ABOUT

Sleep Consult, LLC provides consulting for existing sleep lab managers and owners preparing for accreditation or those labs wanting to increase efficiency and profitability of their operations. One unique facet of services we provide is peer to peer consulting.

Sleep lab accreditation has been voluntary however the process is quickly becoming a requirement for Independent Diagnostic Testing Facilities (IDTF’s) and hospitals with Medicare, multiple states and private insurers. The accreditation process validates your lab is in compliance with regulations and outlining guidelines for a higher standard of operations. 

Currently there are a few organizations that provide accreditation services, including the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) and the Joint Commission on Accreditation for Healthcare Organizations, Ancillary Services and Accreditation Commission for Health Care (ACHC).

If you are seeking accreditation or general business consultation for your Sleep Facility, let our years of experience in Sleep work for you.
