CFHC Echocardiology Laboratory Earns Reaccredition by the IAC!
Central Florida Heart Center is pleased to announce that it has achieved successful re-accreditation in Adult Echocardiography (ICAEL) by the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission.
There are many factors that contribute to an accurate diagnosis based on echocardiography. The training and experience of the sonographer performing the procedure, the type of equipment used and the quality assessment metrics each facility is required to measure, all contribute to positive patient outcomes. Re-accreditation means that CFHC has undergone a thorough review of its operational and technical components by a panel of experts. ICAEL grants accreditation only to those facilities that are found to be providing quality patient care, in compliance with national standards through a comprehensive application process including detailed case study review.
Accreditation is a “seal of approval” that patients can rely on as an indication that the facility has been carefully critiqued on all aspects of its operations considered relevant by medical experts in the field of Echocardiography.
Patients should remain vigilant in making sure that their Echocardiography procedures are performed only by accredited laboratories. CFHC remains committed to providing unsurpassed cardiology care to our patients. Our accreditation in both Adult Echocardiography and Nuclear Cardiology is just one more reason you should trust your healthcare to the physicians of CFHC.
