CAMP HILL, Pa. — Rite Aid on Tuesday announced it has been awarded Specialty Pharmacy accreditation from URAC, a Washington, D.C.-based healthcare accreditation organization that establishes quality standards for the healthcare industry.
“We are very proud to have received full accreditation as a specialty pharmacy provider from URAC,” stated Robert Thompson, Rite Aid EVP pharmacy. “Every day, Rite Aid pharmacists are committed to providing all of our patients, especially those receiving specialty pharmacy treatments, with the best care possible. This designation from URAC recognizes our efforts and is great achievement for our Specialty Pharmacy team.”
With FDA approval of more and more complex medication therapies, Rite Aid believes it is critical to have the processes in place to support these therapies and the clinical care programs to promote positive outcomes for patients.
