Join URAC Accreditation Reviewer Judy Kerr for this two-hour webinar to get a a detailed review of the standards and review process for URAC’s Case Management v.5.1 Accreditation Program and Transitions of Care Designation.

URAC accreditation requires that an organization demonstrate compliance with numerous standards that focus on quality and best practices.  With so many requirements, it can be hard to focus on the intent of the standards and organize what you need to do to meet them.

In this webinar, you will discover:

  • How URAC reviewers apply the scoring methodology of the standards;
  • The documentation needed to submit a complete application for desktop review;
  • Validation Review requirements and activities used by URAC’s review staff
  • The measures that are required for reporting
  • Which case management standards are not applicable to Worker’s Compensation
  • What is needed for the Transitions of Care standards
  • Helpful educational and support resources available to the applicant during the accreditation process
  • A crosswalk of changes from CM v5.0 to CM v5.1
  • Tips for selecting Quality Improvement Projects
  • And more

Plus, you’ll get a chance to ask questions during a live Q&A session.

Note: This webinar does not cover the Core Accreditation Standards or the URAC accreditation process.
