Find an NCODA Center of Excellence Medically Integrated Accredited Practice
The NCODA Accreditation does a really great job at balancing the rigorous quality measurement requirements with real common sense, patient-focused guidance. This accreditation really focuses on real-world medically integrated pharmacy processes and documentation. There weren’t any unnecessary or burdensome requirements that would not apply to our practice. The surveyors were very friendly, professional and knowledgeable, and held us to the rigorous outlines of the accreditation. Overall it was more of a collaborative process. The NCODA Accreditation program really provides the guidance on what high quality care looks like and it helps us demonstrate that we are providing that high quality care with every single patient that comes through our pharmacy.
Having gone through another accreditation process, and then seeing the items that are included in the NCODA Accreditation process and standards, it is really what oncology patients should be getting and what oncology practices should be doing. The standards that the NCODA Accreditation is asking for are really exactly what high quality patient care is. Going through the Prime Therapeutics IntegratedRx pilot, we had a patient that gave us high marks. She was having a really hard time filling her medications through her specialty pharmacy that the insurance mandated. Once we were able to start filling medications for her and getting her prescriptions to her within 24 hours, she could not speak highly enough of this new process. This accreditation allows for the best patient care with high quality and improved time to therapy.
