What Is Health Care Accreditation?
Health care accreditation is a process where an external, independent body such as URAC evaluates how well a health care organization meets standards. This process assesses and improves the quality, efficiency and effectiveness of the care delivered by a a health care organization.
In preparation for accreditation, health care organizations typically do a full-scale review of their procedures, practices and general processes to evaluate how well they adhere to accreditation standards and identify any gaps in compliance. If the health care organization’s review team finds any area that fails to meet those standards, they can implement changes that ensure they meet URAC’s standards.
Benefits of Health Care Accreditation
Health care accreditation benefits patients and health care organizations across the spectrum of service. Health care facilities bolster their reputation, streamline their health care delivery process and gain several practical benefits. Additionally, accreditation helps to improve care for patients.
