Securing a timely sleep test is one of the biggest concerns facing dental sleep practices today. Many testing companies charge onerous sign-on fees, take weeks to produce a diagnosis, and provide no transparency to the process. We built our diagnostic sleep testing program from the ground up with these issues in mind.
Home sleep testing with a personal touch
We handle all administration and customer service necessary to onboard the patient. As part of the home sleep test process we:
Verify patient insurance coverage within 24 hours of referral
Call patient to schedule delivery within 24 hours of approval
Hand-deliver and educate patient on device use
Retrieve and upload data for scoring by board-certified sleep physician
Deliver the results to you within 7-10 business days*
We describe our HST service as concierge for good reason. We work fast to ensure your patients get the most efficient service possible. Hand delivery and pick up allows us to keep our turnaround times at 7-10 business days, unlike competitor turnaround times which are delayed by shipping.
*Turnaround times are dependent on immediate patient availability.
The SleepMed ARES
The ARES is capable of recording and scoring respiratory events during sleep (e.g., apneas, hypopnea, mixed apneas and flow limiting events). After the patient has completed the test, the HST America technician connects the device to an online portal, which transmits the information to a board-certified sleep physician licensed in the patient’s state of residence. Diagnosis and treatment recommendations are then provided to the patient’s referring dentist.
