The Value of Accreditation
Saving lives, preventing irreparable heart damage, and improving the CV patient's quality of life are the absolute fundamentals of accreditation. The net of improved CV outcomes means your facility can also measure success in terms of improved patient satisfaction and outcomes; a multi-disciplinary team approach to treatment; a precise CV care strategy; reduced risk and liability; and maximized reimbursements for CV treatment and procedures.

Working with Hospitals and Hospital Systems
ACC works with single, stand-alone hospitals and hospital systems to improve clinical processes for the early assessment, diagnosis and treatment of Acute Coronary Syndrome (ACS), Heart Failure (HF), and Atrial Fibrillation (AF) and to provide educational information about the management of hospital Observation Services units. The implementation of guidelines and standards is within the reach of organizations of all sizes and we work collaboratively with every organization to ensure that your goals are achievable and your needs are meetable.
The proven value of our operational model is evident in the benefits it delivers to single, stand-alone hospitals as well as hospitals that are aligned with larger hospital systems. So, whether moving forward as an individual hospital or collectively as a group of hospitals, you will work alongside our dependable, collegial, and responsive Accreditation Review Specialists to build better internal and external cardiovascular care processes and, even more importantly, better relationships with the patients and the communities you serve.
We've noticed over the past few years that systems are really focused on removing the variation of care throughout their hospitals and we help them accomplish that goal for cardiovascular services. We enable a group of hospitals to go through accreditation together as a team. Some of the benefits include: building teamwork amongst the hospitals, having them all contribute to the definitions of what their best practices look like within the accreditation guidelines, and sharing of their own best practices — it really makes the accreditation process more efficient and more rapidly increases standards of care. It also offers the system executive a way to monitor the consistency of services across all of their hospitals.Carol Smith, Director of Business Development, ACC Accreditation Services
