How the Home Sleep Testing Process Works for Physicians2019-02-21T14:23:27-05:00

Home Sleep Testing Process

HST Process for Physicians

For patients that do not have complicated medical histories and prefer the convenience and comfort of a home sleep test as opposed to an in-lab test, Vitalistics™ makes it easy for doctors and patients, 18 years of age and older, to benefit from home sleep testing. We provide continuous patient assistance and a quality interpreted report with a clinical diagnosis and recommended plan for treatment.  Customized tools and workflows make the process easy for both the physician and the patient.

Easy

Prior to the delivery of the test, Vitalistics will contact the patient to walk them through the process and answers any questions they may have.  The home sleep test device is then delivered directly to the patient’s door with easy-to-follow instructions. Vitalistics provides continuous patient support throughout the testing process, including a 24-hour, 7 day/week hotline and access to a live, US-based Registered Sleep Technologists. We work with your patients to ensure the testing process goes smoothly and any questions that they may have are answered quickly. The natural at-home sleep environment facilitates a normal night’s sleep, improving the accuracy of test results.
