COMMENT PERIOD NOW CLOSED
In keeping with the IAC’s continued commitment to give our applicant facilities a voice in the accreditation process, we are pleased to announce the opportunity to comment on proposed additions to the IAC Standards and Guidelines for Adult Echocardiography Accreditation.
The additions are centered around the upcoming availability of a new testing area, Adult Congenital Transthoracic Echocardiography. These additions are applicable to facilities wishing to apply for Adult Congenital Transthoracic Echocardiography only. IAC Pediatric Echocardiography accredited facilities are encouraged to comment; however, these additions are to be included in the Adult Echocardiography Standards only.
The Standards are reviewed periodically by the IAC Echocardiography Board of Directors and revised as needed. As a component to the accreditation process, proposed Standards that have been approved by the Board of Directors are then posted to the IAC website for a public comment period. These proposed Standards include changes to the current Standards and/or the addition of new Standards.
To Submit a Comment on Proposed Standards:
- Visit the IAC comment period website at intersocietal.org/comment-period;
- Select the proposed Adult Echocardiography Standard you wish to comment on;
- A window will expand with the description of the existing Standard and the proposed change on the left;
- On the right, fill in your name and comment in the boxes provided;
- Hit Submit.
At the close of the comment period, the IAC Echocardiography Board of Directors will review all submitted comments, consider modifications as needed and vote for final approval of the Standards.
The new Standards will be posted to the IAC Echocardiography website and available for download at intersocietal.org/programs/echocardiography/standards.
