Features and Benefits of EP Accreditation

EP Supports Your Process Improvement Efforts.

Quality Metric Options: Those facilities implementing an EP Accreditation program, may choose either the AFib Ablation Registry or the EP Device Implant Registry or the LAAO Registry™ to support quality metrics.

Clinical Quality Measure Options: EP also utilizes NCDR Registry® data to support clinical decisions. Facilities already participating in one of the following four NCDR hospital registries will be positioned to rapidly focus on performance improvement efforts.

  • EP Device Implant Registry
  • AFib Ablation Registry
  • LAAO Registry
  • IMPACT Registry® (for pediatrics)

In addition to the noted NCDR registries, other nationally-recognized data registries and hospital quality committee approved, facility-specific dashboards are acceptable data sources for EP accreditation. EP accreditation links process improvement to patient outcomes and promotes consistent processes across the care continuum.
