Find Your Heart a Home™ Site Profile Information

 

There are two scenarios that will prompt the inclusion of a facility's NCDR and ACC Accreditations/Certifications details in the Find Your Heart a Home (FYHAH) tool, which is located on ACC's CardioSmart ® website.

Scenario A: Applies to facilities participating in an NCDR® Registry or ACC Quality Program. If a facility has previously completed the FYHAH Site Profile, the facility's information will be automatically updated to include all ACC Accreditations or Certifications.

Accreditation Site Coordinators are encouraged to work collaboratively with the facility's Registry Site Manager to ensure that the facility's Accreditation/Certification detail is correct as recorded in the Registry Site Profile. The inclusion of a facility's Accreditation/Certification detail is scheduled to appear in FYHAH mid-October 2020. 

Scenario B
: Applies to facilities that do not participate in an NCDR Registry or ACC Quality Program. Accreditation Site Coordinators now have the opportunity to create a FYHAH profile from the respective Accreditation service line tools. The inclusion of earned Accreditations and/or Certifications will be managed as follows:

Step 1:
Accredited/Certified facilities that do not participate in an NCDR Registry or Quality Program, are encouraged to complete the Site Profile in order to populate the FYHAH locator. 

To include Accreditation/Certification detail in your facility's FYHAH profile, follow these instructions:
1) Login
2) Under the ‘Actions’ drop-down menu click on ‘Manage Site Profile’
2) Complete all information and questions
3) Click ‘Save’ 

Once your information is submitted it will be queued for inclusion in the FYHAH profiles update scheduled for mid-October 2020. 

Step 2
Once the Accreditation/Certification detail displays in the FYHAH locator on the CardioSmart website, the facility representative(s) are asked to review the information for accuracy.
