WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 15

2:00pm - 3:00pm EDT (11:00am - NOON PDT)

Many leading risk-bearing entities have been moving from URAC to NCQA accreditation, but the NCQA process can be daunting for both health plans and providers. And which accreditation should you pursue: Health Plan, Utilization Management, Case Management or — new for 2018 — Population Health Management?

During this one-hour webinar, 22-year NCQA surveyor Cindy Allen-Fedor walked through the overall NCQA process and netted out the relative merits of Health Plan, UM, CM and PHM accreditation. Medecision’s Nan Sloan then explained the new HIT pre-validation process for PHM software and how it may help Aerial users receive automatic credit on future surveys.
