WCH Earns Echocardiography Reaccreditation

WCH Earns Echocardiography Reaccreditation 22November

November 22, 2019 Echocardiography is used to assess different areas of the heart and detect heart disease or signs of serious conditions. Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States, followed closely by stroke as the fourth highest cause of death. According to the American Heart Association, more than 2,150 Americans die from cardiovascular disease which amounts to about one every 40 seconds.

There are many factors that contribute to an accurate diagnosis based on echocardiography. The training and experience of the sonographer performing the procedure, the type of equipment used and the quality assessment metrics each facility is required to measure, all contribute to a positive patient outcome. IAC accreditation is a “seal of approval” that patients can rely on as an indicator of consistent quality care and a dedication to continuous improvement.

Wickenburg Community Hospital has been granted an additional three-year term of accreditation by the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission (IAC) in Echocardiography.  This latest accreditation awarded to Wickenburg Community Hospital demonstrates the facility’s ongoing commitment to providing quality care in echocardiography.

Accreditation by IAC indicates that Wickenburg Community Hospital has undergone an intensive application and review process and is found to be in compliance with the published Standards. Comprised of a detailed self-evaluation followed by a thorough review by a panel of medical experts, the IAC accreditation process enables both the critical operation and technical components of the applicant facility to be assessed, including representative case studies and their corresponding final reports.

The IAC accreditation program is dedicated to ensuring and promoting quality patient care supporting one common mission: Improving Health Care through Accreditation. IAC accreditation is widely respected within the medical community, as illustrated by the support of more than 40 national medical societies. To date, the IAC accrediting divisions have granted accreditation to more than 14,000 sites.
