URAC accreditation requires that an organization demonstrate compliance with numerous standards that focus on quality and best practices. With so many requirements, it can be hard to focus on the intent of the standards and organize what you need to do to meet them.
The Pharmacy Core Standards serve as the common foundation for URAC’s Pharmacy Quality Management® accreditation programs. Organizations must meet the Pharmacy Core standards and the function-specific requirements to be URAC accredited.
In this two-day workshop, our pharmacy reviewers present the standards for Pharmacy Core v3.1 (and the revised delegation standards for Pharmacy Core v3.2), Specialty Pharmacy v3.0 and Mail Service Pharmacy v3.0. We will review the delegation standards in both Pharmacy Core v3.1 and v3.2.
Our pharmacy reviewers will provide detailed information about URAC’s accreditation standards and the requirements needed to meet them before, during and after the application process. You will learn about the accreditation process and scoring methodology, discover what reviewers will assess during the onsite Validation Review, and more.
At the conclusion of this knowledge-based activity, participants will be able to:
Discuss the basic components of URAC’s Pharmacy Core and Specialty Pharmacy/Mail Service Pharmacy standards and what is needed to meet their intent.
Identify the documentation needed to submit a complete application for desktop review.
Describe the scoring weights of the standards.
Describe examples of how other organizations have demonstrated compliance to the Pharm Core and Specialty Pharmacy/Mail Service Pharmacy Standards.
Identify key elements of a quality improvement project.
This two-day workshop is ideal for those considering accreditation, first-time applicants as well as for companies undergoing re-accreditation to provide a review of the current standards.
