order to provide them access to a comprehensive path of diagnosis and treatment, Hiro Health may facilitate an introduction to a group of licensed physicians with whom clients may establish an independent physician-patient relationship. Hiro Health is not party to these relationships. However, through its websites, Hiro Health may make accessible to its clients contact with Houston Sleep and Narcolepsy, a third-party professional medical corporation. Houston Sleep and Narcolepsy has no affiliation with Hiro Health other than to facilitate specific aspects of the High Road to Sleep Therapy that constitute the “practice of medicine.” Hiro Health has no financial interest in Houston Sleep and Narcolepsy and has no control over operational elements such as pricing decisions, physician selection, or licensing/compliance matters. Hiro Health in no way influences medical directives made by Houston Sleep and Narcolepsy and Houston Sleep and Narcolepsy is in no way compensated financially or otherwise by Hiro Health for any services or medical directives that Houston Sleep and Narcolepsy provides (other than passing on payment for services that come directly from Hiro Health clients). Further, should you chose to engage with an Houston Sleep and Narcolepsy doctor you should understand the following:
- Any relationship between a Hiro Health client and a physician working for Houston Sleep and Narcolepsy is at the discretion of the client.
- Hiro Health is not party to any physician-patient relationship that may be established between its clients and a Houston Sleep and Narcolepsy (or any other) doctor.
- Should you rely on services from a Houston Sleep and Narcolepsy doctor, this in no way obligates you to further engage with Hiro Health or limits your personal healthcare choices.
- The fees paid to Houston Sleep and Narcolepsy are set regardless of diagnosis or directives disallowing for undue influence or conflict of interest.
- Your reliance on the services of Houston Sleep and Narcolepsy is solely at your own risk and you assume full responsibility for all risk associated herewith. Hiro Health does not make any warranties about the training or skill of any Houston Sleep and Narcolepsy healthcare provider (or any other provider).
- As an alternative to Houston Sleep and Narcolepsy, Hiro Health is happy to take direction from a licensed physician with whom our clients have already established a relationship.
