Plano-based Catalyst Health Network, a clinically integrated network of 515 primary care providers, has become the second network in Texas to earn URAC’s full accreditation in Clinical Integration.
URAC, short for Utilization Review Accreditation Commission, is the independent leader in promoting healthcare quality through accreditation, certification, and measurement. Its portfolio of programs includes healthcare management, health plans, telehealth providers, and more.
Catalyst Health Network is the fifth in the nation to earn URAC’s accreditation in Clinical Integration. Renaissance Physicians Organization, which includes more than 1,500 primary care physicians and specialists in Houston and southeast Texas, was the first in Texas to be accredited by URAC in Clinical Integration.
“We are truly honored to not only receive the distinguished URAC accreditation … but also [to] achieve a perfect score in the review process,” Dr. Christopher Crow, president of Catalyst Health Network, said in a prepared statement.
Added Kylanne Green, URAC’s president and CEO: “Accepting the responsibilities of becoming a clinically integrated organization, Catalyst Health Network shows it is committed to quality, coordination services, and care.”
