Healthy Sleep Solutions is Australia’s largest facilitator of home based sleep studies and Sleep Apnea treatment. We offer our patients comprehensive ongoing support through our Patient Pathway program.
HOME SLEEP TESTING
Traditionally, sleep apnea testing has been conducted in a specialist sleep laboratories or hospital beds.
The limited number of specialists and testing locations resulted in bottleneck in the screening process producing significant waiting times for patients.
Healthy Sleep Solutions was integral in pioneering ambulatory home sleep testing which is recorgnised by Medicare as a safe and effective alternative to laboratory testing.
Our Home Sleep Testing is cost effective and offers a proffessional sleep test in the convienance and comfort of your own bed, with little to no waiting lists and a fast turn around on results from our dedicated, independent specialist in Sydney.

THE PATIENT PATHWAY
IDENTIFICATION OF SLEEPING DISORDER
You are a referred to an independent specialist Sleep Physician to identify whether or not you have Sleep Apnea.
If you think you may be at risk of Sleep Apnea you can contact your nearest Sleep Technician who can discuss your symptoms and with you help you take the first steps along our Patient Pathway Program. This involves getting a referral from your GP to undertake a sleep assessment with Healthy Sleep Solutions. You should discuss any concerns with your doctor.
DIAGNOSIS & TESTING
Our program allows you to undertake a sleep assessment in the comfort of your home. Your independent specialist Sleep Physician will assess your results and recommend the appropriate treatment if you are diagnosed with Sleep Apnea.
On the day of your sleep test you will meet with your Sleep Technician who will take a brief medical history, provide you with more information on Sleep Apnea and show you how to use the equipment that will test you for Sleep Apnea.
Your Sleep Technician will also book you in for another appointment to review the results of your sleep test.
TREATMENT OF SLEEP APNEA
It begins with a multi-week Treatment Introduction providing you all the personalised coaching and support to ensure the successful treatment of your Sleep Apnea.
If you are diagnosed with Sleep Apnea and your specialist Sleep Physician has recommended CPAP therapy, we will provide a multi-week treatment program.
During this time your Sleep Technician will meet and speak with you as often as you need to help with the equipment, answer any questions you may have and offer advice for getting the most out of your treatment.
The aim of this program is to ensure you have the device, mask and accessories that will result in the most comfortable and effective management of your Sleep Apnea.
The Sleep Technician will also provide you with an update on how the treatment is progressing by using data captured on your CPAP device. Your referring doctor will also be kept up to date on how your treatment is progressing and how well you are responding to it.
As part of our service, we will offer payment plans on your treatment device.
