The growth of home sleep apnea testing (HSAT) for sleep apnea diagnosis poses unique opportunities and challenges. As more payors require increasing numbers of patients to utilize HSAT instead of in-lab polysomnography (PSG), savvy sleep labs and practices have responded by increasing their overall volume of sleep studies—which allows for financial success and for the personal satisfaction gained in helping more people identify and treat their obstructive sleep apnea.
AAST Past President Laura Linley, CRTT, RST, RPSGT will join Robert Lindsey, MS, RPSGT, Vice President, Clinical Operations, NeuroSom Companies, and Michael Zachek, MD, Director, Physician Center for Sleep Disorders at The Graves Gilbert Clinic, for a webinar on October 26, 2017, hosted and moderated by Sleep Review.
Sleep Review will be offering AAST CECs for the live event.
Attendees will learn:
- Marketing efforts that work to find more high-risk people to test
- Best practices for enabling patients to quickly and efficiently complete their HSAT
- The evolving role of sleep technologists in handling the increased volumes of daytime patient education and adapting to other HSAT-related changes
