Mandate: The Emerging Technology Committee monitors and evaluates emerging and evolving technologies that impact the practice of sleep medicine. This committee is responsible for developing AASM member resources that provide information and analysis on emerging consumer and clinical sleep technology and potential ways to incorporate this technology into clinical practice, when/if appropriate.
Goals for 2021/2022:
- Identify emerging trends and evolving consumer and clinical technologies and collaborate with the Artificial Intelligence in Sleep Medicine Committee to provide an analysis of their impact through an annual report to the membership.
- Develop additional new technology assessment reports while reviewing and updating existing reports on a regular basis.
- Develop educational resources for members that include guidance on the use of the highest-prioritized technologies (e.g., Montage content, webinars, podcast episodes, etc.).
- Gather more information from industry and provide feedback and recommendations to industry to improve clinical utility of emerging technologies.
