Price Chopper/Market 32 Supermarkets, a Schenectady, New York-based Northeast Grocery Inc. operating company, announced that its specialty pharmacy has been reaccredited under URAC’s Specialty Pharmacy Accreditation 4.0 standards. The company launched specialty pharmacy services in 2015.

URAC promotes health care quality by setting high standards for clinical practice, consumer protections, performance measurement, operations infrastructure and risk management.

“We are thrilled to have been reaccredited by URAC,” added Scott Guisinger, VP of pharmacy for Northeast Grocery’s shared services team. “This recognition crowns our provision of best-in-class patient-centric solutions designed to meet the diverse needs of our patients, while further solidifying our status as a trusted, complete health and wellness destination.”

URAC President and CEO Shawn Griffin, said, “Pharmacies and related pharmaceutical services play a critical role in the health care delivery system…Given the complicated nature of chronic disease, pharmacies like Price Chopper/Market 32 Specialty Pharmacy do much more than simply fill a prescription. As trusted experts at the frontline of care delivery, they often provide targeted patient support and education to ensure proper medication management.”

A specialty pharmacy is an accredited, state-licensed facility. It provides costly and complex medications for people with serious health conditions requiring complex therapies; patient care and monitoring services; support for reimbursement challenges; training in medication usage; comprehensive treatment assessment; and frequent communication with the applicable caregivers; physicians and healthcare providers.

“Receiving this URAC accreditation reinforces the commitment of our specialty pharmacy team to provide the highest quality of patient care,” said Alisha Roberts, manager of pharmacy services and business development for Northeast Grocery’s shared services team.

“Our comprehensive specialty pharmacy solution provides patients not only with customized expertise, but also with a high level of medication support that includes navigating insurance benefits, identifying financial assistance, and engaging in comprehensive communication with healthcare providers. Such personalized continuity of care ultimately achieves better adherence to prescribed therapy and an improvement in overall health outcomes.”

Price Chopper/Market 32 Specialty Pharmacy serves patients in New York, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Vermont and New Hampshire. The pharmacy is also accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Health Care.
