I’ve never been more excited to attend a course. Will you join me?

Sleep Medicine Trends 2015 is the premier course for sleep clinicians, with a bold agenda that not only updates our clinical knowledge, but also addresses the most important practical issues in the field: physician reimbursement, changing practice models, telehealth, home sleep apnea testing, preauthorization, DME and much more. I hope you will join me and hundreds of other sleep specialists from Friday to Sunday, Feb. 20 – 22, in beautiful Scottsdale, Arizona.

I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to present the opening keynote lecture, “Implementing the AASM’s Quality Measures into Your Practice.” As a course attendee you will get an exclusive preview of the new metrics developed by the AASM to evaluate the quality of care in sleep medicine.

The recent announcement that the Department of Health and Human Services has set new goals to transition Medicare away from a fee-for-service payment model should be a wake-up call for all physicians. A new era of value based care has arrived, and implementing the AASM quality measures will keep you ahead of the curve.

I’m also eager to sit with you in the audience to learn from some of the brightest minds in the field. From top to bottom the course agenda is filled with relevant lectures including:

  • Trends in Healthcare Delivery and Reimbursement
  • Changing Your Practice Model in the World of ACOs, Bundled Payments and the Affordable Care Act
  • Managing Patients in the World of Apps, Mobile Devices and Fitbits
  • Telehealth in Sleep Medicine: A Protocol for Your Practice

Sleep Medicine Trends 2015 is the course that every sleep clinician needs to attend. Learn how to optimize your sleep practice to deliver and demonstrate high value care. Earn 20 CME credits. Network with colleagues and peers. Interact with representatives from leading companies in the exhibit hall.
