Gold stars on a black background

Join Bonnie Zickgraf, integrated services manager and former accreditation reviewer at URAC, for this two-hour webinar to get a detailed review of the standards and review process for URAC’s Core v.30 Accreditation Program.

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.

The Core Standards serve as the common foundation for all of URAC’s accreditation programs. Organizations must meet the Core standards and the function-specific requirements to be URAC-accredited.

Note: This webinar does not cover the details of the URAC accreditation process. This is covered in a separate webinar and at the in-person workshops.

In this webinar, you will discover:

  • The basic components of URAC’s standards and what is needed to meet their intent
  • The documentation needed to submit a complete application for desktop review
  • Validation Review requirements and activities used by URAC’s review staff
  • The scoring methodology of the standards and how reviewers apply them
  • How to perform a gap analysis between your current policies and procedures and URAC standards to discover areas for improvement
  • Helpful educational and support resources available to the applicant during the accreditation process
  • And more
