Walgreens Boots Alliance’s specialty pharmacy partnership with Prime Therapeutics has earned reaccreditation for its home delivery pharmacy services. AllianceRx Walgreens Prime has earned URAC’s Mail Service Pharmacy reaccreditation, which will be good for three years.
URAC’s full accreditation status means AllianceRx Walgreens Prime’s home delivery services are meeting industry-leading standards of organizational quality, customer service, communications, drug utilization and pharmacy operation.
“It’s hard to believe it was three years ago when we obtained our initial URAC accreditation for home delivery,” says Tracey James, senior vice president of Pharmacy Services at AllianceRx Walgreens Prime. “URAC accreditation sets high standards for health care quality. Reaccreditation is a testament to our unwavering commitment to quality and safety. It also underscores the hard work and dedication of our team members who continually uphold these high standards of quality for our organization and our patients,” she says.
In order to be accredited organizations must submit policies, procedures and other organizational information for review by URAC.
“As mail service pharmacy options grow, it is important to have a means of verifying that an organization can address the dynamic of cost and quality,” said URAC president and CEO Dr. Shawn Griffin. “AllianceRx Walgreens Prime chose to demonstrate its commitment to industry best practices and regulatory compliance by undergoing a rigorous URAC review and receiving an accreditation of its services. This shows their ability to offer cost-effective care without compromising quality.”
