Cutting Out Time-Intensive Manual Scoring
A nine-bed sleep center at a large Midwestern health system recently piloted the EnsoSleep platform. The clinic sought to reduce the scoring time each technologist spent per diagnostic sleep study. Additionally, the center hoped clinicians could shift their activities to more revenue-generating and patient-centric procedures.
After incorporating EnsoSleep for a few weeks:
- The center reduced its backlog by increasing HSTs by 43%.
- Its 3.4 FTE staff members recovered 100 hours each month — time that would otherwise be spent poring over previously collected PSGs and HSTs.
- Today, the team has doubled its number of daytime CPAP desensitizations, reducing its waitlist by 76%.
With the assistance of EnsoSleep, the center’s clinicians now even have time to support outreach centers by helping to acquire and score the increased volume of PSG studies.
