Date:5/15/2013

Washington, DC (PRWEB) May 15, 2013

Kylanne Green, a recognized leader in hospital and health plan services, has been appointed President and Chief Executive Officer of URAC, the Board of Directors announced today. Ms. Green will take the organization’s helm officially on July 22.

URAC is one of the nation’s largest private accreditation bodies, with cutting-edge data analytics, education, and measurement programs designed to promote continuous quality improvement at a wide range of health care organizations. URAC accredits health insurance plans, utilization review organizations, pharmacy benefit managers, specialty pharmacies, accountable care models, and many other emerging models of care. Recently, URAC was certified by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to accredit health plans offered on new state health insurance marketplace plans as part of the Affordable Care Act.

“At a very pivotal moment, we are extremely gratified to have a leader of Kylanne’s caliber to take the reins of URAC,” said John D. Jones, Chairman of the URAC Board of Directors. “Both URAC and the system itself are at a crossroads and Kylanne’s leadership will be critical in helping us to chart a new path forward. In the coming months, URAC will be spearheading a wide range of new accreditation programs to fit with the changing times and we can’t think of anyone more capable to lead the charge than Kylanne.”

“The fundamental changes taking place throughout health care present tremendous opportunities for those organizations with the vision to seize upon them,” said Ms. Green. “Given its strengths, URAC is uniquely positioned for this moment and will increasingly play a leadership role with health plans, providers, employers, and policymakers in advancing a more accountable, patient-centered system. I am deeply honored to have been chosen to lead URAC and look forward to making URAC a truly best-in-class o
