Telehealth Accreditation Helps Programs Branch Out and Lower Costs

Telehealth is breaking down barriers to healthcare, one step at a time. From new avenues of telemedicine healthcare to increased access and lowered utilization costs, the URAC Telehealth Accreditation brings rigorous healthcare standards into the 21st century.

Workers’ Compensation

Now, trained medical professionals can make informed assessment about the extent of a worker’s injuries--all while saving workers’ comp programs on their bottom line. Matching clinical outcomes of traditional in-person visits, telemedicine can help triage lesser injuries that may otherwise have prompted a visit to urgent care of the emergency room.


Similarly, more psychiatric providers are taking advantage of telehealth programs to meet clients via Skype, Facetime, or HIPAA-compliant apps. Conducting visits via webcam produce a private, secure environment and also cut down on excess utilization and hospital re-admission.

What about Quality and Security?

Is telemedicine safe and effective? Some might have doubts, but URAC Accreditation is designed to put those doubts to restensure HIPAA compliance and proper vetting of providers by establishing secure technology systems, privacy of information, and quality/qualifications of providers. As telemedicine becomes more prevalent, URAC Accreditation can help telemedicine organizations deliver efficient quality care.
