CaptureRx® Applying for URAC Core Standards Accreditation
CaptureRx® announced today that it is a candidate for Core Standards Accreditation from URAC, a Washington, DC-based health care accrediting organization that establishes quality standards for the health care industry. The Core Standards provide the basic structures and process any organization must have to maintain a level of quality expected in a URAC-accredited organization.
“CaptureRx® is setting the ‘New 340B Standard.’ URAC will be another layer of third party review to assure the highest level of service, compliance, and protection to our hospital and clinic clients, our pharmacy network, and most importantly, the consumer patient,” states Edward Gilmartin, President and Co-founder of CaptureRx®.
URAC is one of the four pillars of CaptureRx®’ Compliance, Integrity, and Transparency (CIT) Initiatives, which makes CaptureRx® the most compliant, audited and third party- and client peer-reviewed organization in the 340B administration, data, and safety-net pharmacy networks market segment.

“By choosing to seek URAC Core Standards Accreditation, CaptureRx® has displayed leadership through a commitment to quality and accountability,” said Alan P. Spielman, URAC president and CEO.
The Core standards are the foundation of URAC accreditation. These standards address several key organizational functions that are important for any health care organization, including: organizational structure; staff qualifications; training and management; oversight of delegated activities; quality management; and consumer protection.
URAC, an independent, nonprofit organization, is a leader in promoting health care quality through accreditation and certification programs. URAC’s standards keep pace with the rapid changes in the health care system, and provide a mark of distinction for health care organizations to demonstrate their commitment to quality and accountability. Through its broad-based governance structure and an inclusive standards development process, URAC ensures that all stakeholders are represented in setting meaningful standards for the health care industry.
