FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
September 28, 2018. The URAC Accreditation Committee met on September 25, 2018 and reviewed the CompAlliance application for re-accreditation for the Case Management Version 5.1 Program. The Accreditation Committee voted to grant CompAlliance FULL Accreditation pursuant to the Case Management, Version 5.1 Program. This award is effective from December 1, 2018 to December 1, 2021. We received our notification on Friday, September 28, 2018. In the notification, URAC documented:
“Your organization is commended for its commitment to promoting quality health services by obtaining URAC accreditation. Thank you for your cooperation throughout the accreditation process and for choosing URAC as your accrediting organization.”
CompAlliance remains a supporter of the need for URAC accreditation for companies performing Case Management in the Workers' Compensation arena. URAC accreditation ensures standards of practice, current and updated Case Management practices, and evidence-based approaches are integrated into a company's policies and procedures. It provides the tools and guidance to implement and integrate these initiatives into the Case Management Product.
While we at CompAlliance truly believe this re-accreditation verified the excellence with which we continued to perform Case Management, it also served a very useful purpose at the same time. It ensured we as a company review all policies, procedures, etc. with a very critical eye, and ensured the services we perform are based on current best practices.
URAC Accreditation is a Consumer Based Accreditation
When working within the workers’ compensation industry we can point to the fact that this is a consumer-based accreditation, and as such our goal is to always work towards mutually beneficial approaches to facilitation of evidence-based care for the injured worker, the employer and the provider of benefits, with the goal of coordinating an early and medically appropriate return to work and function.
