Healthcare Solutions, the parent company of Cypress Care, Procura Management, ScripNet and Modern Medical, announced today that its subsidiary, Procura Management, has been awarded full accreditation for case management from URAC, a Washington, DC-based health care accrediting organization that establishes quality standards for the health care industry. This is the second time Procura Management has received full case management accreditation from URAC. The accreditation is effective January 1, 2015 through January 1, 2018.
“The URAC accreditation underscores the organization’s commitment to providing the highest quality standards for case management services,” said Joe Boures, president and CEO of Healthcare Solutions. “The company is focused on operational excellence in delivering case management services that reduces medical costs for our customers and achieves optimal outcomes for claimants.”

Procura Management has been URAC accredited for case management since 2011. For 25 years the company has provided medical case management services as well as a comprehensive array of managed care services including medical bill review and PPO network services to the workers’ compensation and auto/PIP markets.
“By applying for and receiving URAC accreditation, Procura Management has demonstrated a commitment to quality health care,” said Kylanne Green, URAC president and CEO. “Quality health care is crucial to our nation’s welfare and it is important to have organizations that are willing to measure themselves against national standards and undergo rigorous evaluation by an independent accrediting body.”
URAC is an independent, nonprofit healthcare accrediting organization dedicated to promoting healthcare quality through accreditation, education and measurement. The organization offers the largest array of accreditation programs in the United States assessing health plan operations, including but not limited to, network operations, healthcare practitioner credentialing systems, and medical management functions.
