AF Accreditation Webinar
We have two pre-recorded videos to help inform your understanding of Atrial Fibrillation Accreditation:
The Value of Atrial Fibrillation Accreditation
View Time: 21 minutes
Essential Components of Atrial Fibrillation Accreditation
View Time: 62 minutes
Learn how this new accreditation approach takes the framework of Cycle I Atrial Fibrillation (AF) Certification and turns it into a powerful tool designed specifically to drive the implementation of evidence-based guideline-driven clinical practice, up-to-date performance measurements, and process improvement across the continuum of patient care — from the community and primary care, into the ED, through the hospital experience and back out into the community. In this third introductory webinar, learn how AF Accreditation Services can help you identify specific clinical problems and gaps, use tools to improve processes, and monitor progress and outcomes.
HF Accreditation Webinar
We have two pre-recorded videos to help inform your understanding of Heart Failure Accreditation:
The Value of Heart Failure Accreditation
View Time: 21 minutes
Essential Components of Heart Failure Accreditation
View Time: 37 minutes
Learn how to effectively manage your growing Heart Failure (HF) patient population. Designed for clinicians by clinicians, HF keeps patient flow at the center of data aggregation. A vast range of clinical scenarios, metrics and process drill-downs show you everything from population length-of-stay and readmission rates to Emergency Department throughput, specific provider type care measures, rate of consults and much more.
- Better identification and defined referral process of patients requiring advanced therapy
- Increased resources within all Guidance Statements and References
- Additional clinical guidance regarding appropriate use of Observation Services
- Focused data utilization to reduce 30-day readmissions, improve patient satisfaction, decrease length-of-stay and inpatient mortality
Cath Lab Accreditation Webinar
We have two pre-recorded videos to help inform your understanding of Cardiac Cath Lab Accreditation:
The Value of Cardiac Cath Lab Accreditation
View Time: 18 minutes
Essential Components of Cardiac Cath Lab Accreditation
View Time 42 minutes
Cardiac Cath Lab Accreditation is an operational model that merges the latest science and process improvement within the Cardiac Cath Lab.
It Provides Actionable Data To Support Clinical Decisions
Utilizes NCDR CathPCI Registry® data to support clinical decision
Links process improvement to patient outcomes
Promotes consistent processes across the care continuum
CCL is the result of diligent work by leading interventional cardiologists and cath lab administrators. It incorporates the ACC/SCAI Consensus Document for Catheterization Laboratory Standards and other evidence-based science with quality initiatives.
