AHA to host hospital cardiovascular accreditation services
The goal of this new collaboration is to make even more improvements related to patient outcomes and cardiovascular care throughout the U.S.
“The ACC and the AHA have worked together for more than 30 years to develop cardiovascular clinical guidelines and translate those guidelines into programs and services that shape clinical care and improve patient outcomes,” ACC CEO Shal Jacobovitz said. “Through this collaboration, we can increase the scope and positive impact of accreditation on cardiovascular patient care.”
Beginning in early 2017, all U.S. hospitals can take a suite of co-branded accreditation services to educate people about all variables involved in cardiac care, such as cardiac catheterization, chest pain, heart failure and atrial fibrillation.
“Bringing together the collective resources and expertise of our two organizations, we have a unique opportunity to further accelerate the improvement of cardiovascular care for all Americans,” Nancy Brown, CEO of the AHA, said. “This collaboration builds upon our shared commitment to transform health care and help people live healthier lives free of cardiovascular diseases.”
