DirectRx gets Accreditation Commission for Health Care certification
Direct Rx is an independent specialty pharmacy, and the Accreditation Commission for Health Care (ACHC) is a national organization developed by homecare and alternate-site health care industry providers.
DirectRx also received Specialty Pharmacy accreditation by the Utilization Review Accreditation Commission in 2014, making the company one of the few independent specialty pharmacies to have achieved both accreditations.
ACHC accreditation is based on quality of services to ensure the best care for patients, as well as an organization's dedication and commitment to meeting standards for a higher level of performance and patient care.
"As a family-owned business, owned and operated by doctors of pharmacy, we are proud to receive this accreditation," DirectRx spokeswoman Amanda Berishaj said. "With more than 25 years of experience in the pharmaceutical industry, the leadership team at DirectRx is experienced, innovative and accessible to our patients.
"We have worked hard to ensure that our company fulfills the requirements set forth by ACHC, and we look forward to maintaining and exceeding those expectations in the future," Berishaj said. "Through this accreditation, we are confident that our specialty-pharmacy patients will remain within our carefully coordinated circle of care. At DirectRx, there are no gaps in patient care between physician and pharmacy because we believe that collaboration and communication are critical to creating favorable treatment outcomes. We are large enough to provide the full range of specialty medications, yet small enough to care that each patient stays on their prescribed regimen and receives the support they need throughout the course of their treatment."
Achieving accreditation is a process in which health care organizations demonstrate compliance with national standards.
