Genex Earns URAC Reaccreditation for WCUM and CM
March 25, 2015 – Wayne, Pa. — Genex Services, the nation’s largest provider of workers’ compensation case management services, has recently been reaccredited by URAC for both the Workers’ Compensation Utilization Management (WCUM) and Case Management (CM) standards. The reaccreditation outcome reflects Genex’s ongoing dedication to providing the highest-quality clinical care.
Companies holding URAC’s Case Management accreditation are among an elite group of managed care organizations that maintain and measure an essential set of performance standards. These care protocols are designed to reinforce the increasing expectations for excellence in care coordination, meeting optimal health care outcomes and managing care transitions.
Likewise, managed care organizations that have earned the WCUM accreditation have met the industry’s highest standards in addressing the unique characteristics of workers’ compensation utilization management and ensuring quality oversight for this critical area of managed care.
The Genex recertification of these credentials is further validation of the company’s long history of meeting URAC’s high performance standards. Genex has held URAC accreditation since 1994, and was among the first to receive WCUM and CM accreditation status when those credentials were introduced in the mid-to-late 1990s.
“Genex Services is proud to have achieved URAC WCUM and CM reaccreditation status consistently over the past 20-plus years,” said Delphia Frisch, Genex chief operating officer. “These credentials reflect the commitment of our outstanding team of professionals at Genex who uphold our program standards, ethics and quality assurance on a daily basis.”
