On-Demand Cath Lab Webinars

Key aspects of Cardiac Cath Lab Accreditation and related topics are shared in the webinars that our Cardiac Cath Lab service line specialist has presented and are now available as on-demand recordings. Guest physicians or other clinical professionals have often served as co-presenters in these topical webinars.

What's Covered:
This webinar covers the value of External Peer Review and Independent Angiographic Review.

Independent Angiographic Review provides for an external vendor to review case documentation and angiographic images.
They offer positive and constructive feedback for your hospital to incorporate into your overall Quality program as well as a process to review any cases resulting in an adverse outcome, sentinel event or serious safety event.

External Peer review provides validation of processes and guidelines. It will elevate the performance of the CCL by use of national criteria and guidelines. Peer review will help mitigate risk and engage physicians in quality outcomes by sharing valuable feedback.

What's Covered: an overview of Cardiac Cath Lab Accreditation; how Cath Lab Accreditation helps you meet the needs of your facility and communities; and the benefits of Cath Lab Accreditation.
