SCAI Announces National Quality Program to Improve Cardiovascular Patient Care
Date:5/5/2011

BALTIMORE, May 5, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Today at the Society for Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions (SCAI) 2011 Scientific Sessions, SCAI announced its national quality improvement program to measure and improve quality in the cath lab for better patient care.

Building on its legacy of using evidence to guide new ways to advance care and improve outcomes, SCAI is launching its national quality program with its signature "Quality Improvement Toolkit" to ensure facilities and providers have the tools necessary to deliver consistent quality care in cath labs as well as the elements requisite for an accredited cardiac catheterization lab.  SCAI's national quality program proactively addresses issues related to appropriateness of care and underscores SCAI's commitment to continuous quality improvement and performance measurement. To that end, SCAI supports five principles in its quality initiative:

  • CQI in the Cath Lab: The new Quality Improvement Toolkit (SCAI-QIT) to improve quality of care for cardiovascular patients will be implemented in hospital cath labs throughout the United States. SCAI has set a goal to engage 125 hospitals in using the SCAI-QIT by December 2011.
  • Accreditation of Cath Labs: Accreditation of Cardiovascular Excellence (ACE) program to accredit cath labs, requiring peer-review of a variety of procedures, including cardiac catheterization, carotid stenting, angiography and coronary artery stenting.
  • Third-Party Peer Review: To further drive CQI in the cath lab, SCAI has released a white paper, "The Quality Imperative: Lessons from the Cath Lab." In it, SCAI calls for uniform use of "cath lab conferences" in which random cases are discussed in open forums by physician peers.
  • Measurement and Public Reporting
