The AASM accreditation process includes detailed inspections of the clinic’s facility and staff and evaluations of testing procedures and policies, patient safety and follow up, and physician and staff training. In addition, the sleep center must provide clearly stated goals that include plans for positively impacting the quality of sleep medicine care in its local community. The AASM currently accredits more than 1,800 sleep medicine centers across the country.
