ACE Releases Complete Video Series on Accreditation; Gears up for CV Summit

"The best defense is to be ahead of the game. The reason for engaging ACE is to find out if you have a quality problem in the cardiac cath lab. The cost is justified by the end result."
— Gregory J. Dehmer, MD, FSCAI, Scott & White, Texas A&M College of Medicine

Washington, DC — January 14, 2014. The entire 3-Part Accreditation Series about Accreditation for Cardiovascular Excellence (ACE), taped during the 2013 Society for Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions (SCAI) Scientific Sessions in Orlando, FL, is now available. The final videos present the value of ACE Cath Lab Accreditation from the perspective of physicians who have worked with ACE.

ACE Accreditation provides expert guidance on quality metrics, practice improvement and cost of care outcomes. "The best defense is to be ahead of the game," said Gregory J. Dehmer, MD, FSCAI, Scott & White, Texas A&M College of Medicine. "The reason for engaging ACE is to find out if you have a quality problem in the cardiac cath lab (CCL). The cost is justified by the end result." ACE provides cardiology experts to validate compliance with the latest science that includes guidelines and consensus documents. "To be recognized as a leader in the CCL is worth the price of accreditation," agreed Charles E. Chambers, MD, FSCAI, Penn State Hershey Medical Center.

Find out how your cath lab can benefit from the experts at ACE.
