On June 24 2009, The Chester County Hospital's Neurodiagnostic Lab received word that it has been accredited by the EEG Laboratory Accreditation Board of ABRET. The Lab is just one of four labs accredited in the state of Pennsylvania, and one of 10 in the tri-state area. ABRET is the national credentialing board for Electroencephalographic Technologists, Evoked Potential Technologists, Long Term Monitoring Technologists, and Neurophysiologic Intraoperative Monitoring Technologists. It has been focused on the competency and evaluation of technologists serving the neurology community and patients for more than 40 years.
ABRET's Lab Accreditation process evaluates technical standards, the quality of the laboratory's output and lab management issues. Accreditation by ABRET with independent, objective verification of quality shows proof that the lab can produce EEGs interpretable by competent physicians anywhere; identifies the lab's status to colleagues and patients; enhances the credibility for its data; distinguishes its characteristics from the competition; and heightens the laboratory's reputation for integrity. ABRET credentials are internationally recognized
and endorsed by the American Clinical Neurophysiology Society (ACNS) and the American Society of Electroneurodiagnostic Technologists (ASET).
