Ahead of the weekend, MHW learned that the American Academy of Sleep Medicine introduced AASM Sleep Select, a streamlined telemedicine system that enables sleep medicine professionals, accredited sleep centers and durable medical equipment (DME) providers to rapidly improve patient access to care by integrating secure video visits.
AASM Sleep Select is a sleek, state-of the-art system comprising the two elements that are essential for a quick entry into telemedicine: a HIPAA-compliant, web-based video platform and a patient self-pay feature that facilitates convenient, secure payments.
We’re told that its ease of use makes the system the perfect selection for sleep specialists and DME providers who want to conduct their first video consultations and follow-up visits. To expedite the widespread adoption of telemedicine in the field of sleep medicine, the AASM is making AASM SleepTM Select available for free to all of its 2,500 accredited sleep centers.
“Telemedicine represents affordable, convenient, patient-centered care, and AASM SleepTM Select makes it easier than ever for sleep centers and DME providers to implement a telemedicine program in their practice,” said American Academy of Sleep Medicine Executive Director Jerry Barrett. “AASM SleepTM Select enables sleep centers to quickly and easily provide for their patients a sophisticated, seamless telemedicine experience.”
