Enhancements to Online Accreditation
NEW FEATURES INCLUDE CASE STUDIES CHECK, ENHANCED PASSWORD RESET

In keeping with IAC’s commitment to continuously streamline the online accreditation process, the IAC is pleased to announce new enhancements available to applicant facilities:

Pre-submission Case Requirements Check

IAC is now offering a pre-submission case requirements check for applicant facilities (Vascular Testing, Echocardiography, Nuclear/PET, MRI, CT/Dental). At this time, this is an optional step that facilities may utilize prior to finalizing their application. The pre-submission case requirements check will be performed by IAC staff and was designed to rectify errors and inappropriate case study selection made by facility users prior to final application submission in an effort to provide a more efficient application submission process. To learn more about the process and how to access this new feature, visit intersocietal.org/iac/casecheck.htm.

Enhanced Password Reset Process

We are pleased to announce that IAC has also enhanced the process for resetting a password for Online Accreditation. By clicking the Forgot Your Password? link on the account login screen, then verifying account details, it is now easier to access your account if you have forgotten or lost your User ID or password.
