Scoring as we know it is about the change – are you prepared?

To achieve or maintain accreditation status for your sleep facility, you must be scoring to the new American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) standards by July 1, 2008.

Will you be ready?

Sleep Strategies sleep-scoring services meet the new AASM standards. And we can help you meet them, too.

  • Is your sleep facility ready to implement the new scoring standards?
  • Do your technologists have the knowledge and training to work with the new scoring rules?
  • Do you know what these new standards will mean to your daily scoring of sleep studies?
  • Can you provide guidance, direction and tools so your technologists can apply these new rules?
