ASN, Inc. has established itself as one of the nation's leaders in the diagnosis and treatment of sleep disorders. It is our commitment to quality, cost-effective, patient-focus outcomes that has positioned us as a resource to be trusted. Together, we can develop a Center for Excellence at your facility.
There are two major financial obstacles for hospitals wanting to develop their own sleep programs. First, the up-front capital expenditures and personnel costs for the first year are substantial. Secondly, and of more significance, is the difficulty in staffing sleep laboratories. Because most sleep laboratories only perform 1-2 studies per night, any fluctuations in patient scheduling, including cancellations or no-shows, results in significant losses to the hospitals paying full time employees.
Through hospital affiliations, ASN provides a turn-key operation implementing a complete sleep program. ASN purchases all necessary equipment, and employs all administrative and technical personnel. It helps promote and coordinates marketing efforts for launching and growing the sleep laboratory. ASN establishes operations and individualized policies and procedures. As an ongoing process, ASN performs quality assurance testing and data collection for maintaining a state of the art sleep program.
Through its proprietary software program, ASN is able to provide semi-annual statistics for hospital administrators. Comprehensive reports can be used for attaining sleep laboratory certification, for quality assurance analysis used in Joint Commission reviews, for marketing purposes and for improving operational efficiencies.
