The AASM Sleep Clinical Data Registry (Sleep CDR) is the first registry dedicated solely to sleep medicine and supports the AASM strategic goal of advocacy to improve patient care. Sleep CDR was approved by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) as a Qualified Clinical Data Registry (QCDR).

The registry supports data collection, benchmarking, and reporting for measures in the AASM quality measure portfolio, including:

  • Adult Obstructive Sleep Apnea
  • Screening for Adult Obstructive Sleep Apnea by primary care physicians
  • Pediatric Obstructive Sleep Apnea
  • Restless Leg Syndrome

What are the benefits of using the registry?

  • INCREASE REIMBURSEMENT: easily participate in the CMS Quality Payment Program so you can avoid penalties and potentially earn incentives for participating
  • REPORT SLEEP SPECIALTY MEASURES: track and report the type of sleep services you provide patients most instead of just reporting general care measures
  • SIMPLIFIED REPORTING: once the necessary data is entered, the registry automatically populates and submits MIPS data to CMS and quality measure reports can be easily downloaded to demonstrate compliance with AASM accreditation quality assurance and improvement standards
  • BENCHMARKING: understand how you and/or your center compares to other clinicians or centers of similar size and practice and be able to identify strengths and areas for improvement
  • DEMONSTRATE VALUE: use reports from the registry to show leadership or payers how your care leads to improved outcomes in your patients
  • IMPROVE PRACTICE OPERATIONS: proactively develop plans to address areas for improvement in your practice to ensure your patients receive the highest quality care
Kannan Ramar AASM President

The AASM is proud to start a registry dedicated solely to sleep medicine. This Sleep Clinical Data Registry will collect data to test quality measures on various sleep disorders, initiate quality, and research projects, and participate in reporting programs. This will help our members and centers with accreditation, reimbursement, and benchmarking with other centers to improve quality care for our patients.” — Kannan Ramar, MD
