Premier Health Facilities Earn Adult Transthoracic Echocardiography Accreditation

Premier Pulse     December 2021

Three Premier Health facilities have achieved accreditation by the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission (IAC) in Echocardiography in the area of adult transthoracic.

Miami Valley Hospital in Dayton, Miami Valley Hospital South in Centerville, and Premier Cardiovascular Institute in Beavercreek were recently granted a three-year term of accreditation by the IAC.

Echocardiography is used to assess different areas of the heart and can detect heart disease or signs of serious cardiovascular conditions using high-frequency soundwaves.

Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States. According to the American Heart Association, more than 2,150 Americans die each day from cardiovascular disease, which amounts to about one every 40 seconds.

Accreditation by the IAC means that Miami Valley Hospital, Miami Valley Hospital South, and Premier Cardiovascular Institute in Beavercreek have undergone an intensive application and review process and are found to be in compliance with the published standards, thus demonstrating a commitment to quality patient care in echocardiography. 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.
