Salem, NH (PRWEB) April 10, 2014

Alicare Medical Management (AMM), a national leader in care management solutions that promotes cost savings and client satisfaction, is celebrating 20 years of meeting URACs quality-based standards.

URAC sets the industry standard for quality in the health care arena, so we are extremely proud to hold four URAC accreditations for our programs, says Claire Levitt, president of Alicare Medical Management. The fact we have met URACs quality standards for two decades reflects our undying commitment to providing top-tier services to our clients. AMM holds URAC-approved accreditation for its Utilization Management, Case Management, 24/7 Nurse Helpline and Independent Review services.

Receiving its first URAC accreditation in 1994 for the Health Utilization Management Accreditation Program, Alicare Medical Management has served as a resource and beta test site to URAC for several other URAC accreditation programs, including Case Management, Health Call Center, and Independent Review Standards.

By applying for and receiving URAC accreditation for 20 years, Alicare Medical Management has demonstrated a commitment to quality healthcare, says Kylanne Green, URAC president and CEO. Quality healthcare is crucial to our nations 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, an independent, nonprofit organization, is a well-known leader in promoting healthcare quality through its accreditation, education, and measurement programs. URAC offers a wide range of quality benchmarking programs and services that model the rapid changes in the healthcare system and provide a symbol of excellence for organizations to validate their commitment to quality and accountability.

Alicare Medical Management has helped URAC develop an array of quality standards over the years. According to Garry Carneal, JD, MA, former URAC president & CEO, Alicare Medical Management has been a leading innovator in the care management field for decades, so it was a natural fit to look to them to better understand emerging trends as URAC developed new accreditation programs. Among other contributions, Alicare Medical Management provided critical insights on how case management and 24/7 nurse triage programs should be run and operated when URAC was developing accreditation programs covering those activities.

URAC takes a collaborative, educational approach to accreditation. During the application process, customer service and support is available to provide assistance to applicants. New applicants are encouraged to attend a standards workshop where they can learn more about the standards and the process first hand. URAC accreditation requires applicants to submit policies, procedures and other organizational information to URAC followed by an onsite review. Once an application is received by URAC, a primary reviewer is assigned and coordinates all aspects of the review until completion.

Answer by Flower
I would like people to worry that much about the other legislation we have had passed under other presidents. You dont know about something that is new until you see the effects of it. That applies to any major change to any of our institutions.

AZ Retirees Celebrate 47 Years of Medicare Statewide

AZ Retirees from Tucson, Phoenix, and Prescott celebrated 47 years of Medicare with local leaders. Medicare and Medicaid were signed into law in 1956 to make sure that working people, seniors, and people with disabilities could get the healthcare they need at critical moments. Both programs have a proven track record of success that is detailed in the report we’re releasing today. It is this record of success that we should be building upon and expanding. Instead, however, these programs face attack after attack from conservative lawmakers who want to roll back the clock on these guaranteed benefits and leave our families on their own with the insurance companies haggle for health care for their aging parents, children with disabilities like autism or cerebral palsy, and people with disabilities that require the most complicated care. The Republican budget passed earlier this year dismantles Medicaid and ends Medicare as we know it, undermining the economic security of middle class families all over the country. Medicare is the best way to provide seniors and people with disabilities with affordable health care they can count on. It protects beneficiaries and their families against health expenses that could drive them into bankruptcy or worse—force them to forego medical treatment they need to survive. Because of its concentrated purchasing power, Medicare controls costs better than private insurance companies. While Medicare’s costs per person increased by about 4.7
