HOW BARBARA WORKS

Careful planning, coordination, and facilitation are fundamental to a successful application. It's why Barbara has been contracted to help small to large cardiology practices, community hospitals and academic medical centers successfully navigate the complexities of the Echocardiography Accreditation application process. By combining first-hand clinical experience, extensive knowledge of the accreditation process and a desire to help her clients, Barbara has had a 100% success rate creating effective solutions without unnecessary investment of her client's time and personnel.

Every accreditation project is unique. Barbara recognizes that accreditation assistance isn't one-size-fits-all... She customizes each project plan to the client's specific requirements. To do that, she takes special care to learn all about you, your laboratory, your needs and issues - and your expected outcomes. Working closely with you, Barbara makes herself readily available as she enables you to take advantage of your own strengths and resources.

"Barbara successfully supported our department in managing its hospital-based, multi-site application to ICAEL. Our mutual efforts paid off in timely approval. I would highly recommend Barbara's services to other facilities seeking Accreditation. Barbara is an organized, focused individual which was instrumental in keeping us on track during the labor intensive accreditation process."
