Dialogue with a Doctor

Quality Measures Webinars

The American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM), in collaboration with the American Thoracic Society, presents a 7-part live webinar series on the implementation of quality measures. Register today to hear recognized leaders discuss the benefits, challenges and practical applications for developing a quality measures program.

Each webinar will include a Q&A session with the presenter, where physicians can discuss methods for improving and documenting quality care for patients with sleep disorders.

The 2016 AASM accreditation standards require sleep centers to demonstrate quality measures for patient care. Additionally, reimbursement policies are increasingly dependent on the demonstration of improvement in quality of care. Register today to learn about practical tools to help you measure and document the quality of care you provide to patients with sleep disorders.

There is no fee for the live webinars; however, advanced registration is required. CME credit is available for the live webinars only. Register today by selecting a session below.
