Northside recognized as a high quality provider by IAC

Posted on: March 01, 2020


The Northside Hospital health care system has been recognized by the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission (IAC) for its commitment to achieving voluntary IAC accreditation across all of its diagnostic imaging and cardiovascular facilities. 

The IAC is a nonprofit organization in operation to evaluate and accredit facilities that provide diagnostic imaging and procedure-based modalities, ensuring that the facility meets quality benchmarks based on published clinical guidelines, best practices and outcomes. 

“Our work to standardize policies, procedures, processes and quality monitoring across the system ensures we are providing high quality care at all of our locations,” said Patricia Tyson, director of cardiovascular services, Northside Hospital. “Whether it’s an office practice setting or hospital location, each patient receives the exact same quality care.” 

Northside facilities have received multiple IAC accreditations including echocardiography, nuclear cardiology and vascular testing. 

IAC accreditation is a “seal of approval” that indicates Northside has undergone a thorough review of its operational and technical components by a panel of experts. The IAC grants accreditation only to those facilities that are found to provide quality patient care, in compliance with national standards through a comprehensive application process including detailed case study review.
