Westminster, CO, USA, Oct 13, 2015 -- AxisPoint Health, a provider of care management services to payers and other risk-bearing entities, announced that it has received Health Call Center reaccreditation from URAC, a provider in quality standards for the healthcare industry, for its Nurse Advice Line, a service providing nurse triage, advisory and advocacy support, and member engagement. Formerly a McKesson company, AxisPoint Health’s nurse advice solutions have been accredited by URAC since 1997.

This accreditation demonstrates AxisPoint Health’s commitment to quality services and to meeting nationally recognized standards.
"Connecting members to the right level of care is at the heart of what we do at AxisPoint Health, and our nurse advice services play a critical role," said Dr. Ron Geraty, CEO. "This recognition by URAC is a testament to our dedication to providing solutions that continuously meet the highest industry standards for quality, while delivering value to members and payers alike."
