Specialty Pharmacy Accreditation
Improve patient care and signal to health plans, PBMs, manufacturers and others that you are an ideal contracting partner.
For specialty pharmacies, providing high-quality patient care is a top priority. NCQA’s Specialty Pharmacy Accreditation program shifts the dynamic to a more collaborative experience that embraces innovation and aligns stakeholders.
Built around the patient journey, NCQA’s program looks at what’s most important to drive quality improvement and advance measurement.
A QUALITY IMPROVEMENT FRAMEWORK
NCQA-Accredited Specialty Pharmacies demonstrate best practices for patient-centered care, making them ideal partners in value-based payment arrangements that reward quality.
Specialty Pharmacy Accreditation evaluates these areas:
- Patient Programs.
- Organization, Administration and Compliance.
- Specialty Pharmacy Operations.
- Quality and Performance Improvement.
NCQA-Accredited Specialty Pharmacies participate in a one-of-a-kind, multi-stakeholder Measurement Lab that brings together specialty pharmacies, health plans, PBMs, manufacturers and others to learn from each other and advance quality measurement. This group will collaborate to enable:
- Interorganizational learning.
- Application of evidence-based practices.
- Rapid-cycle development of digital measures to support a variety of use cases.
