Making a Difference with Measurement

With the number of prescriptions on the rise and health care spending under greater scrutiny, monitoring the quality of care that specialty pharmacies deliver is more important than ever. This report—which tracks outcomes for a significant portion of accredited pharmacies nationwide over a five-year period—is a step towards establishing those benchmarks that assess the performance of specialty pharmacies.

As one of the leading pharmacy accreditors in the country, URAC collected performance data from 451 unique specialty pharmacies—representing 211 million prescriptions from 2018 to 2022. Analyzing that data, URAC has observed several significant trends that demonstrate the quality of care delivered to patients.
