Reliable certification of interventional cardiology facilities on quality, safety, and efficiency

The CardiacSite evaluation process promotes industry best practices for the US and its territories’ cardiac catheterization labs and hybrid suites. CardiacSite works with private payers, hospitals, and provider systems to access facilities’ service, personnel, and equipment, ensuring quality of care and safety for patients.

Why assess the safety and quality of interventional cardiology facilities?

HealthHelp and CardiacSite believe interventional cardiology is essential to the continuum of care, stressing quality and safety for enrolled facilities. As technology rapidly evolves, it is also important to assess the skills and policies of personnel performing procedures, maximize information gained through services, and eliminate poor quality or unsafe patient care.

Evaluation not only helps improve care, but also allows more funding to provide enrollees with advanced care. This equates to paying for a minimum standard of imaging and procedural quality and safety, ensuring services are performed on satisfactory equipment and interpreted by qualified physicians.


CardiacSite model

CardiacSite acts as an imaging network that promotes quality and patient safety through facility ranking. Assessment is administered as an online survey with onsite and desktop audits to verify compliance. Successful completion of the assessment results in certification – see our directory to find a certified facility.


Standards and benchmarking

National standards and benchmarking are established through long-term partnerships with providers, public policymakers, regulators, academic institutions, and other key stakeholders. Health plans also receive guidance and peer-review from CardiacSite’s Advisory and Standards Committee.


Online Assessment

CardiacSite assessment consists of four online modules.

Facility Information includes facility standards and demographics including location and contact information.

Radiology Systems and Equipment covers basic information about each imaging device/system used at the facility.

Professional Qualifications asks about equipment operators, support staff, and the physicians who interpret the results; each facility must submit the expiration date for some licenses, as well as Organization NPI number and the Medical Director.

Quality and Patient Safety includes questions about the recommended safety and quality measures that all providers must meet.


Onsite and desktop audits validate the integrity of CardiacSite certification. They help check the accuracy of reported information and ensure the highest standards are delivered. Audits also enable facilities to receive expert guidance in corrective action (as needed) and continuous improvement in radiation safety, quality, clinical practices, and imaging protocols.


HealthHelp reviews completed assessments, certifying those meeting CardiacSite quality and safety standards. Facilities that don’t receive certification can improve and reapply within 90 days. Imaging providers must update and re-submit the online assessment prior to expiration, ensuring equipment is functioning properly and technologies are up-to-date with all appropriate licenses.
