Published Saturday, December 1, 2012

Shreveport, LA-  Bicknell EMG of Shreveport has received Electrodiagnostic Laboratory Accreditation
with Exemplary Status from the American Association of Neuromuscular & Electrodiagnostic Medicine
(AANEM).  Dr. J. Eric Bicknell, certified by the American Board of Electrodiagnostic Medicine (ABEM), is
the laboratory’s medical director.

“This prestigious accreditation shows how serious we are about this important element of patient
care,” explained Dr. J. Eric Bicknell.  “Our facility is the first accredited laboratory in Northwest
Louisiana.”

The AANEM established laboratory accreditation criteria for Electrodiagnostic (EDX) laboratories to
insure patients receive quality medical care in a safe environment.  Laboratory accreditation provides
patients, referral sources, and payers with a credible measure to differentiate the laboratory’s quality
of care.  The accreditation standards evaluate the diagnostic services and clinical operations essential
to providing quality patient care, which include:

  • Clinical staff qualifications and continuing education
  • Physical facilities
  • EDX equipment
  • Protocols for performing EDX studies
  • Patient reports
  • Policies for ensuring the health and safety of every patient

Exemplary Status is the highest level of accreditation an EDX laboratory can achieve under the AANEM
Accreditation Program.  To be awarded Accreditation with Exemplary Status, physicians performing
studies in the laboratory must:

  • Have completed a neurology or physical medicine and rehabilitation residency program; and  
  • Have completed a minimum of three months of training in EDX medicine as part of a residency
  • or fellowship program; and
  • Be certified by the American Board of Electrodiagnostic Medicine (ABEM), or by the American

AANEM is a nonprofit membership association dedicated to the advancement of neuromuscular,
musculoskeletal, and Electrodiagnostic medicine.  For more information about AANEM, or to learn
