Accreditation Commission for Health Care (ACHC) has introduced the industry’s first Distinction in Nutrition Support (NTS). Designed to augment ACHC Infusion Pharmacy Accreditation, this Distinction allows providers to demonstrate their expertise in the provision of nutrition products and formulas as well as their commitment to optimal patient care.

‘‘ACHC continues to provide ways for customers to demonstrate excellence within the pharmacy industry,’’ said ACHC Director of DMEPOS, Pharmacy & Sleep Tim Safley, MBA. “The Distinction in Nutrition Support focuses on nutrition-specific pharmacy operations and the provision of care, allowing infusion providers to differentiate themselves among their competitors.”

Pharmacies seeking to achieve a Distinction in NTS must do so in combination with ACHC Infusion Pharmacy Accreditation. The Nutrition Distinction joins ACHC’s other market-differentiating Distinctions in Oncology, Infectious Disease Specific to HIV, and Hazardous Drug Handling (ref. USP 800).

With a broad array of pharmacy compliance solutions, including accreditation programs for 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 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 9001:2015. 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. ACHC is also committed to helping its customers maintain continuous compliance through a comprehensive suite of educational resources. Accreditation by ACHC reflects an organization’s dedication and commitment to meeting standards that facilitate a higher level of performance and patient care.
