Tabba Heart Institute becomes the FIRST AND ONLY HOSPITAL IN PAKISTAN to Join Efforts to Improve Cardiac Care in Pakistan by participating in New American College of Cardiology quality improvement program that provides best practice tools to help improve patient outcomes
Tabba Heart Institute is taking part in the American College of Cardiology’s (ACC’s) quality improvement program designed to help facilities provide high quality patient care and improved outcomes for their heart patients.
The ACC’s new Quality Improvement for Tabba Heart Institute gives its personnel access to an array of tools and programs that help physicians, nurses and other members of the cardiac care team make decisions with their patients that are based on best practices and the latest scientific research.
Tabba Heart Institute has participated in the ACC’s National Cardiovascular Data Registry (NCDR®) for over a year now. This gathers data and provides actionable performance feedback to physicians and facilities. The new program takes this commitment to quality to the next level by ensuring that Tabba Heart Institute’s cardiac care team has access to additional quality improvement initiatives and tools, including:
- Participation in all ACC quality initiatives —including Hospital to Home (H2H), Surviving MI, and the Door to Balloon (D2B) Alliance—that disseminate evidence-based strategies and promote the sharing of best practices with the goal of closing known gaps in care.
- Proven quality improvement tools that can be used individually or collectively to ensure quality, appropriate care, and improve patient outcomes.
- Membership in a nationwide and international community that shares a commitment to improving quality and provides opportunities for online collaboration.
“Tabba Heart Institute continues to demonstrate its commitment to patients by ensuring that the entire cardiac care team is well informed and has access to the best information and decision-support tools available,” said ACC President John G. Harold, MD, MACC.
