JACKSON, Miss., Oct. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Transcript Pharmacy has been awarded accreditation status by the Accreditation Commission for Health Care, Inc. (ACHC) for specialty pharmacy services.
"This recognition demonstrates that the level of care and quality of services we offer bring significant benefits to the patients that we serve," said President Cliff Osbon.
ACHC, a private, not-for-profit corporation which is certified to ISO 9001:2008 standards, was developed by home care and community-based providers to help companies improve business operations and quality of patient care. Referring to the value of accreditation, ACHC President Tom Cesar indicated, "The survey process leads an organization to examine its policies and practices continually to clarify its strengths and improve its weaknesses."
Accreditation is a voluntary activity where healthcare organizations submit to peer review of their internal policies, processes and patient care delivery against national standards. By attaining accreditation, Transcript Pharmacy has demonstrated its commitment to maintain a higher level of competency and strive for excellence it its products, services and customer satisfaction.
Last month, Transcript Pharmacy landed on the Inc. 5000 List of the fastest growing privately owned businesses in America for the third year in a row. Osbon attributes the honor to loyal support from practitioners, patients and other health care industry workers, as well as their high-touch patient model.
"We foster a culture of caring which translates into more people using their medication and better health outcomes," said Osbon.
In addition to being highlighted on the List, Transcript placed 3rd among the fastest growing specialty pharmacies and among the Top 100 healthcare companies in the nation.
"We've been able to maintain the attributes of a small business while continuing to grow and offer our patients the best care," said Osbon. "Our staff truly cares about the end result for the patient, and we strive for better outcomes."
In fact, a year-long study conducted by Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) has shown that through personalized communication with each patient, Transcript has improved compliance. Better compliance leads to fewer doctor and hospital visits, which can significantly reduce medical costs for patients.
