In February, the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) announced a new program, Accreditation of Out of Center Sleep Testing for Adult Patients, to meet the changing needs of our members, sleep disorders centers, and the sleep medicine field. Sleep service entities interested in obtaining accreditation as a provider of out of center sleep testing can download the application. The accompanying Standards for Accreditation of Out of Center Sleep Testing are also available for download.
Sleep disorders centers currently accredited by the AASM should note that they do need to complete the full application to receive accreditation for out of center sleep testing; accredited centers instead must complete an attestation form. Earlier this week AASM-accredited centers were sent the attestation form via e-mail; if you did not receive the form, please contact the Accreditation Department at firstname.lastname@example.org.
