We support you every step of the way
The accreditation process can seem to be overwhelming, but don't worry. We're here to support you each step of the way.
Behind the URAC Gold Star is a health care organization committed to quality. While seeking accreditation is voluntary and shows a commitment to ensuring a safe and effective environment for those you serve, it also brings significant benefits to your organization and many states and payers require you to be accredited to operate.
Accreditation and or certification are important accomplishments to achieve and we are here to help your organization throughout the entire process. URAC offers plenty of on-going support, after your initial interactions with our Business Development Executives, who will help you determine if your organization is eligible and get you started. You will be assigned a Client Relation Manager to guide you through the process and to look after you through the entire lifespan of your accreditation.
Our accreditation process creates a framework for continuous improvement,and is purposely designed to be collaborative. It facilitates learning and continuous quality improvement in your organization. While we set the standards, we don't dictate how they are achieved. This flexibility supports innovation by your team. All URAC health care accreditations are independently validated ensuring the highest standards of care.
URAC’s accreditation process can take as little as six months or less. It really depends on how readily available you have your documentation.
