Easier for Patients, More Practical for Physician Practices
Apneasure’s Home Sleep Test allows the patient to sleep comfortably at home while yielding accurate test results for their physician. Facility based sleep studies are undesirable and burdensome for patients, and are not always feasible. A change in environment can disrupt sleeping patterns and skew test results.
For physician practices, the process is just as simple. Apneasure’s high service standards ensure easy ordering along with fast clear test results and national insurance plan coverage. Plus, there may be less need to refer patients out of a practice to a sleep or pulmonary specialist, thus ensuring continuity of care.
Accurate, Reliable Sleep Apnea Testing
Portable polysomnography devices such as Apneasure’s are highly accurate in determining a patients Apnea Hypopnea Index (AHI). The effectiveness of the testing device is recognized by Medicare and has been cited in the Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine.
Lower Cost for Payors and Patients
The average cost for an Apneasure Home Sleep Test is approximately one-third the cost of an overnight polysomnography lab visit. Americans that have health insurance are often sharing these costs with their employer, which usually means the patient is responsible for 20% – 100% of the cost when deductibles have not been met for the year. On average, patients using the Apneasure Home Sleep Test will have a significantly lower co-insurance payment then those patients using a sleep lab facility.
