The American Academy of Sleep Medicine congratulates Sleep HealthCenters National Service Group in Bedford, Mass., which recently became the first sleep program to earn out of center sleep testing (OCST) accreditation from the AASM.  In December 2010, Somnicare in Overland Park, Kan., became the first supplier to earn AASM accreditation as a non-Medicare DME supplier. In 2011, this distinction also has been earned by the Minnesota Lung Center clinics and by Georgetown Durable Medical Equipment, LP in Georgetown, Texas.

The AASM established these voluntary programs, along with its accreditation program for sleep disorders centers, to ensure that patients with sleep disorders receive the highest quality of medical care. Learn more about the AASM’s accreditation programs on the AASM website.
