Invasive Cardiac Services Advisory Committee (ICSAC)

Information about our Invasive Cardiac Services Advisory Committee.

Our committee considers topics around the safe and effective provision of cardiac services. Our primary concern is patient safety. We make decisions, through consensus, on how to prioritize good outcomes and high quality care over time. Our goal is to develop evidence-based recommendations that benefit the system as a whole.

We address the following topics:

  • Developing a model for oversight/monitoring of facilities performing Percutaneous Coronary Interventions (PCI)
  • Expansion of PCI to other facilities
  • Volume minimums for procedures
