Discover How URAC Telehealth Accreditation Standards Promote Innovation and Accountability
Telehealth providers must demonstrate that they can deliver high-quality healthcare while contributing to improvements in the overall healthcare system. But, there are few objective, independent performance benchmarks, thresholds, and measurements for telehealth providers and purchasers to use. Plus, high-quality telehealth services cannot be based on regulatory compliance alone.
This URAC issue brief, The Growth of Telehealth Services: The Role of URAC Telehealth Accreditation Standards in Promoting Innovating and Accountability, outlines the key patient care and quality issues, and how URAC's telehealth accreditation standards address these issues. For developing and innovating programs, URAC accreditation acts as well as a tool for migrating an evolving service into a touchstone of accountability, excellence, and best practices.
