SCAI Article Cites Accreditation for Cardiovascular Excellence (ACE) Studies for Improving Patient Data Documentation

Looks at improving documentation in the catherization lab

 

April 12, 2013

April 12, 2013 — The Society for Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions (SCAI) reports on the “Ten Do’s and Don’ts for Improving Documentation in the Cath Lab” based on studies by the Accreditation for Cardiovascular Excellence (ACE).

The ACE report concludes that many cath labs do not meet reporting standards despite providing excellent care to patients.

“A dominant pattern that we see in our cath lab assessments is the failure to accurately document the factors that support the determination of appropriate use. ACE works to elevate cath lab performance and mitigate risk for all stakeholders,” states Mary Heisler, RN, BA, executive director, ACE. “Cath labs can benefit from ACE services through the development of an integrated quality program and a thorough and in-depth review of documentation.

ACE offers accreditation and independent external review for cath labs.
