In a video statement on the AASM website, AASM President-Elect Timothy I. Morganthaler, MD provides a look at the AASM’s efforts to introduce quality outcomes measurements into the field of sleep. By treating sleep disorders and providing quality measures, sleep physicians can offer payers long-term cost savings by preventing costly health conditions such as heart disease or diabetes. This will ensure a future for sleep medicine coverage. Members are encouraged to view the video statement for a full explanation of these efforts.
