Quality Improvement Program

Each facility must have a Quality Improvement (QI) Program and conduct internal quality assessment and improvement at regular intervals that are appropriate for the facility’s stated purpose and include carotid artery stenting.

All relevant personnel assessed in the QI Program must participate in periodic facility meetings to review findings and determine actions for improvement of performance. At a minimum, these meetings must occur at least every six months.

At the time of online submission, facilities are required to submit documentation of their QI Program. For complete details on what is to be submitted as part of the required QI Program, please refer to the IAC Standards for Carotid Stenting Accreditation (Section C: Quality Improvement).
