EP Accreditation is the result of diligent work by leading interventional cardiologists and EP Lab administrators. This accreditation encompasses Both Adult and Pediatric EP Labs. Electrophysiology Accreditation applies a holistic approach to the assessment, treatment, and management of patients receiving EP Lab services.
Each facility that begins Electrophysiology Accreditation is assigned an expert navigator to assist them along the accreditation journey. ACC's Accreditation Review Specialists are highly dedicated clinicians with real-world experience treating cardiovascular (CV) patients in the hospital setting. Individually and collectively, they are an indispensable resource for those who are committed to implementing the essential elements of quality improvement.
Accreditation training prepares facilities to begin the quality and process improvement journey. Each ACC Accreditation includes comprehensive education to orient your staff to the fundamental elements of the accreditation process.
Note: The Accreditation purchase process (including ACC business agreement and payment for initial year of Accreditation participation or recurring annual payment) must be completed in order to gain access to the Accreditation tool and related training.
