LAKE SUCCESS, NY (AUGUST 21, 2013) – CareMed Pharmaceutical Services, a leading specialty pharmacy in the United States, announces it has been awarded Specialty Pharmacy and Mail Order Pharmacy accreditations from URAC (formerly known as Utilization Review Accreditation Commission), an independent, non-profit organization and leader in promoting health care quality through accreditation, education and measurement programs.
Currently, CareMed maintains dual accreditations, having earned its ACHC (Accreditation Commission for Health Care) Accreditation in 2009. CareMed’s URAC and ACHC accreditations demonstrate CareMed’s commitment to excellence and customer service.
“CareMed’s dual accreditation is a testament to our commitment to excellence. CareMed works 24/7 to ensure our patients, their families, and physicians are receiving the highest degree of quality care and service,” reports John Witkowski, Senior Vice President of Sales & Marketing at CareMed. “We take meeting the high standards and scrutiny of the URAC and ACHC very seriously and we are honored to have earned dual accreditation.”
URAC accredits many types of health care organizations and is the largest accrediting body for health care. URAC offers different accreditation programs – some that review the entire organization, such as the health plan standards, and some that focus on quality within a single functional area in an organization. Any organization that meets the standards, including hospitals, HMOs, PPOs, TPAs, and provider groups, can seek accreditation. Accreditation adds value by providing an external seal of approval, and by promoting quality standards within an organization as part of the accreditation process.
ACHC, the first health care accrediting organization to be certified to the international quality standard ISO 9001:2000, accredited CareMed after an extensive vetting process in 2009.
