- Use technology to meet the new patient- and specialty-drug management standards
Why Is This Webinar Important?
Many specialty pharmacies that received accreditation prior to the release of URAC Specialty Pharmacy v3.0 in 2015 may be unprepared for the new requirements of the updated standards.
Patient management will be a focal point of the webinar, as these requirements have undergone considerable changes since earlier URAC accreditation versions. For example, specialty pharmacies must provide a documented patient management overview in their policies and procedures, which include comprehensive details about adherence evaluation and how the pharmacy evaluates the effectiveness of drugs and therapies.
This overview must also describe the process for initial assessments, reassessments, and patient education—all of which must be approved by clinical oversight and be provided to all patients who need specialty drugs. Upon survey, patient records must contain assessments and reassessments; if this is not done, the pharmacy must provide documentation that patients have opted-out.
This is just a glimpse into the planning and preparation that many specialty pharmacies will face to meet the quality standards of URAC Specialty Pharmacy v3.0 patient management requirements.
The Need for Integrated Technology
While it’s possible to achieve URAC Specialty Pharmacy v3.0 accreditation using legacy or manual systems and processes, specialty pharmacies that invest in specialized technology to support the new policies and procedures have a leg-up above their peers.
These platforms offer the ability to systematize and automate critical aspects of operations that include patient and specialty drug management, while simplifying the reporting process required by URAC. Webinar presenters will discuss how TherigySTM™ can provide pharmacies with immense assistance and relief in achieving and maintaining their accreditation status.
