Founded in 1990, URAC is the independent leader in promoting healthcare quality through leadership, accreditation, measurement, and innovation. URAC is a nonprofit organization using evidence-based measures and developing standards through inclusive engagement with a range of stakeholders committed to improving the quality of healthcare. Our portfolio of accreditation and certification programs span the healthcare industry, addressing healthcare management, healthcare operations, health plans, pharmacies, telehealth providers, physician practices, and more. URAC accreditation is a symbol of excellence for organizations to showcase their validated commitment to quality and accountability.
“It’s necessary for specialty pharmacies to provide a higher level of treatment for patients so desired outcomes are achieved. PFSP shows a dedication to patient education and safety through the recognition of quality it received with URAC’s independent accreditation,” said URAC President and CEO Kylanne Green. “With URAC accreditation, people know that PFSP strives to adhere to industry best practices.”
In addition, more than 90 percent of the 7,000 known rare diseases have no approved therapy. Advances in science offer real hope to patients, as well as significant opportunities for specialty pharmacies. To support and recognize the high level of skills required to serve these patients, URAC, the nation’s leading health care accreditation authority, offers its Rare Disease Pharmacy Center of Excellence Designation to organizations that can rise to this challenge.
