URAC announces partnership with Foundation for Chiropractic Progress

October 4, 2012 — URAC, a leading healthcare accreditation organization, has announced a special pilot project in conjunction with the Foundation for Chiropractic Progress (F4CP) to determine whether chiropractic care models can achieve the principles of the patient centered health care home.

URAC defines a patient centered healthcare home (PCHCH) as a quality driven, interdisciplinary clinician-led team approach to delivering and coordinating care that puts patients, family members, and personal caregivers at the center of all decisions concerning the patient’s health and wellness.

A PCHCH provides comprehensive and individualized access to physical health, behavioral health, and supportive community and social services, ensuring

patients receive the right care in the right setting at the right time.

Select URAC PCHCH program standards consistent with state-specific chiropractic medicine licensed scope of practice will be evaluated to determine whether chiropractic care models can achieve the principles of patient centered healthcare.

“Chiropractors have broad diagnostic skills and are also trained to recommend therapeutic and rehabilitative exercises, as well as to provide nutritional, dietary and lifestyle counseling,” said Alan P. Spielman, URAC president and CEO. “The ultimate goal of URAC’s PCHCH program is to coordinate all aspects of a patient’s care, so it is important to evaluate how chiropractic health care can best support that goal.”
