Philadelphia, PA - PerformRx (www.performrx.com), the nation’s integrated technology leader offering next generation, full‐service pharmacy benefits management, today announced that it has been awarded a full Drug Therapy Management Accreditation from URAC, a Washington, DC‐based health care accrediting organization that establishes quality standards for the health care industry. URAC’s Drug Therapy Management (DTM) Accreditation identifies PerformRx as meeting the highest standards of safety, effectiveness and service quality.
“This accreditation is further demonstration of the commitment PerformRx has to improve
patient outcomes and improve the coordination of pharmacy services with the other aspects of health care delivery,” said Mesfin Tegenu, MS, RPh, President of PerformRx. “When quality and cost‐effectiveness of health care are maximized, patients benefit. PerformRx takes great pride in the quality of safety and service it provides for its patients on a daily basis, and we are honored to be recognized by URAC for those efforts.”
Today, care managers and pharmacists are increasingly managing a range of factors in drug
therapies such as drug dose, method of delivery, adverse events and cost effectiveness. With this, they also determine guidelines for access to and effective use of drugs by patients. URAC’s DTM standards were developed by experts representing diverse interests in health care — providers, health care organizations, insurers, and the public interest.
“By applying for and receiving Drug Therapy Management Accreditation, PerformRx has
demonstrated a commitment to quality health care,” said Alan P. Spielman, URAC president and CEO. “Quality health care is crucial to our nation’s welfare and it is important to have
organizations that are willing to measure themselves against national standards.”
URAC, an independent, nonprofit organization, is a leader in promoting health care quality
through accreditation and certification programs. URAC's standards keep pace with the rapid
changes in the health care system, and provide a mark of distinction for health care
organizations to demonstrate their commitment to quality and accountability. Through its
broad‐based governance structure and an inclusive standards development process, URAC
ensures that all stakeholders are represented in setting meaningful standards for the health care industry. For more information, visit www.urac.org.
