Why Pharmacy Services Accreditation?

Vaccine Administration, Point-of-Care Testing, Drug Therapy Management, Community Dispensing

The onset of the COVID pandemic shed light on the critical role that pharmacists play in community health. In many ways, COVID pushed the boundaries of care that pharmacists provide. Additionally, with the growth of pharmacy-based clinics and health hubs, pharmacies now serve more patients in what was once simply a site for dispensing medications. 

With that in mind, URAC developed its Pharmacy Services Accreditation as an independent third-party validation of the quality of services that pharmacies are providing throughout the community. Pharmacy Services Accreditation positions organizations to demonstrate their commitment to promoting services that ensure quality of patient care.  

Modules

There are four modules in URAC's Pharmacy Services Accreditation program: 

  • Vaccine Administration Program 
  • Point-of-Care Testing Program 
  • Drug Therapy Management Program 
  • Community Dispensing Program 

When you pursue this accreditation, you can choose the module(s) that are right for your organization. In this way, the accreditation reflects the exact work your pharmacy does in the community. This accreditation publicly recognizes pharmacy organizations for their commitment to providing quality services to their patients and enhancing the care team.
