About the IAC Research Program

As the IAC Research Program embarks on its sixth year, progress toward fulfilling its mission of Strengthening Accreditation Through Research has been realized in terms of several published manuscripts and abstracts. Accredited facilities, as well as all stakeholders within the medical community, are encouraged to review the research being put forth in the published abstracts and manuscripts section.

RESEARCH COMMITTEE MEMBERS: Gary V. Heller, MD, PhD (Research Officer); John Choi, MD, MPH; Kevin Cockroft, MD, MSc; Heather Gornik, MD, RVT; RPVI, Scott D. Jerome, DO, FACC, FASNC; Leo Lopez, MD, FASE, FACC, FAAP; Mark Meissner, MD; Warren J. Manning, MD; Mary Lally, MS, CAE; and Mary Beth Farrell, MS, CNMT, NCT, FSNMTS (IAC Director of Research).

Identifying research as a core strategy toward furthering its mission of Improving health care through accreditation®, the IAC began efforts to support innovative and meritorious research programs relevant to facility accreditation in 2012.

As part of that initiative, the IAC launched a major research effort into all aspects of accreditation with the expressed purpose to critically evaluate and improve the process with the establishment of the IAC Research Committee. The IAC Research Committee consists of a research officer and representation from each IAC division.
