PALM HARBOR, Fla., Feb. 23, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Synergy Pharmacy Services proudly announces its achievement of PCAB accreditation, a service of Accreditation Commission of Health Care (ACHC), thus joining an elite group of pharmacies nationwide with this distinction. The accreditation demonstrates that Synergy Pharmacy Services meets the highest quality and safety standards in its profession.
To earn PCAB Accreditation, Synergy Pharmacy Services had to complete an extensive application, document its written policies and provide an analysis of its quality procedures that was reviewed by the Pharmacy Compounding Accreditation Board and some of the leading figures in the field of compounding. Next, the pharmacy opened its doors for an extensive on-site inspection led by compounding experts. Only when these stringent evaluations were completed did the Pharmacy Compounding Accreditation Board officially grant Synergy Pharmacy Services the PCAB Seal of Accreditation and the right to use the designation "PCAB Accredited™ compounding pharmacy."
"We are honored by this accreditation. It confirms our dedication to protecting our patients by practicing safe, high-quality personalized solutions that address patient's medical needs," said Michael Palso, Synergy Pharmacy Services COO. "We believe this will only further strengthen the bonds of trust between our pharmacy, the patients, and the healthcare providers who rely on us for these specialized medications."
Compounding medications is an integral part of the practice of pharmacy and the demand for these customized medications increases every year. Compounded medications are prescriptions that are written by physicians, veterinarians, and other legally authorized prescribers and prepared for an individual patient by a specially trained pharmacist.
The Pharmacy Compounding Accreditation Board is a not-for-profit corporation formed by eight national pharmacy organizations that recognized the need for a national standards organization for compounding pharmacy. Together, these leading organizations developed the policies and standards for the practice of compounding pharmacy, as well as the PCAB Accreditation criteria and processes.
