TAMPA, Fla. (PRWEB) November 21, 2018
Benzer Pharmacy proudly announces that its retail storefront in Auburndale, Florida has met URAC’s threshold for mail service pharmacy accreditation. In the process of achieving this singular distinction, the Auburndale team led efforts to equal stringent qualification criteria in the areas of customer service, drug utilization management, and quality improvement, among other disciplines related to mail service outcomes.
According to a company statement, deserving of special recognition for their contributions to this initiative were Benzer Pharmacy’s Shuchi Dwivedi, Director of Clinical Services; Wendy Cavanaugh, Director of Quality; Kate Doyle, Accreditation Coordinator; and Brianna Young, Lead Technician Manager.
Putting their collective work into perspective, Wendy Cavanaugh was quick to praise the others for everything they did “behind the scenes” to make this accreditation possible.
“By achieving this status, our company has demonstrated a comprehensive commitment to quality care, improved processes, and better patient outcomes,” Cavanaugh said. “It was an honor to join Shuchi, Kate, and Brianna in drilling down the details of the mail service pharmacy accreditation process. Together, we learned a lot; but more importantly, moving forward, we helped establish a benchmark for mail service practices that set the gold standard for the system.”
In plain agreement with that assessment was Benzer Pharmacy’s Chief Operations Officer, Noah Chapman, who made it clear that the accolade stands as a “true symbol of excellence” in specialty pharmacy.
“On behalf of all our employees and key stakeholders, we are honored to have been granted this prestigious and respected accreditation from URAC—the independent, not-for-profit leader in promoting healthcare quality through accreditation, certification, and measurement,” Chapman said. “In brief, URAC accreditation provides a greater measure of proof that Benzer maintains the highest quality in internal and external protocols to support shipping prescription medications directly to the consumers.”
In 1996, the Utilization Review Accreditation Commission was prompted to shorten its name to the URAC acronym after making the move to broaden its accrediting powers to health plans, pharmacies, and other provider organizations. Today, it exists as a standard-bearer for best practices in the pharmacy industry.
Benzer Pharmacy’s Auburndale, Florida storefront is located at 301 Havendale Blvd. and is open for business weekdays from 9 am to 7 pm, and on Saturdays from 10 am to 4 pm. Customers can reach the pharmacy by phone at 863-875-4700 or by fax at 863-875-5619.
