Amarillo Diagnostic Awarded AASM Accreditation

It’s official! Our sleep center has been re-accredited through the American Academy of Sleep Medicine, again.

AASM Accreditation of Sleep Disorders Centers is a voluntary process for the assessment of sleep programs. By achieving accreditation, a sleep center demonstrates a commitment to the provision of quality diagnostic services and the longitudinal management of sleep patients.

AASM center accreditation reflects a commitment to ensure that sleep disorders patients receive the highest quality of care. In a growing number of states, accreditation is required for reimbursement of many sleep medicine services.

Since 1977, the AASM has accredited sleep facilities utilizing the AASM Standards for Accreditation of Sleep Disorders Centers. The continued quality of these requirements has made AASM center accreditation the gold standard by which the medical community and the public evaluate sleep medicine facilities.

AASM Accreditation and Patient Care

AASM Accreditation of Sleep Disorders Centers acts as an indicator to patients and referring physicians that a facility is dedicated to providing the highest quality of care. With more than 30 years as the leader in setting clinical standards in the field, the AASM has earned recognition as the authority in sleep and sleep center recognition.

Through regular review and revision of the AASM Standards of Accreditation of Sleep Disorders Centers, the AASM has ensured that these requirements continue to incorporate the latest advances in sleep medicine and meet the needs of patients and referring physicians.
