Florida Based American Sleep Medicine Announces New Continuum of Care Model
December 23, 2013 (PRLEAP.COM) Health NewsDecember 23, 2013 Jacksonville, FL – American Sleep Medicine (ASM), one of the nation's largest independent sleep disorder treatment companies, has embarked on a Continuum of Care strategy to better serve those with sleep difficulties by introducing its American Sleep Products (ASP) division in key markets.
"Our new ASP division gives the company an opportunity to establish a Continuum of Care model that few others have around the country", said Jerry Lauch, Chairman of ASM. "We can now offer the continuum of testing, diagnosing, and treating our patients by using the latest Continuous Positive Air Pressure (CPAP) technology available when indicated."
Patients that test positive for Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) are typically prescribed a CPAP machine and mask to treat the disorder. ASP also provides a Sleep Coach to its patients which gives the patient their best opportunity for compliance, the key to achieving long term results.
With 20 facilities across the United States, ASM is capable of treating patients quickly because of its business model that includes many beds per facility. Referring physicians can refer a patient to their their local ASM and have the patient seen by a Board Certified sleep physician, be tested within 24 hours, receive a diagnosis of the patient's disorder, and have them treated all in the same location.
