Sleep Technologist Advice

Get to know Elise, RPSGT

Elise Maher is a Clinical Education Specialist for Persante Healthcare in Massachusetts. 

She has been an ASTEP program director and instructor, and wrote the chapter on Obstructive Sleep Apnea in the Fundamentals of Sleep Technology, Second Edition textbook, as well as a chapter on Artifacts and Troubleshooting in Sleep Medicine Clinics.  Elise serves on the communications workgroup of the National Healthy Sleep Awareness Project, and also participated in the adult sleep duration consensus conference. 

She is also a Director-at Large for the AAST.

Here's what Elise has to say about her talk on: 

"Record Management and Documentation"

Saturday, October 8, 2016        2:15-2:45 p.m.


Elise  will be covering documentation during her presentation at the AAST Fall Course in Cleveland. She will discuss the critical need for proper documentation and the mechanics and clinical reasoning behind chart review. In addition in her discussion she will expand on the use of proper medical terminology and charting using computer functionality, as well as ethical behavior, and patient privacy and rights.

Elise hopes to engage the audience to understand the importance of the role of the technologist as the eyes and ears of the sleep physician. This understanding is important for all technologists, particularly a newer technologist and not necessarily just the night technologist. Regardless of the role of the technologist, such as in a DME company or as a clinical sleep educator, documentation is critical to the continuity of patient care. Today the sleep center is the gateway to primary care, the specialist, the DME provider and without accurate documentation the quality of the patient experience and the appropriateness of patient care really can suffer.

Join Elise in Cleveland to learn how documentation is the key to success in many technologist roles!
