Deborah Heart and Lung Center Earns Nuclear Cardiology Reaccreditation by IAC

Deborah’s cardiology section of Nuclear Medicine has been granted a three-year term of accreditation by the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission (IAC) in Nuclear Cardiology. This latest accreditation awarded to Deborah demonstrates the Hospital’s ongoing commitment to providing quality patient care in nuclear cardiology.

Nuclear cardiology is vital in diagnosing and treating cardiovascular diseases. There are many factors that contribute to an accurate diagnosis based on nuclear cardiology, including the training and experience of the technologists, the type of equipment used, and the quality assessment metrics each facility is required to measure. This IAC accreditation gives Deborah a “seal of approval” that patients can rely on as an indicator of consistent quality care and a dedication to continuous improvement.

Accreditation by the IAC indicates that Deborah has undergone an intensive application and review process and is found to be in compliance with the published standards, demonstrating a commitment to quality patient care in nuclear cardiology. Comprised of a detailed self-evaluation followed by a thorough review by a panel of medical experts, the IAC accreditation process allows for both the critical operational and technical components of the Hospital to be assessed, including representative case studies and their corresponding final reports.
