Why Choose the Sleep Centers of Middle Tennessee?
We have an objectively-measured treatment compliance in our practice of over 80% (national average is between 40 and 50%), and have developed protocols that produce these results. Our sleep center’s protocols have been used as models by other companies.
Our insomnia program features insomnia identification, cognitive Behavioral Treatment (CBT), sleep hygiene and treatment often eliminating or reducing expensive and addictive medications.
We conduct ongoing research, not only with collegiate athletes you may have read about but with ongoing compliance monitoring and the effectiveness of home-based sleep studies.
Decreasing Healthcare Costs.
With combined diagnostic and treatment sleep study protocols, home-studies (where clinically indicated) and insurer reimbursement of 1/3 that of hospital-based labs, our treatment protocols provide the most economic option in the region while providing the highest standard of care.
Online Patient Monitoring.
We were the first sleep center in the country to introduce and provide beta testing for Philips Respironics with online monitoring of CPAP patients. This ongoing program is instrumental to our successful outcomes in treating sleep apnea with CPAP.
We train post doctoral fellows in our Behavioral Sleep Medicine Fellowship Program.
