Accreditation Commission for Health Care (ACHC) announces its new group purchasing agreement with Innovatix. This agreement allows Innovatix member pharmacies to receive discounts and savings on ACHC accreditation programs and on Accreditation University (AU) educational resources that help prepare members for ACHC Accreditation.
“The agreement between ACHC and Innovatix offers members a smart approach to purchasing through competitive pricing on accreditation services and educational resources,” said Matt Hughes, ACHC Director, Business Development. “Innovatix members can choose from the broad range of pharmacy accreditation programs available from ACHC, including our specialty pharmacy distinction programs, and differentiate their pharmacy from competitors.”
Since the introduction of its Pharmacy Accreditation program in 1996 (and as the first accrediting body to offer accreditation in Specialty Pharmacy), ACHC has grown to become a leading national accreditation organization with more than 6,000 pharmacies accredited in the U.S. With a broad array of pharmacy compliance solutions, including accreditation programs for community retail, specialty, infusion, and long-term care, as well as non-sterile and sterile compounding services, ACHC is positioned to be the solution of choice for all clinical settings as well as for payors, manufacturers, and regulatory bodies. ACHC has taken additional steps to meet market needs by offering specialty distinctions in Oncology and Infectious Disease Specific to HIV. With a comprehensive suite of educational resources, ACHC is also committed to helping its customers maintain continuous compliance.
ACHC is a nonprofit accreditation organization that has stood as a symbol of quality and excellence since 1986. The organization has CMS Deeming Authority for Home Health, Hospice, and DMEPOS and a Quality Management System that is certified to ISO 9001:2008. ACHC is the provider’s choice for accreditation because of its personal Account Advisors, relevant and realistic standards, competitive pricing, and a friendly, consultative approach to accreditation. Accreditation by ACHC reflects an organization’s dedication and commitment to meeting standards that facilitate a higher level of performance and patient care.
