Quality assessment and improvement in interventional cardiology: A position statement of the society of cardiovascular angiography and interventions, Part II: Public reporting and risk adjustment

Academic Article


  • In this two-part Position Statement, SCAI supports the fundamental position that interventional cardiologists must actively participate and help establish the standards of quality in PCI delivery. Practitioners of interventional cardiology should lead in the definition of quality, in collaboration with other stakeholders. Furthermore, the principles outlined in this Statement should be employed both within each institution performing interventional procedures as well as by outside agencies, which we believe are the best means of assessing quality and evaluating the structure, processes, and outcomes of PCI care.
