As the premier professional society for sleep specialists, the American Academy of Sleep Medicine is committed to providing members with the tools necessary for your practice to thrive. Earlier this week the AASM launched Evolve Sleep, a comprehensive new web portal for members that will equip you with the resources you need to optimize your sleep medicine practice to provide high value, patient-centered care.

Evolve Sleep offers a wealth of Practice Management resources that will bring you up to speed on critical issues such as payment reform, telemedicine, electronic health record (EHR) integration, and home sleep apnea testing (HSAT). Information and tools related to practice guidelines, quality measures and accreditation will help you implement Practice Standards to improve care. Finally, a variety of Patient Outreach assets are available to help you educate patients and raise awareness of the importance of healthy sleep.

Access to Evolve Sleep is a free benefit for AASM members, and the tools available to you on the site will continue to expand in the months ahead. I encourage you to log in today and begin exploring the abundance of Evolve Sleep resources.

Both the health care system and the field of sleep medicine are changing rapidly. How will your sleep medicine practice evolve?
