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 practice. In many respects, COVID pushed the boundaries of care. 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 pharmacy services being provided throughout the community. Pharmacy Services Accreditation positions organizations to demonstrate their commitment to promoting services that ensure quality of patient care.  

Modules

URAC offers four modules within the Pharmacy Services Accreditation program: 

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

Organizations seeking this accreditation will choose at least one module representing the services they provide in addition to the base program requirements. This accreditation publicly recognizes pharmacy organizations for their commitment to providing quality services to their patients and enhancing the care team.
