P&R Dental Strategies Receives Perfect 100% Score for Its Clinically Sound Process and Commitment to Promoting Quality Health Services
NEW YORK, NY, Dec. 8, 2015 — P&R Dental Strategies, LLC, the premier dental insights company delivering customized, actionable business intelligence to support a variety of dental payer objectives, today announced that it has been granted full URAC reaccreditation relating to its Health Utilization Management program with a perfect score of 100%. P&R Dental Strategies’ utilization management procedures have been accredited by URAC since 2010, and the update that took place in November extends accreditation for three years.
URAC’s Health Utilization Management accreditation ensures that all organizations conducting utilization review follow a clinically sound process and respect patients’ and providers’ rights while giving payers reasonable guidelines to follow. Accreditation ensures the adequacy of health utilization management programs through evaluation against broadly recognized standards and measures. The URAC Accreditation Committee reviewed P&R Dental Strategies’ procedures and granted full accreditation pursuant to its Health Utilization Management, Version 7.2 standards.
“P&R Dental Strategies should be commended for meeting strict quality standards,” said URAC President and CEO Kylanne Green. “It is critically important for health care organizations to make a commitment to quality and accountability. URAC accreditation is a demonstration of that commitment.”
Paul T. Sheils, P&R Dental Strategies’ CEO, said, “We’re thrilled with the results of this URAC accreditation review and the hard work of our team to achieve a perfect score with no deficiencies. It shows that not only are P&R’s claim review systems secure, HIPAA compliant and functioning in accordance with URAC best practices, but validates that year after year P&R’s utilization review solutions are truly the gold standard in the dental industry.”
Mr. Sheils added, “Our perfect score with URAC also demonstrates our company-wide commitment to quality and best practices in everything we do at P&R, including our flexible, cutting-edge technology platform that provides an enterprise-level suite of claim review and management, provider profiling, fraud and abuse prevention and network development solutions to customers seeking to contain costs and maximize efficiency across their businesses.”
