URAC, the leading international digital health accrediting body, recently awarded GluCare Integrated Diabetes Center in Dubai, UAE full accreditation in Remote Patient Monitoring for its Digital Therapeutics Program. GluCare partnered with URAC to become the first provider outside the United States to be accredited in Remote Patient Monitoring. GluCare’s physicians are specially trained in using artificial intelligence-enhanced technology to treat and monitor patients with diabetes and assist them in managing their condition at the time they need them most, both remotely and in-clinic.
URAC’s Remote Patient Monitoring Accreditation verifies that an organization has outstanding patient care over time in place, supported by risk-mitigation places and focused on the safety and security of patient information.
“We are pleased to be the first international organization to earn URAC accreditation in remote patient monitoring,” Dr. Ihsan Almarzooqi, Co-founder and Managing Director of GluCare. “This accreditation shows that a third party has verified the work we’ve been doing to serve patients continually over time and when they need us the most.”
“By earning Remote Patient Monitoring Accreditation from URAC, GluCare operates on the forefront of health care delivery,” said URAC President and CEO Shawn Griffin, M.D. “Meeting URAC’s RPM standards demonstrates that GluCare leverages technologies to advance high quality care that promotes clinical best practices, consumer protections and care continuity among patients and providers.”
