Core Standards are basic standards with which all URAC-accredited entities must comply. These standards address several key organizational management functions that are important for any health care organization. The Core Standards provide the basic structures and process any organization must have to maintain a level of quality expected in a URAC-accredited organization.

URAC uses the Core Standards in two distinct ways. First, the Core Standards serve as a common foundation for most of URAC’s accreditation programs. This means that companies accredited under programs that include Core will need to meet the basic requirements of the Core Standards, as well as the function-specific requirements for a particular accreditation program. For example, a UM-accredited company will need to meet the Core Standards and the UM Standards. The second way is a stand-alone product for those companies that are not able or eligible to apply under a full accreditation product.

This workshop includes:
  • URAC Overview and AccreditNet Process
  • Core Standards
Program Objectives:
  • Understand the accreditation standards
  • Identify what is needed to meet the intent of the standards
  • Determine the documentation that is needed to submit with the application
