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 Schraft’s 2.0.
Adam Hait, president of Schraft’s 2.0 stated, “Schraft’s is honored to join this elite group of pharmacy practitioners”.
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.
Schraft’s 2.0 is one of the nation’s premier suppliers of fertility medications. Schraft’s 2.0 patient centric model is highlighted by their “OTB®” or Open the Box® program. This program has a registered nurse or pharmacist review all medications and supplies with the patient once the order is received.
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 Schraft’s 2.0 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.
