Welcome to URAC International MENA Region
URAC has over 30 years of health care accreditation experience that can help your organization demonstrate a commitment to quality patient care and drive continuous improvement that can provide better outcomes.
A health care revolution is emerging in the Middle East, North Africa (MENA) region of Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Oman, Qatar, United Arab Emirates, Jordan, Kuwait and Israel; a new generation is distinguishing themselves with innovation and engagement in bringing the very best health care to their world. URAC International is engaging with these thought leaders and their organizations helping to lead the way for this health care transformation.
URAC is a member of the International Society for Telemedicine and eHealth (ISfTeH) and is an independent, nonprofit accreditation entity, whose mission it is to advance health care quality through leadership, accreditation, measurement and innovation. Founded in 1990 as a third-party health care quality validator, URAC brings a wealth of telehealth accreditation experience to the MENA region.
We look forward to working with you.
Telehealth or Telemedicine programs had already begun gaining momentum, but with COVID-19, the practice of delivering medical care virtually has escalated from infrequent possibility to daily reality. In this rapidly changing field, telehealth service providers who achieve URAC accreditation are at the forefront of the sea-change, prepared to meet the evolving challenges and benefit from coming opportunities.
URAC has over 30 years accreditation experience and we are the first to offer independent oversight of telehealth programs in the United States. Our Telehealth Accreditation Program (TAP) offers providers much more than validation of high performance by an independent third party. URAC delivers a flexible framework that readies your organization to succeed on this new frontier.
The use of telehealth has been shown to allow for better long-term care management and patient satisfaction; it also offers a new means to locate health information and communicate with practitioners (e.g., via email and interactive chats or video conferences), thereby increasing convenience for the patient and and provider.
Telehealth is everywhere in health care today, whether meeting consumer demand or due to emergency medical necessity. Simply put, URAC’s TAP accreditation readies your organization to meet those demands and exceed industry standards.
In an effort to meet authorities and regulations of the region, URAC's Accreditation programs are robust and have sustainable accreditation standards with education-based compliance and quality solutions. URAC Telehealth Accreditation defines excellence in telehealth. Now is the time to act.
