According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), 28 percent of all truck drivers suffer from mild to severe sleep apnea. Those drivers with severe sleep apnea have a 460 percent greater chance of being involved in a severe accident over a seven-year period. To address this issue, Comdata Corp. has launched a new set of regulatory compliance solutions that focus on the health of truck drivers. Comdata's Sleep Apnea Disease Management and Fatigue Prevention Solutions allow transportation companies to create customized sleep healthcare programs that address their drivers' sleep disorders. The programs can increase driver safety, while decreasing employer liability and healthcare costs.
Comdata's sleep healthcare solutions include companywide screenings, nationwide scheduling, single-night testing, immediate diagnosis, and treatment of sleep disorders as well as driver compliance reporting. These new sleep healthcare solutions are integrated into Comdata's full suite of regulatory compliance solutions, which includes permits, pilot cars, driver log auditing, and fuel tax reporting. Comdata's Sleep Apnea Disease Management and Fatigue Prevention Solutions will be administered by Sleep Access, a leader in providing health and wellness platforms for the transportation industry.
