Med Center Specialty Pharmacy Pharmacy which is part of the Elwyn Pharmacy Group, announces today that URAC, the largest accrediting body for health care, has given its seal of approval by accrediting it through a rigorous on-site process.  This most recent accreditation from URAC adds to a prestigious list of accreditations that Med Center Specialty Pharmacy already maintains, including accreditation from ACHC.

It is an honor to achieve full URAC accreditation at Med Center Specialty Pharmacy.  This accreditation displays our commitment to quality and excellence in providing the highest level of customer service possible to our patients and referral sources.  We are so proud of our Med Center Specialty Pharmacy team members for their hard work and dedication to our mission which made this monumental task a reality (“Our goal is to achieve optimal patient outcomes through compliance and delivery of individualized medication therapy management in an environment that maximizes patient satisfaction and adherence”) says Nicholas Karalis, RPh, President CEO at Elwyn Pharmacy Group

URAC, the industry leader for health care accreditation, is an independent, nonprofit organization that provides benchmarking services throughout the health care system. The URAC accreditation process included a review of all of Med Center Specialty Pharmacy’s policies and procedures as well as an onsite visit to confirm that the operations at Med Center Specialty Pharmacy do, in fact, conform to all documented submitted policies and procedures. A committee of health care experts developed the URAC standards, which are updated every three years.

Since URAC is independent accrediting body patients, referral sources as well as other customers can feel confident that the accreditation process is impartial and not influenced by any other outside industry interests. Accreditation from URAC serves as a symbol of excellence and demonstrates to patients, providers, and insurance payers that Med Center Specialty Pharmacy as an independently owned and operated company is committed to operating at strict quality standards.
