Hy-Vee earns multiple Compliance Team accreditations

By Sandra Levy - 08/23/2018
Hy-Vee announced Thursday that it had recently received multiple Exemplary Provider Award accreditations for its pharmacy operations from Philadelphia, PA-based the Compliance Team, a Medicare-authorized healthcare accreditation organization.

All of Hy-Vee’s pharmacies earned Exemplary Provider Award recognition and accreditation both in Community Pharmacy and Medicare Part B—DMEPOS (Durable Medical Equipment, Prosthetics, Orthotics, Supplies).

Additionally, 15 pharmacies earned accreditation for Patient Centered Pharmacy Home, the Compliance Team’s program for advanced pharmacy practices. Three locations were accredited for Telepharmacy (remote location prescription fulfillment) and one location earned accreditation and Exemplary Provider Award recognition for its long-term care pharmacy operation.

The corporate headquarters of the employee-owned chain as well as its pharmacies, underwent comprehensive on-site evaluations measured against the Compliance Team’s,patient-centeredd, Safety-Honesty-Caring quality standards that are service specific. A score of 90% or better is needed to earn the rights to display the national accrediting body’s Exemplary Provider Award Certificates of Accreditation.

“We are very excited to have an industry leader, such as HyVee, choose and value The Compliance Team’s Exemplary Provider accreditation for their Quality Validation and as a market differentiator,” Sandra Canally, founder and CEO of The Compliance Team, said.

“Our pharmacy staffs strive every day to provide exceptional patient care,” Hy-Vee’s senior vice president and chief health officer Kristin Williams, said. “This third-party validation confirms Hy-Vee’s dedication to health and wellness.”
