IAC System-Wide Accreditation
IAC QI Solutions are ideally suited for health care systems as accredited facilities experience reductions in administrative and financial burden as processes are standardized and optimized, costs are reduced and most importantly, patient care outcomes are continuously improved.
- System-wide accreditation ensures providers, of diagnostic imaging and intervention-based procedures, deliver the same quality of services within their network of accredited facilities. Alignment of imaging and procedural protocols reduces the need for repeat studies.
- Patients are able to access treatment with confidence they are receiving the same level of care regardless of where they seek treatment within the accredited network.
What can IAC accreditation do for your health care system? Facilities interested in system-wide accreditation should contact Frank Vermeiren, M.S., RT (R)(CV), RDCS for additional details on how to get started.
The Intersocietal Accreditation Commission (IAC) is a nonprofit organization in operation to evaluate and accredit facilities that provide diagnostic imaging and intervention-based procedures, thus improving the quality of patient care provided in private offices, clinics and hospitals where such services are performed. The IAC provides accreditation programs for vascular testing, echocardiography, nuclear/PET, MRI, diagnostic CT, dental CT, carotid stenting, vein treatment and management, cardiac electrophysiology and cardiovascular catheterization. The IAC programs for accreditation are dedicated to ensuring quality patient care and promoting health care and all support one common mission: Improving health care through accreditation®. Committed to its mission through a rigorous peer review process, the IAC has granted accreditation to more than 14,000 sites since its inception in 1991.
