Clinically Integrated Networks (CINs) enable health systems and providers to deliver value-based care, improving clinical outcomes, cost efficiencies and patient satisfaction. The organizational framework of a CIN also provides legitimacy to negotiate with payers. But, structuring a CIN is complicated and comes with compliance risks. The U.S. Federal Trade Commission, Department of Justice and state regulators closely scrutinize the structures of these networks to safeguard against antitrust violations.
CINs are choosing URAC Clinical Integration Accreditation to demonstrate clinical integration, navigate the complex requirements of the FTC and DOJ to avoid regulatory and legal pitfalls, and empower the organization to implement the proper operational and compliance foundations to ensure success with payers and partners.
You’ll hear from Casey Osborne, Vice President, PCCN, and Ginger Hines, Senior Director of Operations, SCCN, on why they chose to pursue accreditation and their experiences in the accreditation process. Find out how the process of URAC accreditation helps create a sustainable framework for clinical integration and walks the organization through the steps for setting up a network aligned with the FTC guidelines. You’ll discover how Clinical Integration Accreditation helps to:
Negotiate from a stronger position with payers and partners
Achieve better agreements and delegated services in medical management under value-based and risk arrangements
Avoid the complex reviews by legal counsel and consultants (PCCN is able to budget less money for legal and consulting fees)
Plus, Osborne and Hines will provide tips on the accreditation process including:
How to establish a roadmap to launch CIN accreditation activities at your organization to achieve clinical integration standards
Tips to organize your efforts for the submission requirements
How to ensure your team is on board with the final documentation that is submitted to URAC
Resources required and the time to get accreditation
The proper team and approach to work through the accreditation process
What to expect during the desktop review and onsite audits
The role that care coordination programs play in Clinical Integration accreditation
The role of the health system or hospitals in the accreditation process
And much more.
Don’t miss this great opportunity to hear from two CINs – one that recently became URAC accredited for clinical integration, and one that is currently going through the process – on their experiences. Plus, you’ll get a chance to ask the speakers questions directly through the live Q/A session in the last 30 minutes of the webinar.
