Lifeline Vascular Access provides services that streamline the management and delivery of care to patients. We achieve this by bringing together all the pieces essential to a freestanding outpatient vascular center.
The Quality, Clinical Education and Training Team (QCET) is responsible for supporting the clinical needs of our centers and maintaining a compliant and safe environment for patient care. They are accountable for all clinical policies and procedures as well as developing and delivering all clinical training. They regularly conduct mock surveys in order to maintain a high level of readiness for Joint Commission compliance within our network of centers.
The PACE Team (Patient Advocacy and Community Education) is comprised of Nurse Education and Outreach Specialists. PACE nurses are responsible for developing educational programs on a variety of vascular access related-topics centered on patient-focused care. It is from these targeted outreach efforts to dialysis patients, family members, clinical caregivers, corporate providers and industry partners that the PACE Team derives its compelling purpose: Helping dialysis patients get the vascular access care that they need.
PAD Round Table
Recognizing that developing new market growth to touch more lives and treat more conditions requires a high level of coordination and expertise, Lifeline Vascular Access established the PAD Round Table to help facilitate collaboration and support among center managers. Facilities considering adding procedures for the treatment of PAD to their clinical offerings are able to meet bimonthly with a cross-functional team of experienced managers and other Lifeline personnel to learn best demonstrated practices for program implementation. Additionally, various resources collaborate to discuss outcomes performance and evaluate new products, tools and technologies.
