In addition, UofL Health – Specialty Pharmacy obtained URAC (Utilization Review Accreditation Commission) accreditation in January 2020. As a URAC-accredited specialty pharmacy, we  provide therapy-specific patient management services, promote safety and accuracy in dispensing practices, qualify all medication distribution processes for appropriate temperature ranges, provide 24/7 patient and prescriber support and comply with foundational standards on risk management, consumer empowerment and performance management.
