Recently, CMS announced another round of oxygen reimbursement cuts. To combat this new decrease you need to not only reduce your costs, but win more patient referrals and gain cash sales. OxyGo’s Smart Delivery Strategy does both, enabling your business to go from just surviving — to thriving.
OxyGo’s unique Smart Delivery model has two unique components:
First, the OxyGo Family of Portable Oxygen Concentrators reduces your oxygen costs by up to 38% by limiting deliveries. OxyGo POCs are reliable and easy for patients to use, so you can give them quality service without the large quantities of delivery.
Second, OxyGo is the most demanded POC by patients — which equates to an increase in business for you. The user changeable batteries, extra batteries, small size and sleek appearance are features that patients and referral sources look for... and with the aging baby boomer population, OxyGo has the features that patients will pay cash for.
Equipment costs are only a small fraction of the cost drivers for serving oxygen patients. The majority of tangible costs or expenses of serving oxygen patients are operations costs like labor, delivery and compliance expenses.
Let’s examine how to reduce or eliminate these expenses by replacing tanks with a member of the OxyGo Portable Oxygen Concentrator Family. OxyGo eliminates the delivery, acquisition, maintenance and hazards of a high pressure oxygen cylinder or liquid vessel. The delivery of a POC to a patient can be accomplished in a simple passenger car or van. There are no haz-mat risks, training, placarding or special delivery vehicles needed. Delivery and compliance costs normally exceed $50 per delivery, making even one delivery per month of tanks to the patient difficult for providers to make a profit.
OxyGo patients never run out of oxygen. Even ultra-high pressure home fill systems provide a cylinder with a finite amount of oxygen at high electricity costs. OxyGo patients never run out of oxygen because the patient can use and charge their OxyGo at home, in their car, and anywhere there is a 100 to 240 VAC outlet or 12 VDC outlet in a car.
OxyGo’s family of POCs are what patients want. OxyGo is a 5-setting, sub-5 lbs. unit that is quiet and discrete, and the new OxyGo FIT 3-setting, sub-3 lbs. unit is a retail super star. Not only are OxyGo POCs are demanded by patients — OxyGo Sales Support helps you find those patients. OxyGo provides you with unparalleled marketing support: web videos, customized TV commercials, print advertisements, radio commercials… and more. Our OxyGo experts provide in-services and sales training for you, too!
"When I found out that I needed oxygen, I thought many activities were lost to me. OxyGo has restored my confidence in getting where I want to be, and my enjoyment in doing what I love."
"The tanks I used before OxyGo were bulky and very restrictive. I used tanks for almost a year before finding out about OxyGo. The tanks were a lot of work and I often found them exhausting to use and set up … OxyGo gave me my life back. Now I want to go places. I can take OxyGo to the pool, beach, grocery store, shopping. I am often gone 8-10 hours a day."
"OxyGo has given my mom her life back and mine too. Freedom to be the type of person she was before. The extra double battery is even more amazing. Before OxyGo she could not go to Columbus, two hours away to see my sister. Now she can see her grandkids—It’s a product that has definitely made her life a lot happier."
"I have patients coming in to switch out for the OxyGo POC because of its battery life. And they love and feel safer with the OxyGo POC because it shows exactly how much time is left to the minute rather than showing remaining time in percentages, which is what units competitive to OxyGo POCs do. Expressing remaining oxygen supply in exact minutes left is a big comfort advantage OxyGo has with patients."
"My life with OxyGo is really 103% better than it ever was with a medical oxygen tank!"
