REWIND: DHS Group Selected as URAC-Approved Vendor
“Change is happening across the healthcare delivery system,” URAC, formerly the Utilization Review Accreditation Commission, says on their website. “[We are] helping organizations transform by developing national standards to improve quality, protect consumers and improve health outcomes.”
URAC accreditation “is recognized as a key differentiator and independent validation of quality,” and is often a requirement when it comes to joining a specific network. In order to maintain or gain URAC accreditation, participating companies must undergo an annual Measure and Data Validation review by a URAC-approved third-party vendor.
With DHS Group’s vast history of being at the forefront of quality improvement, including being one of the first to offer HEDIS Compliance audits, the decision to apply as a URAC-approved validation vendor was an easy one.
