The URAC Independent Review Organization Accreditation standards assure that organizations that perform this service establish qualifications for physician reviewers, address medical necessity and experimental treatment issues, have reasonable time periods for standard and expedited reviews, and appeals processes. 

The URAC-accredited Independent Review Organization validates that it is free from conflicts of interest and strives for a fair and impartial review process that is of benefit to both patients and physicians with grievances. 

This webinar, designed for IROs that are planning to undergo an accreditation or reaccreditation, will:

  • Provide an overview of the phases of accreditation
  • Explain the scoring methodology of the standards and how URAC reviewers apply them
  • Discuss the basic components of URAC’s IRO standards and what is needed to meet their intent
  • Describe the documentation needed to submit a complete application for accreditation and desktop review
  • Identify validation review requirements and activities used by URAC’s review staff
  • Identify the educational and support resources available at URAC during the application for accreditation
