Categories: [Live Webcast]

The January 1, 2018 release of URAC’s Core Standards v4,0 represents a major revision to the standards, which will roll out across accreditation programs throughout the year. (See the rollout schedule). All organizations that will undergo reaccreditation for an accreditation program that requires the Core standards, as well as new applicants, are encouraged to attend this workshop.

Core Standards are basic standards with which most URAC-accredited entities must comply. These standards address several key organizational management functions that are important for any health care organization. The Core standards provide the basic structures and processes any organization must have to maintain a level of quality expected in a URAC-accredited organization. The four Focus Areas to be addressed are:

  • Risk Management
  • Consumer Protection and Empowerment
  • Operations and Infrastructure
  • Performance Management and Improvement

URAC uses the Core Standards in two distinct ways. First, the Core standards serve as a common foundation for all of URAC’s accreditation programs. This means that all companies accredited under programs that include Core will need to meet the basic requirements of the Core standards, as well as the function-specific requirements for the particular accreditation program. Secondly, the Core accreditation is available to companies that are otherwise not eligible for one of URAC’s other accreditation programs.

This workshop includes:

  • URAC Overview
  • Scoring Methodology
  • Electronic data submission process
  • Core Accreditation Standards v4.0

Program Objectives: 

  • Understand the accreditation standards
  • Learn what is needed to meet the intent of the standards
  • Determine the documentation that is needed to submit with the application

Who Should Attend:
Designed to provide detailed information about URAC’s accreditation process and the Core standards, this focused training session is ideal for those considering URAC accreditation, first-time applicants, and all organizations that will undergo reaccreditation in a program that requires the Core standards.

This registration is for the Core Accreditation Standards v4.0 Workshop only. You must register separately for the Case Management or the Health Utilization Management Accreditation Standards workshops.

Today, URAC is the undisputed leader in Utilization Management Accreditation and Certification. 

As managed care has grown, it has become more prevalent in the workers’ compensation setting.

LIVE WEBCAST: URAC Case Management Accreditation v6.0 Workshop

Categories: [Live Webcast]

URAC’s Case Management Accreditation Standards v6.0, which releases January 2018, is the first major revision to these standards in four years. Given the importance of case management as a tool for improving outcomes for patient populations, URAC decided to revisit the accreditation program. Changes emphasize the use of evidence-based guidelines and case management standards of practice designed to reduce the variation in services that can lead to poor outcomes. The revision also highlights performance metrics applicable to all programs – regardless of setting. These metrics are designed to demonstrate the connection between case management services and positive health outcomes, which supports the growing trend towards value-based reimbursement.

Case management allows health care organizations to better serve patients’ needs in a more dynamic way by coordinating care across the continuum of health care needs and settings. URAC’s Case Management Standards cover both health and workers’ compensation services. URAC specifically designed the Case Management Standards for organizations that provide telephonic or on-site case management services in conjunction with a privately or publicly funded benefits program. 

This workshop does not include the Core standards.  

This workshop includes:

  • Scoring Methodology
  • Case Management Accreditation Standards

Program Objectives:
