Con Iber Fairview Health Systems University of Minnesota Health The Future of Sleep Health
Objectives To identify opportunities in transitioning from sleep medicine to sleep health To propose a snapshot of the future of the field To identify methods of transforming ourselves into what the future requires of us
Caveat There will be unanswered questions that we must all solve together
What are the opportunities for merging sleep medicine into sleep health? More adaptable to changing models diagnosis at home decreased reliance on complex testing increased utilization of evolving therapies More honest- shift work/insufficient sleep preventative methods are more powerful better alignment with driving forces
11.8 million Insufficient sleep and shift work: 49 million Behavioral Genetic Countermeasures Shift workInsufficient sleep 37 million
What are the opportunities for transitioning from sleep medicine into sleep health? More diversified- meets need for distributive model population/employee based flexibility of cross-training workforce More integrated – case finding->diagnosis->therapy population management
Home Sleep Studies [example of forced change] 2012 HomePAP N=373 randomized 2014 Health System N=4625 uncontrolled doi: 10.1155/2014/418246 doi: 10.5665/sleep.1870
Dental devices [example of change to be forced] Gap- underutilization of devices in the US Drivers- user preference guideline changes payer preference
Structural changes: reduce points of care and variation, expand comprehensive care, develop stem to stern pathways, partner, tune to outcomes Behavioral changes: team concept, monitor progress to achievable/meaningful goals, anticipate and manage failure, expand scope of practices Components of Change
“Single visit”: initial diagnostic procedure for uncomplicated sleep apnea and insomnia moved to primary care with therapy determination made by sleep center and virtualization of >50% of point of care followup visits. Consolidation of laboratory studies to verify ambiguous home studies, serious comorbidities, parasomnias, suspected seizures.
Increased scope of onsite clinic operations to include partners in dental, otolaryngology, pediatric, and occupational sleep medicine. Population management to incorporate long term management, innovation, outcome monitoring, payer negotiation.
