HCC Client Gets URAC Accreditation:
In our last post we shared how a South Florida client recently requested Healthcare Consultants to provide Pharmacy Consultation assistance in regards to obtaining VIPPS accreditation. Additionally the client asked HCC to assist in obtaining URAC accreditation. Once again HCC provided our client an Experienced Consultant Pharmacist to assist with the mounds of paperwork and discovery required. As with the VIPPS accreditation, upon completion of the assignment we received correspondence from our client that everything was in order and approved.
URAC is an independent, nonprofit organization, that is well-known for promoting healthcare quality through its accreditation, education, and measurement programs.
