Clinical and Business Trends
Lawrence Epstein, MD
Lawrence Epstein, MD, former Medical Director of SleepHealthCenters and Harvard Medical School faculty, gives a crash course on the use of home sleep testing in sleep centers. Despite industry trends, many sleep centers are slow to adopt out of sleep center testing as a tool in the diagnosis of obstructive sleep apnea. Dr. Epstein lays out the advantages and disadvantages of the use of home sleep testing by sleep centers from a business and medical standpoint. He also shares how to integrate portable testing into sleep center operations.
