CCN's Echocardiography Quality Improvement (EQI) Program

Standards for Provision of Echocardiography in Ontario ("the Standards") were developed by the Cardiac Care Network of Ontario in 2012 and updated in 2015. The purpose of the Standards document is to:

  1. Update the guidelines regarding the provision of echocardiography services in Canada developed by the Canadian Society of Echocardiography and the Canadian Cardiovascular Society (2005), taking into account the advances in technology and clinical applications that have been available since 2005; and
  2. Describe a process that ensures echocardiography laboratories in Ontario achieve the Standards.

EQI Process

The CCN Echocardiography Quality Improvement (EQI) Program measures facilities against the Standards in an effort to improve the quality of echocardiography services across Ontario.
