Project aim:

In this study we aimed to see if replacing one face to face follow up visit after sleep study with a phone call by a trained office staff will

  • decrease the total number of follow up office visits, thus decreasing health care cost
  • increase the number of new patients seen during the 6 month follow up period
  • Did not decrease patient compliance
