The AASM launched its Inter-scorer Reliability Program to help sleep centers meet the AASM accreditation standards for inter-scorer reliability. Since the program began in 2010, it has saved numerous accredited center valuable time; over 80 percent of users would recommend this program to their colleagues. Based on valuable feedback from users, the program is currently being updated. This includes:
- A completely redesigned user-friendly website
- The ability to isolate channels, create custom montages and increase/decrease sensitivities
- A scoring committee to promote more consistent scoring; and more!
Recently the AASM released a video on the ISR website which contains an overview of the upcoming changes to the program. In the video, AASM Director of Education Richard Rosenberg, PhD, a gold-standard scorer for ISR, responded to user feedback and explained the rationale behind the changes.
In order to provide these new updates, the Inter-scorer Reliability website will be down beginning at midnight (12:00AM CST) September 1st through September 5th, 2012. During this time, participants will not be able to access the site or any records; a notification will sent to all ISR participants when the site, along with the September record, becomes available.
