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 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.
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.
