CISRE’s Data Management Core provides our investigators and sponsors with immediate access to sleep recordings and prompt sleep study reports. Its versatile IT backbone combines fixed in-lab and mobile domiciliary testing suites to record, score, analyze and archive raw and summary data. Customized software offers robust, secure mechanisms for transmission of sleep recordings and summary data to and from the Scoring Hub from on-site study beds and remote locations across the globe.
An integral component of the CISRE is its Scoring Hub, an AASM-accredited unit with proficiency in scoring and processing polysomnographic data. The Scoring Hub team is led by an ABMS-certified physician in Sleep Medicine, who is responsible for reviewing all studies that have been scored by the team's staff of Registered Polysomnography Technicians (RPSGTs). At each stage of the scoring process (see below), detailed quality assurance measures are databased. CISRE maintains the highest quality of sleep data acquisition and analysis by providing staff regular Q/A feedback and by conducting complementary interscorer reliability exercises on an ongoing basis.
