Lakewood, N.J. – Monmouth Medical Center, Southern Campus (MMCSC), an RWJBarnabas
Health facility, has earned re-accreditation by the Intersocietal Accreditation
Commission (IAC), a widely respected accreditation program, in the areas
of Adult Transthoracic and Adult Transesophegeal echocardiography. The
three-year term of accreditation demonstrates MMCSC’s ongoing commitment
to providing quality patient care in echocardiography.
One of the most commonly utilized diagnostic tests in cardiology, echocardiography
is used to assess the condition of the heart, heart valves and surrounding
blood vessels. It can help detect heart disease or signs of serious conditions
by providing physicians with real-time images of the heart structure and
information on its functioning.
Accreditation by the IAC validates that MMCSC has successfully completed
an intensive application and review process and was found to be in compliance
with IAC Standards and Guidelines for Echocardiography Accreditation.
Comprised of a detailed self-evaluation followed by a thorough review
by a panel of medical experts, the IAC accreditation process enables both
the critical operational and technical components of the applicant facility
to be assessed, including representative case studies and their corresponding
final reports. For patients, the accreditation serves as a “seal
of approval,” ensuring MMCSC’s consistent quality care and
dedication to continuous improvement.
