URAC's revised standards to five accreditation programs

“URAC's Health Network standards have been revised to elaborate on the provider relations program, and to provide clarification on the credentialing phase-in process for Health Networks. Additionally, these standards as well as the Provider Credentialing standards now allow for delegation oversight of the credentialing process to occur remotely. Further revisions to the Provider Credentialing program increased patient protection by requiring procedures that prevent a provider from being listed in a provider directory prior to being credentialed. Requirements for primary source verification of licensure were also clarified.”
