FAST Access Rx Awarded Specialty Pharmacy ACHC Accreditation

 

Metairie, LA February 13, 2017 — Fast Access Specialty Therapeutics (FAST), a specialty pharmacy that was recently acquired by Factor One Source Pharmacy (FOSRx), announce today that they have officially earned Accreditation Commission of Healthcare (ACHC) Accreditation in the field of Specialty Pharmacy (SRX).

 

The ACHC held their rigorous on-site survey of FAST in Metairie, Louisiana on January 26th, 2017 and granted accreditation to FAST for all services surveyed under the Specialty Pharmacy on February 3, 2017. During the survey, compliance with ACHC standards reflecting key organizational areas were evaluated.

 

FAST already holds accreditations with The Joint Commission and URAC. Holding three accreditations is extremely rare within the specialty pharmacy industry, and is a process that often takes months or years to achieve. Factor One Source Pharmacy (FOSRx), parent company to FAST Rx also maintains accreditation with URAC and The Joint Commission. All three accreditations will ensure the highest levels of regulatory compliance while elevating the standard of operations within their organization by providing a framework to improve business processes, and quality care.

 

“We are proud of the entire company and clinical team that made this accreditation a reality,” Dr. Sajal Roy, PharmD, CSP, CGP, CPSO, CACP, and CEO of FOSRx said.

 

Established in 1986, The ACHC Accreditation program supports the efforts of its accredited organizations to help deliver safe, high quality care and services. Accreditation is regarded as one of the key benchmarks for measuring the quality of an organization.The accreditation process also provided FOSRx with education and guidance to help staff continue to improve its program’s performance.

 

“Each accreditation affirms our processes that we put in place to make sure our patients get the best care and have the best outcomes for their disease states” Roy said. “Our strategic goal is to maintain all accreditations within our organization to demonstrate that we are top leader in Specialty Pharmacy services.”

 

ACHC is a recognized leader in the area of Pharmacy Accreditation, and  reflects an organization’s commitment to providing safe and effective care.  An SRX dispenses medications (injectable, intravenous or oral) in a client’s/patient’s home, physician’s office, or clinic specializing in certain disease states which are often chronic and sometimes life-threatening.  With the continuous changes in health care, patients are in search of reputable providers that consistently offer the best quality care and demonstrate the ability to maintain compliance with national standards.
