Sustainable Methods, Algorithms, and Research Tools for Delivering Optimal Care Study
Sustainable Methods, Algorithms, and Research Tools for Delivering Optimal Care Study (SMART DOCS) was designed to develop and evaluate a new approach (patient-centered outcomes and coordinated-care management [PCCM]) for the diagnosis and treatment of sleep disorders. Specialized and pertinent information and resources regarding sleep disorder management were developed and made available through an online portal, allowing patients to make informed health care decisions, and providers to assist patients in achieving what they feel are the most important goals regarding their care. Half of participants were randomized into the conventional diagnosis and treatment (CONV) arm and the other half into the patient-centered outcomes and coordinated-care management (PCCM) arm. Validated objective and subjective assessment measures were administered at intervals throughout a 13 month participation period in both the CONV and PCCM arms to determine whether the new PCCM approach for sleep medicine results in increased patient satisfaction, quality of care, and improved health outcomes. Qualifying participants were 18 years of age or older and presenting with a new sleep disorder. Patients received no monetary compensation.
