Lifeline Vascular Access is the leading provider of vascular access management services in the United States. With its nationwide network of almost 60 managed access centers in 21 states and Puerto Rico, Lifeline Vascular Access is focused on specialized outpatient care of hemodialysis patients.
Lifeline Vascular Access was created in 1999 and has received the Gold Seal of Approval™ from the Joint Commission, which is recognized nationwide as a symbol of quality that reflects an organization’s commitment to meeting high healthcare performance standards.
According to Mr. David Delp, Lifeline’s IT Director, iQ-VIEW® is the viewer of choice in most of Lifeline’s access centers:
“Our partnering nephrologists and interventionalists are performing procedures which necessitate doing studies on the dialysis access sites for hemodialysis patients. We are utilizing both Philips and GE C-Arms as wells as SonoSite ultrasound machines. We are running DICOM servers to store and manage images and we are using iQ-VIEW® to view them. We currently have about 60 facilities around the country and have iQ-VIEW® installed in all but a few of them, as the viewer that our partnering physicians utilize.”
