Telehealth accreditation acknowledges and certifies the quality telehealth services organizations provide through remote or virtual visits. Many people with critical health conditions may rely on telehealth services to receive the medical care they need without leaving home. When an organization has accreditation, stakeholders, patients and payers know their top-quality services follow specific standards. Telehealth accreditations hold remote care to the same standard as in-person health services, ensuring patients receive the best care wherever and however they choose to communicate with health care providers.
Additionally, when people know that a health organization is prepared for virtual care services, they feel more comfortable accessing health care without worrying about their location, familial situation, financial circumstances or transportation needs.

Remote Patient Monitoring Accreditation in Sharjah
In addition to our standard telehealth accreditation, URAC also offers remote patient monitoring (RPM) accreditation in Sharjah. RPM refers to health care providers communicating with patients at home or in remote locations to provide health care services. Organizations with an RPM program allow patients with more severe health conditions better access to health care through technology.
Although the U.S. Food and Drug Administration certifies RPM devices and several standards-setting bodies have developed security and related requirements, URAC’s Remote Patient Monitoring Accreditation Program is the first comprehensive set of standards created to assess many key aspects of an RPM program. When an organization earns an RPM accreditation, stakeholders, payers and patients understand their services are effective, secure and safe.
