THE IMPORTANCE OF ACCREDITATION
Accreditation from various agencies is not only vital to the success of any healthcare organization, but essential to licensure and compliance in some cases. Two of the most important organizations that we deal with are NCQA and URAC. NCQA is the National Committee for Quality Assurance and is responsible for evaluating preferred provider organizations on a standardized set of measures which looks at things such as clinical measures and patient experience ratings to provide a comparable ranking for the organization. URAC stands for Utilization Review Accreditation Commission. URAC is the largest accrediting body for healthcare and has accreditation programs which operate in every state. In addition some states also recognize URAC accreditation meaning that the accreditation can be used to meet state regulatory requirements instead of reporting to the state. Some states currently require URAC accreditation in order for an organization to conduct business.
