What is an EDX accredited lab?
AANEM uses a process that identifies and acknowledges electrodiagnostic (EDX) labs for achieving and maintaining the highest level of quality, performance, and integrity based on professional standards developed by AANEM. Accreditation provides labs with a structured mechanism to assess, evaluate, and improve the quality of care.
What is evaluated?
