SWARTZ CREEK, Mich., July 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Diplomat Specialty Pharmacy, a leader in disease management (DM) and drug therapy management (DTM) announced today that their specialty pharmacy has received accreditation from URAC, a Washington, DC-based health care accrediting organization that establishes quality standards for the health care industry. Diplomat Specialty Pharmacy received accreditation for their Chronic Kidney Disease DM program, and for their Multiple Sclerosis, Rheumatoid Arthritis and Hepatitis C DTM programs.

"Diplomat is an organization that is dedicated to doing what is right for our patients and our clients. Stringent standards required for URAC accreditation assure our patients and our clients that they are receiving the highest quality services from Diplomat," stated Phil Hagerman, President and CEO of Diplomat Specialty Pharmacy.
