URAC Director of Pharmacy Heather Bonome, PharmD and URAC Reviewer Jennifer Richards, PharmD, JD, co-presented at the 2018 Asembia Specialty Pharmacy Summit at the Wynn & Encore Las Vegas. URAC is the premier accrediting organization in the U.S. pharmacy industry.
Bonome and Richards offered insights into the URAC accreditation review process, as well as lessons learned from pharmacies they have reviewed. Richards shared results of a survey completed by URAC Review staff identifying the challenges and opportunities faced by URAC specialty pharmacy clients.
“We believe one of the reasons URAC is considered the ‘Gold Standard’ in pharmacy accreditation is because we leverage our full-time clinicians to conduct validation reviews,” says Bonome. “Pharmacies that pursue URAC Specialty Pharmacy Accreditation benefit from the Reviewers’ years of training and experience through ongoing interaction with this team throughout the review process. URAC’s Pharmacy Reviewers have experience with all models of practice settings – from local community practices to large national organizations – giving URAC the unique opportunity to share best practices.”
