For too long, the only way to get a patient their sleep apnea diagnosis was to have them undergo a complex and uncomfortable sleep study in a hospital lab. But now there are more options than ever before to help your patients get the treatment they need sooner with accurate sleep apnea testing results—all from the comfort of their own home with an at-home sleep test.
It’s well-known that treatments like CPAP, AutoPAP, or BiPAP are the best way to effectively treat sleep apnea since there is no real cure for the disorder, but your patient needs a sleep apnea diagnosis and a prescription in order to get these treatments.
By entering into an in-office partnership with ApneaMed, medical professionals like you can give your patients quicker, more affordable options for diagnosing their sleep apnea by having a home sleep testing unit in your office. By offering this option to your patients, you can help them get treatment without a hefty price tag and extensive waiting times.
There are so many benefits to having a home sleep test available in your office, but there are also several office partnership options available so you can find the one that suits your practice the best.
Benefits To Your Clinic or Practice
By including a home sleep testing unit as a service in your practice, you can easily get your patients the quick, easy answers they need to start sleeping better and improve their quality of life. When it comes to treating sleep apnea, time is absolutely of the essence. Sleep apnea can lead to extreme health issues like diabetes, cancer, high blood pressure, and heart disease if left untreated.
Because of the high frequency of sleep apnea, paired with the limited resources of sleep labs, waiting lists can prevent your patients from getting the diagnosis and prescription they need to secure treatment. With an ApneaMed home sleep testing unit in-office, you can provide quick, more comprehensive care for your patients.
Allowing your patients to test for their sleep apnea and get treatment without the $2000-$4000 in-lab sleep study price tag is an incredible option, and likely the only viable option for some. By partnering with ApneaMed, you can have a home sleep testing unit on hand in your office where you can control the costs and billing associated with the testing and diagnosis process.

Other Partnership Options
For healthcare providers, ApneaMed strongly advocates for the in-office partnership as it provides you and your patients with the best, most convenient options for sleep apnea home testing. However, we know that this option may not be the best for your practice and so we offer two other partnerships for your consideration:
Referral Partnership: With this option, you can refer patients or employees to ApneaMed for sleep apnea in-home testing. We will contact the referred individual and set them up with their own home sleep testing unit to evaluate them for sleep apnea. Once diagnosed by our board-certified sleep physicians, they will be contacted by our patient care representatives who will review treatment options with them directly.
Mail-Out Partnership: As a medical provider, you will be able to order a home sleep test from ApneaMed and we will then mail the unit to the intended recipient. Once they have successfully completed their home testing, they will mail it back to us for evaluation and diagnosis. Once diagnosed by our board-certified sleep physicians, they will be contacted by our patient care representatives who will review treatment options with them directly.
We hope that you consider a partnership with ApneaMed that meets your patients’ needs. Deciding on the right partnership program will depend on a variety of factors, so we encourage you to contact us directly to help determine which program best suits the needs of your practice and your patients.
