BioRx Receives URAC Specialty Pharmacy Accreditation

CINCINNATI --(Business Wire)--

BioRx announced today that it has been awarded Specialty Pharmacy accreditation from URAC, a Washington, DC-based healthcare accrediting organization that establishes quality standards for the healthcare industry. BioRx is a highly specialized pharmacy and infusion services provider that secures necessary treatments for patients with ultra-orphan and rare, chronic diseases.

URAC's Specialty Pharmacy accreditation provides an external validation of excellence in specialty pharmacy management and provides continuous quality improvement (CQI) oriented processes that improve operations and enhance compliance. Specialty pharmaceuticals are those that typically require special handling, administration, unique inventory management, and a high level of patient monitoring and support. URAC ensures that all stakeholders are represented in establishing meaningful quality measures supported by evidence-based practice for the entire healthcare industry.

"We are extremely proud to receive specialty pharmacy accreditation from URAC," said Eric Hill, co-founder of BioRx. "Pursuing and achieving URAC accreditation, in addition to our current ACHC accreditation, exemplifies our ongoing commitment to meet standards of quality in everything that we do. Ultimately, it creates an opportunity or us to continually improve and enhance our services."

Specialty medications typically require lifelong clinical and educational support for home or self-administration. BioRx maximizes therapeutic outcomes from select, high-cost specialty drugs. The company's portfolio includes a number of open-source and limited distribution therapies for hemophilia, primary immune deficiency, autoimmune disorders, hereditary angioedema, and alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency.

"By applying for and receiving URAC accreditation, BioRx has demonstrated a commitment to quality healthcare," said URAC President and CEO, Kylanne Green. "Quality healthcare is crucial to our nation's welfare and it is important to have organizations that are willing to measure themselves against national standards and undergo rigorous evaluation by an independent accrediting body."
