Healthcare Solutions, the parent company of Procura Management, announced today Procura has been awarded Case Management Accreditation from URAC, a Washington, DC-based health care accrediting organization that establishes quality standards for the health care industry. URAC’s Case Management Accreditation standards require companies to establish a process to assess, plan and implement case management interventions.
“The URAC accreditation reflects the organization’s commitment to quality services,” said David A. George, CEO of Healthcare Solutions. “The certification demonstrates the organization’s focus on our customers and health care providers by acknowledging the importance of national quality standards for case management services and adhering to them through the URAC process.”
URAC’s Case Management Accreditation standards address approaches to ensuring appropriate patient protections have been established, such as policies for confidentiality of patient information, informed consent, dispute resolution and other issues. The standards cover staff structure and qualifications, quality improvement, information management, oversight of delegated functions, ethics, complaints and the case management process.
“We applaud Procura on achieving the case management accreditation,” said Alan P. Spielman, URAC president and CEO. “In today’s health care market, URAC accreditation provides a mark of distinction for organizations to demonstrate their commitment to quality health care.”
In addition to the URAC case management certification, Healthcare Solutions’ affiliate company, Cypress Care, holds a URAC pharmacy certification for compliance with the workers’ compensation and property and casualty pharmacy benefit management accreditation program.
