WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Center for Pharmacy Practice Accreditation (CPPA), a partnership of pharmacy-based organizations, announced today that it has awarded specialty pharmacy practice accreditation to ASPcares specialty pharmacy.
“We understand the importance of providing patient-centered care. We believe that when patients are involved in their care, they are more inclined to be adherent to their medication regimens. Our team is also focused on providing excellent customer service to our patients and healthcare partners” said Candace Jones, BS, MHA, PharmD, RPh, Pharmacist-in-Charge at ASPcares-Sugarland.
CPPA’s mission, which is unique among accreditors, is to serve the public health by raising the level of pharmacy‐delivered patient care services through accreditation. CPPA provides a standardized method for recognizing exceptional pharmacy practices that promote practice innovation and empower pharmacists to practice at a higher level. CPPA recognizes pharmacy practices that are committed to fostering medication safety and effectiveness, ensuring continuous quality improvement, and facilitating desired patient health outcomes.
ASPcares- Sugarland is one of 28 locations nationwide. The company is made up of a team who thrives on ensuring the highest quality of care for its patients. Some of ASPcares- Sugarland’s services include customized patient monitoring, maintenance of patient medications and adherence, cost management, disease and treatment education at the initiation of therapy, and clinical assessments performed throughout our patients’ treatment regimens.
Specialty medications are often expensive, require unique handling procedures, and involve complex treatment regimens that require ongoing clinical monitoring and patient education. “Ensuring that specialty pharmacies provide services that help patients achieve desired, cost-effective outcomes is a key component of CPPA’s specialty pharmacy accreditation,” said CPPA Chairman and APhA Executive Vice President and CEO Thomas E. Menighan. “CPPA’s accreditation of ASP Cares Specialty Pharmacy provides an important recognition that its pharmacy services support these goals.”

The Center for Pharmacy Practice Accreditation (CPPA) is a nonprofit organization established in 2012 through a partnership of the American Pharmacists Association (APhA), the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP), and ASHP (American Society of Health-System Pharmacists) to recognize pharmacy practices for providing patient care services that improve health outcomes and contribute to lower health care costs. The CPPA mission, unique among accreditors, is to raise the level of pharmacy-delivered patient care services through accreditation and, thus, serve the public health. These three organizations saw a need to establish standards to meet the public’s need for specific, predictable, and measurable pharmacist clinical services across the medication use continuum.
