Add Academy to ECW or other EMR to send orders for Sleep & EEG Testing Outpatient for Kids and Adults in Texas

Dear Colleague,

Sleep referrals are complex these days.

·      Home sleep test?  In-Lab Test?
·      Adult patients fail with home tests.
·      Patients fail home AUTO CPAP.

For 10 years Academy and its physician experts have welcomed infants and children of all ages & complexity.   Our affiliated Houston AND San Antonio  specialists can be seen HERE.

What can you do for your patients and to make the office flow smoothly?

Optimize your EMR function by adding Academy Diagnostics:

  • ·      Academy Diagnostics will help your patients and your practice access gold-standard care.
  • ·      Academy can save you and your MA time.

In eClinicalWorks  or another EMR, add Academy Diagnostics to seamlessly refer your sleep and EEG procedures via P2P or other systems, by the following:

1)   Add us to your Referring providers
