The American College of Cardiology and American Heart Association today announced they will offer co-branded accreditation services for cardiac care beginning in 2017. “The ACC and the AHA have worked together for more than 30 years to develop cardiovascular clinical guidelines and translate those guidelines into programs and services that shape clinical care and improve patient outcomes,” said ACC CEO Shal Jacobovitz. “Through this collaboration we can increase the scope and positive impact of accreditation on cardiovascular patient care.”
