HSAT( Home Sleep Apnea Testing) is considered a best practice and is supported by the Office of Specialty Care Services, Telehealth Service, and Office of Veteran Access to Care. Home Sleep Apnea Testing is sharply increasing to meet Veteran demands. Implementation of a home sleep apnea testing program has become an intragal part of the Sleep Medicine Program Office as a way to address access issues. Implementation of a home sleep testing program bring many beneifts to sleep programs such as reduced costs over Community Care and Veteran travel.
