It's important for businesses in pharmacy to show that they have earned accreditation by an industry association for a variety of reasons, including eliciting trust from consumers, demonstrating the following of best practices and a commitment to meeting the highest industry standards, and working to protect public health. Bula can be part of a client's proactive efforts to maintain compliance with state and federal regulations, which is one vital factor in attaining accreditation.

From URAC to Compounding Pharmacy Accreditation (Pharmacy Compounding Accreditation Board (PCAB)) to Specialty Pharmacy Certification (Specialty Pharmacy Certification Board (SPCB)) and others, there are critical elements that a business or professional must meet. A few of these elements might include:

  1. One must be in compliance with applicable U.S. Federal, state, and local laws and regulations. Bula gives clients access to those laws and regulations, full analysis and the ability to receive automated updates to their inboxes. This ensures clients don't miss out on vital information concerning the practice of their businesses, which, if not known, might lead to the loss of accreditation.

  2. It can be ruled that all businesses must also have all locations covered by the accreditation operating under the same policies and procedures. Bula's policy and procedure templates are an efficient way to create a customized manual that documents procedures, outlines business requirements, helps comply with legal requirements, clarifies expectations and reduces new-hire orientation and training time. Bula's Policies & Procedures Template helps clients quickly develop their manual by selecting from pre-written comprehensive policies, procedures and forms created by the Bula team. By creating and disseminating this manual throughout the organization, a business is ensuring they are doing all they can to follow this requirement.

  3. It may also be mandated that a business continually demonstrates commitment to continuous quality improvement in the quality of its services. By subscribing to Bula, a business or professional can easily argue that they are making reasonable efforts to stay ahead of any legal changes regarding quality of care that might influence their operations.

  4. A professional might need to prove they their license is in good standing with nothing pending. In order to be in good standing, a professional must be aware of all applicable rules and regulations in their jurisdiction(s). Bula gives clients visibility into the legal information that pertains to them, so that they can act accordingly
