AASM Accreditation

AASM BannerAurora Diagnostic Sleep Center is an AASM accredited diagnostic sleep center. The American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) developed Standards for Accreditation with the primary purpose of ensuring that the highest quality of care is delivered to patients with sleep disorders. The constant evolution of sleep medicine necessitates an update to the AASM Standards for Accreditation to reflect the models of clinical practice that have emerged in recent years. New research, policy and technology are shifting the field toward comprehensive patient management. Accreditation of entities that offer diagnostic testing and comprehensive management for sleep disorders is increasingly important as care focuses on improving population health and engaging patients while containing costs. By achieving accreditation, a sleep disorders facility demonstrates a commitment to the provision of quality diagnostic services and/or long-term management of sleep patients. As the gold standard by which the medical community and the public can evaluate sleep medicine services, AASM accreditation ensures the highest quality of medical care for people with a problem related to sleep or daytime alertness.
