Patients and Payers Are Looking for Your Commitment to Quality


The next Accreditation Workshop will take place September 16-17, 2020 at UCA Headquarters in the Chicago suburbs.



You’ll benefit from this workshop if you are contemplating or in the process of accreditation, or already accredited and working on maintaining your status.  

The Accreditation Workshop is a different kind of learning experience. Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in a Survey Snapshot: A Glimpse into an Onsite Survey. The Survey Snapshot a "mock survey" that will walk you through some of the more important features of an onsite survey, and will help prepare you for what to expect when the surveyor arrives at your center.

Attendees at the Accreditation Workshops in 2018 and 2019 were informed, enlightened and satisfied:


"I learned quite a few new ideas, tips and tricks on how to successfully operate a small to large business while maintaining strong safety/compliance.Having the ability to bounce thoughts off of other management, doctors and UCA Board members allows one to think outwards.  And being able to go through audits and walk throughs makes it easier for us to be prepared." ~ Aaron Martin, Market Leader, CareWell Urgent Care (November 2019 attendee)


"This conference really gave me the tools I needed to understand the details and importance of the accreditation standards. But more importantly, as a new urgent care, it helped me to identify weaknesses, better organize our operations, and give our patients the best possible care." ~ Tamara Moise, DO, Co-Founder & Lead Physician, Big Apple Medical Walk-In Urgent Care, PLLC (August 2018 attendee)


"Wonderful introduction and overview of the accreditation process.  All of the presenters were very knowledgeable and supportive to all participants.  I was given a lot of resources and though it's overwhelming,I feel very encouraged to start the accreditation process."  ~ Jillian Stratton, Administrator, Kinder Pediatric Urgent Care (November 2019 attendee)


"The workshop has been very valuable to me with gaining understanding of the accreditation process. The information was very direct and helpful on every level. I feel 100% more confident than I did before with implementing these processes and communicating with our senior leadership team regarding the importance of our UCA Accreditation."  ~ Bryan Fleming, MBA, Quality & Patient Safety Manger, Doctors Care (August 2019 attendee)
