URAC Accreditation Programs

We purposely designed our accreditation approach to be collaborative with our clients. This process facilitates learning and continuous quality improvement in your organization. While we set the standards, we don't dictate how they are achieved because we believe health care leaders know their own businesses well enough to be able to manage organizational improvements.

This built-in flexibility encourages and supports innovative thinking by your team. Every URAC accreditation and certification program is independently validated to help you ensure the highest standards of care.
