Accreditation Commission for Health Care (ACHC) today announced a newly formed partnership with the Community Oncology Pharmacy Association (COPA). The partnership between the two organizations provides COPA members with access to special pricing options and educational resources for ACHC’s nationally recognized Pharmacy Accreditation services. The partnership will also serve as a foundation to elevate the practice of oncology through the introduction of subspecialty accreditation offerings.
The Community Oncology Pharmacy Association (COPA) is a non-profit organization established to enhance the quality of care for cancer patients. COPA provides information exchange, education, standards, and other resources to help community oncology practices that operate in-practice dispensing or retail pharmacies effectively integrate oral cancer therapy into overall patient care.
“ACHC is thrilled to partner with COPA in an effort to provide the oncology community with resources and services that will lead to enhanced quality and efficiency of treatments,” said Tim Safley, ACHC Director, DMEPOS, Pharmacy, and Sleep. “We are encouraged by COPA’s forward thinking and development of the association to support community cancer clinics and their patients. It is a step in the right direction for the entire industry and will serve to support physicians with quality standards, best practices, and educational resources.”
Since the introduction of its Pharmacy program in 1996, ACHC has grown to become a leading national accreditation organization with more than 900 pharmacies accredited in the U.S. With broad and extensive experience in the area of pharmacy compliance, including accreditation programs for Specialty, Infusion, Long-Term Care, and PCAB Non-Sterile and Sterile compounding, ACHC is positioned to be the solution of choice for all organizations. ACHC is also committed to providing educational resources that facilitate continuous compliance. The organization offers a range of resources designed to help pharmacies achieve and maintain compliance, including workbooks, workshops, and compliance checklists.
ACHC is a non-profit accreditation organization that has stood as a symbol of quality and excellence since 1986. The organization has CMS Deeming Authority for Home Health, Hospice, and DMEPOS and a Quality Management System that is certified to ISO 9001:2008. ACHC is the provider’s choice for accreditation because of its personal Account Advisors, relevant and realistic standards, competitive pricing, and a friendly, consultative approach to accreditation. Accreditation by ACHC reflects an organization’s dedication and commitment to meeting standards that facilitate a higher level of performance and patient care.
