Achieving IAC Cardiac Electrophysiology Accreditation: Experience at Grandview Medical Center

MAY 2017 | When the 372-bed Grandview Medical Center opened its doors in October 2015, significant investments had been made in electrophysiology (EP), including 3 state-of-the-art laboratories, a dedicated EP team, and strategic partnership with a local cardiology group. Over the past year, the Grandview EP program grew rapidly to become a high-volume EP center. In 2016, we performed over 2000 procedures: 1050 ablations (800 of which were atrial fibrillation [AF] ablations), 500 cardiac implantable electronic device (CIED) insertions, 70 lead extractions, 70 left atrial appendage occlusion device (WATCHMAN, Boston Scientific) implantations, and many implantable loop recorder implantations, cardioversions, and transesophageal echocardiograms (TEEs).

IAC Cardiac Electrophysiology Accreditation

MAY 2016 | The Heart Rhythm Society (HRS) recently announced the launch of the IAC Cardiac Electrophysiology accreditation program, in which facilities performing EP procedures can document their commitment to quality.

IAC Cardiac Electrophysiology accreditation is designed to certify facilities that perform cardiac electrophysiology procedures by ensuring that the facility meets quality benchmarks based on published clinical guidelines, best practices, and outcomes. The intent of the accreditation process is twofold. It is designed to: (1) recognize facilities that provide quality cardiac EP services, and (2) be used as an educational tool to improve the overall quality of the facility.
