"By applying for and receiving URAC’s Health Network Accreditation, Access MediQuip has demonstrated a commitment to quality healthcare," said Alan P. Spielman, URAC President and CEO. "Quality healthcare is crucial to our nation’s welfare and it is important to have organizations that are willing to measure themselves against national standards."
Developed and continuously revised through a consensus-driven process involving hundreds of volunteer industry experts, URAC standards set the bar on health and managed care accreditation. URAC's Health Network Accreditation standards include key quality benchmarks for network management, provider credentialing, utilization management, quality management and improvement and consumer protection.
