Dr. Kristen L Biggs, MD of Los Alamos, recently received word that her Vein Center in Santa Fe has received the distinction of becoming an accredited vein center by the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission (IAC). She is the first vein center in the state to receive the accreditation, and one of three in the nation.
The IAC provides several medical accreditations, with the vein center accreditation being the newest to be offered.
The IAC describes its accreditations as “a ‘seal of approval’ that patients can count on” and requires a thorough examination of the facility, the doctors, employees and the quality of care. For more information on the IAC accreditation process, visit intersocietal.org/vein/main/patients.htm.
As soon as the accreditation was offered last October, Biggs began preparing her submission. She describes a lengthy and time-consuming process, where she had to detail everything from her office policies and procedures to equipment lists, and medical procedures. The mountains of paperwork are then submitted to the IAC where a panel of experts reviews the material. Her facility was scrutinized for quality, medical compliance and safety, and additional accreditations were required in order to complete the process. Her vascular testing center is also accredited by the IAC.
