Somnology IDTF: Independent Diagnostic Testing Facility

Untreated sleep disorders can present major health risks, affecting around 70 million people in the United States. With only 3,500 board-certified sleep physicians in the United States, it can be difficult for those suffering from sleep problems to locate a specialist able to help them. However, through the utilization of telemedicine, diagnosis and treatment become much more accessible. We are able to bring the service of a sleep lab conveniently with ease to the patient. Somnology’s goal is to provide patients a comforting journey with confidence through our specialized workflow.

Through our diagnostic treatment model, we have been able to save a current client, the Veterans Association, in excess of 58% in expense against their historical cost using our coordinated care model as well as see patients from all 50 states. Through our years of experience in telehealth we have been able to decrease the patient’s waiting period for a sleep test from 180 days to full assessment, evaluation and scoring in a turn-around of 14 days.

The Somnology IDTF (Independent Diagnostic Testing Facility) is a patient-focused sleep lab. We are committed to providing patients with premier service and best suited, accurate and efficient testing device. Our patients can expect prompt and courteous service from our staff.

Allow us to be of service to you and your patient in addressing sleep disorders. Along with this announcement, the Somnology IDTF brochure addresses our service along with contact details. Please complete the questionnaire to inform us as to how we could better address your need for a better night’s sleep. Let’s commence this process by faxing a Sleep Study Order Form to Somnology IDTF.
