Lyra Health, the leading provider of innovative Workforce Mental Health solutions for employers, announced it was accredited by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) in Credentialing. The Accreditation recognizes Lyra’s aptitude in the credentialing of its network of more than 12,000 providers and underscores Lyra’s long-standing commitment to providing access to high-quality mental health care.

NCQA is an independent, not-for-profit organization dedicated to improving health care quality. Companies seeking Credentialing Accreditation are evaluated on strict standards which closely examine a variety of activities including license and malpractice insurance verifications, ongoing sanction monitoring, application review and committee oversight by licensed clinicians as well as ongoing security measures to protect provider information.

“We are committed to delivering the best mental health outcomes for our members and are able to deliver this level of care because we focus intently on maintaining the highest quality provider network in the industry,” said Connie Chen, Chief Operating Officer and Chief Medical Officer, Lyra Health. “The NCQA is the gold standard of independent review and we’re incredibly proud to share that our secure system, rigorous vetting and verification process have exceeded their strict standards.”

“Achieving NCQA Credentialing Accreditation demonstrates that Lyra has the systems, process and personnel in place to conduct credentialing in accordance with the strictest quality standards,” said Margaret E. O’Kane, President, NCQA.

Continuing education coursework covers everything from working with specific populations to cutting-edge treatment approaches to in-depth exploration of ethics and culturally responsive care. The company’s ability to recruit and retain exceptional providers leads to meaningful and measurable results for our customers and members.
