Certified Urgent Care vs. Accredited Urgent Care: What’s the Difference?
Certification is a designation that a center has met all the eligibility requirements of a nationally standardized definition of scope of services for urgent care. No onsite survey is required. Instead each location is asked to send in documentation that shows it has met each of the certification urgent care criteria.
Accreditation builds on certification, assessing not only the organization’s ability to meet scope of services, but also to meet the standards of patient safety and quality. An onsite survey is required and must be scheduled within 6 months from the time the application is processed.
