NEW PHILADELPHIA, OHIO Medicine Center Pharmacy proudly announces its fifth consecutive achievement of PCAB Accreditation, a service of ACHC, for the services of Non-Sterile Prescription Compounding. The accreditation is awarded in recognition of the pharmacy’s commitment to meeting and/or exceeding national quality standards. Accreditation is a process through which healthcare organizations demonstrate compliance with national standards. PCAB Accreditation reflects an organization’s dedication and commitment to meeting standards that facilitate a higher level of performance and patient care.
“Medicine Center Pharmacy is committed to delivering the highest quality compounded medications,” said Pharmacist Brad White. “By achieving PCAB Accreditation, our customers can be assured that our organization follows industry best practices and is in compliance with the most stringent national standards.” Compounding is an integral part of the practice of pharmacy, and the demand for these customized medications increases every year. Compounded medications are prescribed by physicians, veterinarians, and other legally authorized healthcare providers and prepared for an individual patient by specially trained Pharmacists and Certified Pharmacy Technicians.
Established in 2007, PCAB was founded by eight of the nation’s leading pharmacy organizations to create voluntary quality accreditation designation for the compounding industry. The organization promotes, develops, and maintains principles, policies, and standards for improving the quality of pharmacy compounding nationwide. In 2014, PCAB accreditation became a service of Accreditation Commission for Health Care (ACHC), whereby ACHC administers the PCAB Accreditation program.
