The Power to Even the Playing Field

Whether you are creating a new Clinically Integrated Network (CIN) or strengthening an existing one, this URAC accreditation delivers long-term advantages. The most important benefit: your organization will have the credibility to be on equal footing as you navigate solutions with payers, providers and other stakeholders.

As the only program of its kind, URAC’s Clinically Integrated Network Accreditation provides immediate confirmation that an independent third-party has validated your organization’s best-in-class network operations and clinical practices.

Five Reasons for Clinical Integration Accreditation

  1. Competitive negotiation power as internal and external audiences recognize your demonstrated commitment to operational efficiency and patient care
  2. Antitrust peace-of-mind through alignment with Federal Trade Commission (FTC) guidelines that ensure compliance with complex federal and state regulations
  3. Better served patients as clinical partners are actively engaged in high functioning, clinically integrated practices
  4. More revenue through improved operational efficiencies, reduced legal and consulting fees and enhanced value-based contracting rates
  5. A roadmap for ongoing improvement to ensure the foundation laid for streamlined processes and systems evolves smoothly over time
