Sleep Review‘s webcast Cashing in on Home Sleep Testing is now available for on-demand viewing.

In the hour-long free webcast, Sleep Review editor Sree Roy and four expert presenters provided real-life advice on how to make money on home sleep testing (HST) in a sleep practice this year. Two polls reveal when audience members started offering HST and how many typically do an in-lab titration following an HST. During the last 15 minutes, the presenters also answered audience questions.

In this webcast, you will learn:

  • How to choose a HST model that works for your practice, including key factors in whether to in-source or outsource the program
  • How to market your HST program to new patients, well beyond the patients you are currently seeing
  • Managing overhead related to launching and maintaining a profitable HST program
