Sleep Facility Accreditation

Why Become Accredited?

The American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) accreditation reflects a commitment to ensure that sleep disorders patients receive the highest quality of care and serves as an indicator to patients, referring physicians, other providers and insurers that the facility meets optimum quality of care demanded by AASM Accreditation.

AASM accreditation is a voluntary process for the assessment of sleep programs. By achieving accreditation, a sleep disorders facility demonstrates a commitment to the provision of quality diagnostic services and/or long-term management of sleep patients.

In a growing number of states, accreditation is required for reimbursement of many sleep medicine services as insurers recognize that accreditation leads to improvements in patient care.

Sleep Facility Accreditation

Sleep facility accreditation is offered to comprehensive sleep centers that have a clinic, where patient evaluation and management occurs, and a laboratory, where diagnostic testing is administered through in-center sleep testing and home sleep apnea testing (HSAT).
