Sleep quality (SQ) is one of the most well-known factors in daily work performance. Sleep is usually analyzed using polysomnography (PSG) by attaching electrodes to the bodies of participants, which is likely sleep destructive. As a result, investigating SQ using a more easy-to-use and cost-effective methodology is currently a hot topic. To avoid overfitting concerns, one likely methodology for predicting SQ can be achieved by reducing the number of utilized signals. In this paper, we propose three methodologies based on electronic health records and heart rate variability (HRV). To evaluate the performance of the proposed methods, several experiments have been conducted using the Osteoporotic Fractures in Men (MrOS) sleep dataset. The experimental results reveal that a deep neural network methodology can achieve an accuracy of 0.6 in predicting light, medium, and deep SQ using only ECG signals recorded during PSG. This outcome demonstrates the capability of using HRV features, which are effortlessly measurable by easy-to-use and cost-effective wearable devices, in predicting SQ.
