Cottrill’s Specialty Pharmacy gets ACHC, URAC accreditations

By David Salazar - 03/14/2018
Cottrill’s Specialty Pharmacy, an independent pharmacy based in Orchard, N.Y., recently received specialty pharmacy accreditations from the Accreditation Commission for Healthcare and URAC, as well as ACHC accreditation for home/durable medical equipment services.

In order to receive these accreditations, Cottrill’s Specialty Pharmacy, which is licensed in 47 states and has been around since 1899, had to show compliance with national standards of performance and patient care.

“Our team consists of experts in the fields of pharmacy, nursing, data Collection, compliance and patient advocacy,” David Obrochta, owner and president of Cottrill’s, said. “This allows us to maximize each patient’s treatment plan in the most effective and cost-efficient manner possible.  We understand that every patient is unique, and that their needs may change, so we truly offer personalized care for every patient. Our goal is to exceed the expectations of our patients, providers, manufacturers and payers. Achieving accreditation with URAC and ACHC are two more ways that we demonstrate this commitment to providing the highest standards in patient care.”

Cottrill’s said it specializes in treating patients with chronic conditions, rare diseases and genetic disorders.

“The development of new, complex, and costly drugs makes good patient management an imperative,” URA president and CEO Kylanne Green said. “This makes accrediting pharmacies that manage patients more important than ever. We applaud Cottrill’s Pharmacy on achieving an accreditation of the quality of their pharmacy services through URAC. Cottrill’s shows a dedication to patient education and safety through the recognition of quality it received with URAC’s independent accreditation.”
