Independent Sleep Practices that have been operational less than 6 months, or not yet have opened, must complete a new accreditation application. Upon approval from the AASM Accreditation Committee, accreditation will be granted requiring a site visit to be completed within 12 months from the date of approval.
Six (6) months from the date of approval, the facility will be required to access their application and enter the previous 6 months patient volume and study statistics data, as well as one full quarter quality assurance report. Following the review of this information, the program will be contacted to schedule their site visit. The site visit must occur within 12 months from the date of approval.
