IACP and ACHC renew partnership, announce $500 discount on PCAB accreditation

 

ALEXANDRIA, VA (3 April, 2019) – International Academy of Compounding Pharmacists members can receive a $500 discount on PCAB accreditation fees under IACP's new agreement with the Accreditation Commission for Healthcare.

 

In combination with a compounding pharmacy’s commitment to continuous compliance, PCAB Accreditation significantly reduces the risk associated with compounding medications and demonstrates a commitment to meeting the highest industry standards for quality and safety.

 

IACP members will receive the discount via a coupon code they must access at iacprx.com (login required).

 

“IACP is delighted to continue our partnership with ACHC to elevate the practice of compounding pharmacy via PCAB accreditation," said IACP Executive Vice President Scott Brunner, CAE. “Through this agreement, we aim to increase the number of accredited pharmacies across America and to showcase to consumers, policymakers and the media that IACP membership and PCAB accreditation are the marks of excellence and integrity in compounding pharmacy."

 

“ACHC has always valued our partnership with IACP, and we are pleased to continue to be able to offer their members the resources and education that will enhance their ability to foster excellence in pharmacy compounding,” said Matt Hughes, ACHC Director of Business Development. “There is great benefit to being aligned with quality healthcare companies, and we are proud to call IACP one of our highly esteemed, loyal partners.”

 

Established in 2007 by eight of the nation’s leading pharmacy organizations, Pharmacy Compounding Accreditation Board (PCAB) offers the most comprehensive compliance solution in the industry, with standards based on U.S. Pharmacopeial Convention (USP) guidelines. PCAB assesses pharmacies that compound medications whether in the retail, hospital, mail order, or closed-door setting. This includes the combining, mixing, or altering of drug ingredients to create a medication pursuant to a prescription order for an individually identified patient. An extensive on-site survey conducted by an independent expert and annual verification ensures compliance with the non-sterile and sterile pharmacy compounding process defined by USP <795> and USP <797>.
