Meet the Masters: Featured Speakers at SLEEP 2024

The upcoming event will feature a lineup of lecturers who will delve into some of the most intriguing aspects of sleep science. These experts will explore topics ranging from brain remodeling to narcolepsy and maternal-fetal circadian synchrony. With their insights and knowledge, attendees can trust them to spark thought-provoking discussions, inspire breakthroughs, and pave the way for the future of sleep science. 

The event will start with an exciting presentation delivered by these speakers:

Essential Sleep Features for Brain Remodeling 

The keynote speaker for SLEEP 2024 will be Gina Poe, PhD, a distinguished sleep scientist. Dr. Poe completed her doctoral studies in neuroscience at UCLA and then went on to conduct postdoctoral research at the University of Arizona. The NIH has funded her REM sleep and memory research for over 20 years. Her research has focused on the relationship between sleep and resilience to PTSD and has provided insights into the complex issues surrounding network remodeling.

New Developments in Narcolepsy

Dr. Emmanuel Mignot, who holds an MD and PhD, is a leading researcher who has significantly contributed to understanding narcolepsy. He is known for his pioneering work in characterizing medications for narcolepsy and establishing cerebrospinal fluid hypocretin-1 as a diagnostic tool. Currently, his research focuses on developing new diagnostic tools for narcolepsy, studying genes associated with the disorder, and investigating potential infectious triggers, Kleine-Levin syndrome, and other related conditions.

Advancing Sleep Medicine with 1st Providers Choice EHR 

As an annual event dedicated to gathering the finest experts, SLEEP 2024 opens the floor for meaningful discussion on the latest issues affecting patients and fellow clinicians. This event also serves as a platform for innovative solutions, including EHR and EMR systems specific to sleep medicine. 

These electronic features are crucial in enhancing the efficiency, effectiveness, and overall quality of sleep clinic services:

Administrative Efficiency:

Referral Tracking module enables sleep clinics to manage patient referrals from other healthcare providers efficiently. It tracks the referral process, ensures timely communication between referring physicians and the sleep clinic, and facilitates seamless coordination of patient care. 

Electronic Super Bills are valuable tools for billing specialists that automate the process of creating super bills. This feature ensures accurate and standardized documentation of services provided during patient visits, reducing errors and speeding up the reimbursement process. 

Electronic Patient Statements are a helpful way for patients to receive a transparent and detailed breakdown of their medical expenses. Sleep clinics generate these statements to enhance communication with patients regarding financial responsibilities, simplify the payment process for patients and clinic staff, and improve transparency in billing.

Clinical Fusion:

Labs & Diagnostic Integration in sleep clinics allow staff to access test results promptly, promote efficient care coordination, and provide clinicians with all the essential information to make informed treatment decisions. Incorporating the labs and tests with the EMR or sleep lab software eliminates manual data entry and reduces the risk of errors.

Vitals Interface is a tool that enables healthcare providers to capture and document vital signs in real-time during patient visits. This feature improves the accuracy of patient records, provides clinicians with valuable clinical data for assessing and planning treatments, and enables remote monitoring of patients’ sleep health between appointments.

Patient Engagement and Communication:

Patient Portal is a platform that enables patients to be involved in their care by giving them online access to their medical information. This information includes test results, treatment plans, educational resources, and other relevant materials related to sleep disorders. 

Alerts and Reminders are efficient tools that help ensure timely follow-up care and adherence to treatment plans for patients with sleep disorders. Clinicians can set automated reminders for upcoming appointments, medication refills, or recommended lifestyle changes, significantly improving patient compliance and outcomes.
