August 5, 2015 – Miller Vein has been granted a three-year term of reaccreditation in Vascular Testing in the areas of Peripheral Venous Testing by the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission (IAC). Miller Vein has proudly remained an accredited vein clinic since 2012.
Health care organizations are held to high levels of accountability. Patients should remain cautious in making sure that their procedures are performed within accredited facilities, because for many facilities it remains a voluntary process. The IAC is widely respected within the medical community and ensures patients receive quality care.
Accreditation by the IAC means that Miller Vein 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 be providing quality patient care, in compliance with national standards through a comprehensive application process including detailed case study review. Through the accreditation process, facilities assess every aspect of daily operation and its impact on the quality of health care provided to patients.
IAC accreditation is a “seal of approval” that patients can rely on as an indication that the facility has been carefully critiqued on all aspects of its operations considered relevant by medical experts in the field of Vascular Testing. When scheduled for a Vascular Testing procedure, patients are encouraged to inquire as to the accreditation status of the facility where their examination will be performed and can learn more by visiting www.intersocietal.org/vascular/main/patients.htm
