    Peer review is a critical component of any comprehensive continuous quality improvement (CQI) effort.  Our angiographic and appropriateness review processes improve quality of care by providing constructive, objective feedback in a collaborative environment.  By reviewing angiographic images online, we are also able to minimize the time and expense required for review.

    ACE angiographic and appropriate-use reviews are conducted only by highly-qualified adjudicators who meet stringent requirements, including a minimum of 15 years in practice, at least 2,000 invasive/interventional procedures performed, and leadership experience in the CQI process. All angiographic reviews are done in a secure, HIPAA-compliant, online environment using ImageShare .

    By identifying individual operator strengths and weaknesses, the ACE review process helps facilities achieve the highest possible standard of performance.

    Types of ACE review:

    • Angiographic review (without clinical correlation)
      • Visual assessment, or
      • QCA done by an ACE-approved core lab
