OptiMed showcases continued commitment to quality by demonstrating online excellence
KALAMAZOO, Mich., February 13, 2020 (Newswire.com) - OptiMed Health Partners announces receiving full domain approval from the .Pharmacy Verified Websites Program, which enables American consumers to easily and quickly know which pharmacy sites are compliant with U.S. and state laws. Indicated on the .Pharmacy website, “Consumers can type in the name of the pharmacy's website with ".pharmacy" at the end: if the result leads to the pharmacy website, then it's legitimate.”
The .Pharmacy process includes vetting by NABP, prior to the approval of domain registration, to ensure that applicants meet all applicable Program Standards, which also address regulatory standards including pharmacy licensure and valid prescription requirements. Applicants must demonstrate licensure in good standing and compliance with the laws of the jurisdiction in which they are based, as well as in all jurisdictions in which they conduct business including, without limitation, dispensing or shipping prescription medications in or to a jurisdiction.
External validation of OptiMed's quality, safety, and excellence in patient care by two accrediting bodies was a large contributor to a smooth verification by the .Pharmacy Program, as it guides us to uphold the best practices in healthcare.
OptiMed believes in the highest level of quality care by obtaining accreditations from verified, reputable governing organizations. As one of the first 100 specialty pharmacies in the nation to be dually accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Health Care (ACHC) and Utilization Review Accreditation Commission (URAC), OptiMed maintains a dynamic quality assurance and performance improvement program that external accrediting bodies certify our quality and safety. Routinely conducting self-assessments in areas such as prescription turnaround time, telephone service, client satisfaction, patient adherence, and dispensing accuracy, OptiMed consistently exceeds performance goals.
