Sleep Coaches – Allegiance Group Partnership


Allegiance Group and Sleep Coaches, creator of a proprietary CPAP compliance and resupply outreach platform, announce their new business partnership.

“As a former HME owner, I know the challenges of needing to find ways to increase revenue.  This is why we started Sleep Coaches,” said Mark Boardman, President of Sleep Coaches. “Our team at Sleep Coaches is continually helping our HME clients maximize patient revenue by optimizing their patient’s CPAP compliance and resupply programs.”

“Developing strategic relationships with other businesses that also aim to help maximize revenue potential is important to serving the HME client community,” Boardman added. “Thus, Sleep Coaches is excited to be aligning and working with Allegiance Group.”

“Allegiance Group helps HMEs operate more efficiently and recover more of their patient pay dollars faster. Our goal is to turn every patient into a paying patient. By providing Sleep Coaches’ clients access to the COLLECTPlus payment portal they will be able to process payments automatically. This collaboration allows our providers to increase revenue potential as well as capture patient pay dollars more efficiently and cost effectively,” said Bruce Gehring, SVP, Business Development Manager for Allegiance Group. “As a result of this partnership, patients will stay in their sleep therapy longer. As a result, providers start producing more resupply orders and reducing the turnaround time for payments from patients.”

COLLECTPlus Advisory Board Meeting for HDMS Users a great success!


We were pleased to host the COLLECTPlus Advisory Board meeting for the mutual clients of our partner Allegiance Group (AG) in December, 2018.

The AG team created an environment of open and honest feedback that made for some amazing troubleshooting and enhancement ideas. Seasoned users from Hart Medical, Carelinc and Sobaks Home Medical took the time to step through questions at each level of the collections process.   In addition, clients like SuperCare, connecting from the west coast, offered up powerful integration design ideas.

Of the 52 meetings I attended in December, this was by far the most collaborative and actionable! Be sure to attend the next one at the 2019 Users Conference in September!
