KNOXVILLE, TN (PRWEB) December 04, 2015
Compounding Pharmacy of America is proud to announce it has achieved national accreditation by the Pharmacy Compounding Accreditation Board (PCAB), which is a service of the Accreditation Commission for Health Care (ACHC). Compounding Pharmacy of America’s accreditation means it complies with national standards and industry best practices.
Health care organizations have to go through a rigorous process in order to achieve national accreditation. Accreditation by the PCAB reflects Compounding Pharmacy of America’s dedication to meeting or exceeding nationwide standards that encourage a high level of patient care and performance.
“Compounding Pharmacy of America is committed to providing the highest quality of compounded medications to the many communities we serve,” said Compounding Pharmacy of America CEO Victor Poteet, Pharm.D. “By achieving accreditation from the PCAB, we’re showing our existing and future customers that our organization follows the best practices in the industry and meets the most rigorous national standards. Additionally, Compounding Pharmacy of America is steadfast in going the extra mile for customers, including delivering their compounded medications in the most convenient way possible.”
Compounding medications is an increasingly essential practice within the pharmacy industry, as the demand for this form of medication increases every year. Physicians, veterinarians and other authorized medical professionals can write prescriptions for compounded medications, which are, in turn, prepared by a specially trained pharmacist.
The PCAB was founded in 2008 by eight of the country’s most prominent pharmacy organizations to provide accreditation opportunities for companies within the compounding industry. The PCAB develops and promotes the principles and standards that guide the quality of the compounding industry nationwide. PCAB accreditation became a service of the ACHC in 2014, and the ACHC began to administer the PCAB accreditation program.
