Dallas, Texas—AIS Healthcare is proud to announce that its state-of-the-art pharmacy in Ridgeland, Mississippi, which produces patient-specific prescriptions for targeted drug delivery (TDD), has received the prestigious URAC accreditation for Home Infusion Therapy Supplier (HITS). AIS Healthcare is the first organization to secure this specific accreditation with URAC showcasing its drive to deliver specialized, in-home infusion services of the highest quality.
URAC is the independent leader in promoting healthcare quality through leadership, accreditation, measurement and innovation. The new HITS accreditation from URAC focuses on the key role that pharmacists play in providing infusion therapy services, and recognizes the pharmacies that excel in this area. Additionally, home infusion therapy suppliers must be accredited by January 1, 2021 to qualify for bundled payment reimbursement from Medicare.
“Attaining HITS accreditation is not easy, nor should it be,” said URAC President and CEO Shawn Griffin, M.D. “When an organization like AIS Healthcare achieves this distinction, it says they are quality-driven and posting results at the highest levels. We’re pleased to recognize their hard work and success.”
By earning a HITS accreditation AIS Healthcare has demonstrated its commitment to going above and beyond to support patients and empower their providers. From pharmacies that put patient safety first to comprehensive services that enhance the entire care experience, the company goes beyond the expected in everything it does.
“Throughout AIS Healthcare, we’re focused on doing more of what matters throughout the care continuum,” said Pam Carter, Chief Nursing Officer at AIS Healthcare. “This recognition from URAC shows how doing more to advance quality truly does result in meaningful improvements for patients and providers.”
AIS Healthcare also has Specialty Pharmacy and Health Call Center accreditations from URAC, and is accredited by the Pharmacy Compounding Accreditation Board (PCAB) and the Accreditation Commission for Health Care (ACHC), further setting it apart from other compounding pharmacies and infusion services providers.
The URAC accreditation for Home Infusion Therapy Supplier at the Ridgeland pharmacy is effective through February 1, 2023.
