Vigillo LLC, provider of a web-based risk management platform for delivery of policies, forms, training, assessments, and management reports to the trucking industry, has formed an alliance with Brighton MA-based Sleep HealthCenters (SHC). Under the agreement, Vigillo and SHC have designed a 14-step process to track and monitor large numbers of mobile workforce employees. Combined use of the Vigillo web-based Software as a Service (SaaS) risk management system and SHC's Sleep Health Wellness Program will streamline identifying, diagnosing, treating, and monitoring compliance of drivers in a sleep apnea prevention program.
Founded in 1997, SHC offers diagnostic and treatment services for sleep disorders through 15 sleep medicine centers in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and New York City as well a national partnership network (SleepPartners) comprised of more than 200 sleep medicine centers.
The program includes educating employees about risk factors and tips on how to avoid drowsy driving. In addition, screening surveys predict which drivers should see a sleep specialist. Treatment for obstructive sleep apnea can include Positive Airway Pressure (PAP) devices, and followup care for drivers.
Vigillo's Scorecard Suite of reports includes a risk score based on factors such as accidents, customer service, rules violations, training, and incidents for individual drivers, groups of drivers, managers, and locations. In conjunction with SHC, drivers who are non-compliant with the use of PAP devices can be easily and quickly identified.
