Bluegrass Pharmacy was recently awarded a URAC Specialty Pharmacy accreditation. BHM Healthcare Solutions, a comprehensive healthcare management consulting firm, provided assistance to Bluegrass Pharmacy that was pivotal in helping the organization successfully achieve this important accreditation. URAC is the largest accrediting body for healthcare organizations and is recognized nationwide. URAC accreditation is a symbol of excellence and validation of an organization’s commitment to quality and accountability.
Bluegrass Pharmacy supplies all prescription needs, including home infusion to clients throughout Madisonville, Kentucky and the surrounding communities. Bluegrass has served its clients since 1980, Seeing the need for a full service medical equipment supplier, Bluegrass Home Medical was started in 1992. After many years of servicing the nursing home community, Bluegrass separated its long term care business from its retail store in 2007 to create Bluegrass LTC Pharmacy. BHM’s URAC Accreditation Assistance Team conducted a thorough review of Bluegrass’ existing policies, procedures, program descriptions, reports, and other data to evaluate their compliance with URAC standards. After developing a detailed project plan, BHM consultants collaborated with members of Bluegrass Pharmacy to efficiently and cost-effectively ensure that the organization was fully prepared to meet URAC accreditation standards.
“We are proud to have teamed with Bluegrass in achieving URAC accreditation,” states Mark Rosenberg, President of BHM. “As a specialty pharmacy, Bluegrass is a part of one of the most rapidly growing segments in today’s rapidly evolving healthcare industry. We believe that attaining this accreditation will better position Bluegrass Pharmacy to develop strategic partnerships with accountable care organizations (ACOs) as they endeavor to deliver superior patient care at lower costs.”
