PITTSBURGH, Feb. 19, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- PANTHERx Specialty Pharmacy®, THE Rare Disease Specialty Pharmacy®, announced today that it has received the Verified Internet Pharmacy Practice Sites (VIPPS) accreditation from the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP), an association that works to ensure higher levels of public health and safety by administering pharmacist assessment programs, pharmacists license transfers, and pharmacy accreditations.
The VIPPS accreditation seeks to separate safe pharmacy websites from the ever-increasing number of illegal pharmacy websites. To achieve this accreditation, PANTHERx Specialty Pharmacy® had to demonstrate that it follows and satisfies the licensing and inspection requirements in each state that the company practices pharmacy, and that www.PantherSpecialty.com meets criteria outlined by the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy.
Receipt of the VIPPS accreditation from the NABP demonstrates a commitment by PANTHERx Specialty Pharmacy® to providing an online presence that reflects the uncompromising quality of its internal standards and practices. Patients searching for a pharmacy online should not have to question the validity and safety of a company, and the VIPPS accreditation helps provide a safer community to connect patients with pharmacy.
"PANTHERx is committed to superior quality in patient and partner service," states PANTHERx Specialty Pharmacy® Chairman and CEO Dr. Gordon J. Vanscoy. "Achieving our fourth accreditation, by VIPPS, is a validation of our focus, process and results. We are proud to make this announcement today which is a testament of PANTHERx excellence in every aspect of our business and the care we deliver."
