Session at upcoming AASM courses to review Innovation Proposal

Monday, February 13, 2012

AASM President Nancy Collop, MD, will review the proposal for the Innovation Care Delivery and Management Program for Patients with OSA at a special session that will be held for attendees of the upcoming AASM Winter courses in Phoenix, Ariz. The evening session, followed by a reception, will be held on Saturday, Feb. 25, at the Arizona Biltmore.

During the informational session, Dr. Collop will provide attendees with background information about the proposal as well as insight into the AASM's plans for implementation pending grant approval. Additional faculty will discuss elements within the proposal and how this new model for care could affect the future practice of clinical sleep medicine.

The informational session is free to all attendees of the AASM's Sleep Medicine Therapies and Business of Sleep Medicine for Physicians courses, which will be held on Feb. 24-27. The courses, which will review state-of-the-art in sleep center patient care management and business practices, are an ideal opportunity for practicing clinicians to review the latest developments and issues in the field.
