Ensuring patients an unsurpassed level of quality care
Pacific Sleep Program is proud to be fully accredited by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM). This designation means that PSP adheres to evidence-based practice parameters and quality assurance standards. It also ensures that all staff are highly skilled and qualified, and that the cleanliness and comfort of our clinic environment is unsurpassed.
How PSP achieved accreditation
PSP began the accreditation process by completing a lengthy application package and submitting it to the AASM national office. The application was reviewed by the Accreditation Committee to ensure complete compliance with all accreditation standards. Once compliance was established, PSP received an on-site visit from an AASM representative who thoroughly reviewed all practice policies and records, and interviewed all staff members and consulting physicians. After reviewing the on-site visit report, the AASM Board of Directors made the decision to offer PSP full accreditation.
Don’t settle for anything less
AASM accreditation is the gold standard by which patients, organizations and companies evaluate sleep disorders centers. In fact, third party payers in many states will only provide reimbursement for sleep studies if they are conducted at an AASM-accredited facility.
Sleep centers and laboratories that aren’t AASM accredited simply to do not meet the high standards for clinical accuracy and quality patient care. If you suffer from a sleep disorder, you deserve the highest quality evaluation and treatment available. At PSP we are proud to provide this to you, our valued patients.
Do you know the difference between an accredited sleep disorders center and a Sleep laboratory?
- An accredited sleep disorders center is a comprehensive, full service medical facility providing clinical diagnostic services and treatment for patients with symptoms that suggest the presence of one or more of a variety of different sleep disorders.
- A sleep laboratory provides diagnostic and treatment services limited to sleep-related breathing disorders, such as obstructive sleep apnea syndrome.
