URAC Grants MTM Re-Accreditation Under its Organizational Management Certification Program
As a demonstration of MTM’s deep commitment to quality, we are honored to announce that we recently received re-accreditation from URAC under its Organizational Management Certification program. URAC, a nationally recognized accrediting organization, is the independent leader in promoting healthcare quality through leadership, accreditation, measurement, and innovation. Its Organizational Management Certification in particular provides a rigorous validation of an organization’s capabilities in key management functions, including risk management, consumer protection and empowerment, operations and infrastructure, and performance management.
Through its Organizational Management Certification program, URAC benchmarks organizations against nationally recognized standards, and supports improvements and innovation in healthcare management and delivery. Standards are derived from URAC’s Core accreditation, which defines the foundational operating principles in most URAC accreditation programs. MTM was originally accredited under URAC’s Core standards in 2010; our new accreditation is valid through April 1, 2022.
“URAC’s standards keep pace with the rapid changes in the healthcare system and provide a mark of distinction for organizations to demonstrate their dedication to quality and accountability,” said MTM’s President and CEO Alaina Macia. “MTM was one of the first non-emergency medical transportation companies to achieve URAC accreditation. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services bestows greater confidence onto URAC-accreditation organizations, assuring our clients of MTM’s ability to meet ongoing goals while protecting and empowering their members.”
“By applying for and achieving Organizational Management certification, MTM has demonstrated a commitment to quality healthcare,” said URAC President and CEO Shawn Griffin, M.D. “Quality healthcare is crucial to our nation’s welfare and it is important to have organizations that are willing to measure themselves against national standards.”
