Bidding for the VA’s Community Care Network Contract: How URAC Accreditation Helps
Friday, February 3, 2017 · 1-2:30 pm ET

The recent federal contract opportunity with the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to manage its Community Care Network (CCN) represents a contract with a potential value of up to $25 billion.  Achieving healthcare accreditation prior to starting the contracted work is a mandatory requirement.

There’s more to it than simply holding an accreditation. Those bidders who are successful will be able to demonstrate an ability to deliver high-quality care via a network of providers in a reliable fashion that meets the diverse needs of our nation’s veterans. Those organizations that are URAC-accredited are  best positioned to meet this challenge and deliver the quality of care our veterans deserve. This is the foundation on which URAC’s accreditation programs are built – to ensure organizations meet national best practice standards, while meeting the needs of the local population.

Join URAC President and CEO, Kylanne Green, and Director of Government Relations, Aaron Turner-Phifer, for a 90-minute FREE webinar on Friday, February 3, 2017, 1-2:30 p.m. ET, that gives you an overview of the VA’s RFP requirements and helps you understand the role of accreditation.  Discover:

  • Why accreditation is important to the VA for its Community Care Network
  • Accreditation requirements of the RFP
  • How URAC accreditation positions your organization to deliver quality care
  • The additional criteria that your organization will be scored on, and how accreditation in these areas may strengthen your position
  • How to maximize your URAC accreditation to align with the goals of the VA’s Community Care Network

The 90-minute webinar will include a Q/A session. Don’t miss this great opportunity to get valuable insights and perspectives from URAC on this important VA initiative.
