Inteleos’ Statement on Access to Quality Healthcare
At Inteleos we believe all women deserve access to quality health care from certified ultrasound professionals.
As a certification organization, Inteleos asserts that medical professionals who perform ultrasound should be able to demonstrate their knowledge, skills and abilities through standardized, rigorous assessments. Certification from an independent, third-party organization should be required to ensure best practices in quality patient care. This expectation of quality care should extend to all people in all health care settings.
We encourage patients to advocate for quality care by confirming that the ultrasound professional who will perform their sonogram is appropriately certified for their health and safety.
The American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonography® (ARDMS), founded in 1975, administers examinations and awards credentials in the areas of medical ultrasound. With over 102,000 certified professionals worldwide, ARDMS is considered the global standard of excellence in sonography.
The Alliance for Physician Certification & Advancement™ (APCA™), established in 2016, exclusively serves a community of over 17,000 physicians in support of their enduring commitment to continual learning and providing high-quality and compassionate patient care through certification.
The Point-of-Care Ultrasound (POCUS) Certification Academy™ exists to provide clinicians the opportunity to collaborate in the shared mission of improving global health and setting the standards of excellence in POCUS.
