Altamonte Springs, FL (PRWEB) January 27, 2015
BioPlus Specialty Pharmacy (BioPlus), one of the nation’s leading specialty pharmacies, once again earned accreditation from two important industry accrediting bodies: Verified Internet Pharmacy Practice Sites (VIPPS) and Accreditation Commission for Health Care, Inc. (ACHC).
“These renewals of our accreditations demonstrate our commitment to excellence in our products, services, and patient outcomes,” says Nick Maroulis, Pharm.D., Vice President of Specialty Pharmacy Services at BioPlus. “It’s one more way that BioPlus can let our patients, providers, and insurance payers know that our company is committed to the highest level of quality and accountability,” adds Dr. Maroulis.
ACHC, a not-for-profit independent organization established in 1986, is one of a small number of accrediting bodies for the specialty pharmacy industry. Their accrediting programs are developed by providers for providers to reflect criteria that best represents quality care and patient safety. ACHC, the first health care accrediting organization to be certificated to the international quality standard of ISO 9001:2000, accredited BioPlus only after a thorough vetting process. ACHC accreditation indicates that the organizational management, internal processes, patient safety practices, and service outcomes at BioPlus meet the highest standards.
VIPPS is a voluntary program run by the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy that provides U.S. consumers with concrete information regarding the safety and quality of online pharmacies.
“The VIPPS certification gives patients and physicians the assurance that BioPlus offers a safe, secure pharmacy experience and that we operate as a fully licensed pharmacy in compliance with all applicable state boards of pharmacy statutes,” explains Elvin Montanez, Pharm.D., Senior Vice President at BioPlus.
