Accreditation for Cardiovascular Excellence (ACE) E3: More Than Peer Review Videos Continue This Week
Date:8/27/2013

Washington, DC (PRWEB) August 27, 2013

The latest round of Accreditation for Cardiovascular Excellence (ACE) E3: More Than Peer Review video series, taped during the 2013 Society for Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions (SCAI) Scientific Sessions in Orlando, FL, will be released this week with Peter C. Block, MD, FSCAI, Professor of Medicine and Cardiology, Emory University, Atlanta, GA and Charles E. Chambers, MD, FSCAI, Penn State Hershey Medical Center, Hershey, PA emphasizing the importance of expert, external review.

Noting that protection for the patient, hospital and physician is the purpose of peer review, Dr. Block stated that the process improves documentation and “that documentation relates to better patient care including improving physician thought processes, clarifying patient issues and clearly documenting the outcomes.”

“ACE offers the option for external peer review providing opportunities to look at the cardiac catheterization laboratory (CCL) for specific issues that need to be addressed,” said Dr. Chambers. E3: More than Peer Review engages cardiologists to help identify areas for improvement and to evaluate appropriate use. ACE clients have reported that E3: More than Peer Review is the best insurance policy to purchase for their services.

Next week the ACE video series features Peer Review: A Physician's Perspective with Joseph D. Babb, MD, FSCAI, East Carolina Heart Institute.
