BioScrip receives URAC accreditation
ELMSFORD, N.Y. — Washington-based healthcare accrediting organization URAC has awarded specialty pharmacy and mail-service pharmacy accreditation to BioScrip, the specialty pharmacy provider said Wednesday.
“BioScrip is very pleased to have been awarded full accreditation for both specialty pharmacy and mail-serve pharmacy from URAC,” BioScrip president and CEO Richard Smith said. “Going through the process challenged us to find better ways to serve our customers, and it is a constant reminder that our first responsibility is to the patient and the quality of clinical serve we provide.”
The accreditation required BioScrip to participate in a complex application process that included comprehensive review of its customer service and clinical pharmacy processes against a combined 146 quality standards by expert analysts, the company said.
