OUTPATIENT PHARMACY ACCREDITATION
Half of FPs said it is at least somewhat likely that 10% of health-system outpatient pharmacy departments will be accredited by the Center for Pharmacy Practice Accreditation (CPPA) by 2019 (item 8). CPPA accreditation has the potential for ensuring patients and payers that recognized pharmacies are well qualified to provide drug therapy management and other patient care services. CPPA standards for community pharmacy pracgtice are applicable to outpatient pharmacies, and a standard for specialty pharmacies is under development (www.pharmacypracticeaccredit.org)

As you may be aware, ASHP recently joined the Center for Pharmacy Practice Accreditation (CPPA) as a governing member. We believe that the CPPA brings considerable value to pharmacy. Its voluntary accreditation standards will help drive improvements in patient care in and between all sites of care, and, thus, will advance the profession of pharmacy.
