What is Telemedicine?

Patients and doctors are busier than ever before. Both are leveraging technology to stay on track with deadlines, goals, and organization. One of the newer tools for use on both sides is telemedicine.

Telemedicine is a virtual, secure, video conversation platform that allows you to see your doctor from almost anywhere. Usually requiring only an internet connection, a webcam, and PC or laptop, telemedicine gives you more convenient access to providers who would have been out of reach.

Sleep Medicine and Telemedicine

The American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) recognizes that telemedicine represents the future of health care. In order to effectively reach people who are in rural areas, or just too busy to make it to their doctor, we have created a telemedicine platform for you to connect with sleep specialists.

AASM SleepTM is a robust system that allows you to track your sleep patterns, request telemedicine appointments, send secure messages directly to your doctor, and much more. You can get started by creating a free account to begin using the sleep diary and sleep tracking features. You also can find a sleep provider and request a video visit using AASM SleepTM.
