URAC, the nation’s leading health care accreditation and the undisputed leader in telehealth accreditation, announced today that WorldClinic successfully achieved URAC Telehealth Accreditation, solidifying the organization’s commitment to the highest quality and outcomes in virtual health care.
“By earning Telehealth Accreditation from URAC, WorldClinic proves that it operates on the forefront of health care delivery,” said Jeffrey Carr, URAC’s Vice President of Business Development. “Meeting URAC’s telehealth standards means WorldClinic provides more than a platform for transaction-based appointments. It demonstrates that WorldClinic leverages technologies to advance high-quality care that promotes clinical best practices, consumer protections and care continuity among patients and providers.”
“As telehealth continues to grow, WorldClinic distinguishes itself as an established, accredited organization committed to improving the health and well-being of the people it serves,” continued Carr.
“As the first private medical practice built entirely around using telemedicine, and not an office visit to care for our patients, our URAC accreditation is a testament to the robustness, security, and high quality of our care model. It is a key milestone in our development as both practitioners and pioneers in this field.” said Daniel Carlin MD, CEO and Founder of WorldClinic.
