Why BOC Pharmacy Accreditation?

BOC's roots are in pharmacy. In 1984, the late Donald O. Fedder, DrPH, MPH, BSP, FAPhA, founded BOC after a successful career as a pharmacist. Dr. Fedder served as BOC's CEO until 2006. Currently, BOC has pharmacy representation on its Board of Directors and surveyors specifically trained for pharmacy. 

BOC Pharmacy Accreditation is offered in conjunction with DMEPOS Accreditation or as a stand-alone product. 

 

The Pharmacy Accreditation Process

Pharmacy accreditation demonstrates that your pharmacy meets standards established by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and the respective state boards of pharmacy standards.

To apply for BOC Pharmacy Accreditation, simply pay the fee and attest to your pharmacy's compliance with the BOC Pharmacy Accreditation Standards Guide

Current pharmacies with BOC DMEPOS Accreditation are able to add Pharmacy Accreditation for free through their current three-year accreditation cycle by filling out the add-on application and providing the following:

  • Performance Management Plan/Medication Safety and Error Reporting Program
  • Adverse Event Log
  • Adverse Event Report
  • Performance Management Tracking document
  • Performance Management Outcomes Charts
  • MSDS inventory which includes compounding materials

Is accreditation required for my facility?

While Pharmacy Accreditation is not required, it is recommended for Pharmacies to improve their business practices, ensure accurate accounting and billing, and develop human resources. It serves as an additional assurance, along with DMEPOS Accreditation, of quality patient care.
