Accreditation is a process that can be time consuming, burdensome, and frustrating.  It requires numerous hours of preparation before the application can be completed and submitted. The Surgisys approach was created by technologists experienced in accreditation and is designed to relieve you and your staff of the labor burden and associated costs, reduce IT burden and costs, and the worry of not getting accredited.

Vascular accreditation from ICAVL involves the Organization section and up to five different sections: Extracranial Cerebrovascular, Intracranial Cerebrovascular, Peripheral Arterial, Peripheral Venous, and Visceral Vascular. 

We offer the following services:

1. Internet based software applications to track and manage patient care, view outcome reports, practice management reporting, and manage images to utilize as tools for accreditation
