    Help SCAI Improve Quality of Care, One Cath Lab at a Time

    Join the Interventional Cardiology Community in Launching the SCAI Quality Improvement Toolkit (SCAI-QIT)

    SCAI is inviting you to join the interventional cardiology community in tackling continuous quality improvement (CQI) in the cardiac cath lab. SCAI's Quality Improvement Toolkit (SCAI-QIT) features several tools focused on:

    • Guidelines;
    • Peer review conferences;
    • Random case selection;
    • National database participation;
    • Pre-procedure checklists;
    • Data collection; and
    • Inventory management

    The beauty of SCAI-QIT is that it is flexible and can be customized for each user. Even better, you will lead the way at your own institution, using its practical tools to document your strengths, identify opportunities for improvement, and prepare for government-mandated "Pay-for-Quality" initiatives.



    The SCAI Quality Improvement Toolkit was originally developed with support from Daiichi Sankyo, Inc. and Lilly USA, LLC. This program is also supported by AstraZeneca. The Society gratefully acknowledges this support, while taking sole responsibility for all content developed and disseminated through this effort.
