The AASM accreditation is the gold standard by which the medical community and the public can evaluate sleep medicine services. To achieve accreditation for a five-year period, a sleep center must meet or exceed all standards for professional health care as designated by the AASM, including staffing, facility and equipment; policies and procedures; data acquisition; patient care; and quality assurance.
