Mockingbird Pharma receives NCDQS accreditation
Mockingbird Pharma, a service-oriented wholesaler of generic drugs and a champion of independent pharmacies, has been recognized as a Quality and Security Accredited facility by the National Coalition for Drug Quality & Security.
Mockingbird Pharma becomes just the second facility nationally to meet the accreditation program’s stringent approval criteria. The term of the accreditation is set for three years and applies to its distribution facility located in Garland, Texas.
“Quality and safety are pillars of our organization, so we welcomed the opportunity to have NCDQS review how we operate and are honored to have met the standards set for accreditation,” said Clayton Salch, Mockingbird Health CEO. “Receiving this stamp of approval reinforces to us that the processes we have in place at Mockingbird Health are among the industry’s finest and are effective ways to keep our independent pharmacy customers and their patients safe.”
The accreditation process specifically included an in-depth analysis of Mockingbird Pharma’s standard operating procedures across a wide range of business functions, from employee relations to product authentication and the company’s protocol for reporting illegitimate product, as well as a thorough site inspection of its distribution facility to confirm security, storage conditions, operations and adherence to the submitted policies and procedures.
“Our business is one that’s built on trust, so it means a lot to all of us to receive this sort of independent validation,” Salch said.
