Over the past few years our healthcare delivery system has placed increased emphasis on the ability for healthcare providers to deliver the triple aim: better care, better health, and lower costs. URAC will present its perspective on recent developments in health care and its response to developing programs that promote the goals of the triple aim.

URAC, an independent, nonprofit organization, is a well-known leader in promoting healthcare quality through its accreditation, education, and measurement programs. URAC offers a wide range of quality benchmarking programs and services that model the rapid changes in the healthcare system and provide a symbol of excellence for organizations to validate their commitment to quality and accountability. Through its broad-based governance structure and an inclusive standards development process, URAC ensures that all stakeholders are represented in establishing meaningful quality measures for the entire healthcare industry.
