Medication Care Management™ and pharmacy fulfillment company Curant Health is now one of just 15 organizations to hold ACHC, URAC Mail Order, URAC Specialty Pharmacy and VIPPS accreditations simultaneously.

ATLANTA–(Business Wire)– Curant Health has achieved Accreditation Commission for Health Care (ACHC) accreditation joining CVS Caremark, Humana Pharmacy, OptumRx, Walgreens and ten other organizations holding ACHC, URAC Mail Order, URAC Specialty Pharmacy and VIPPS simultaneously.

“Gaining ACHC Specialty accreditation verifies that Curant Health’s processes, systems and employees are all aligned and focused on outstanding patient services. In addition, this accreditation provides more network flexibility with large insurers and increases our value to new payer partners and their patient populations,” said David Cunnold, COO for Curant Health. “At the end of the day, it allows us to help more patients, improve patient engagement, remove barriers to medication adherence and close gaps in care.”

According to the ACHC, accreditation reflects an agency’s dedication and commitment to meeting standards that demonstrate a higher level of performance and patient care. ACHC Accreditation Standards were created by industry experts with providers’ needs in mind.

Curant’s care management protocols are proven to improve medication adherence, patient outcomes and reduce overall health care spending for all stakeholders including health plans, their sponsors and patients. For our provider partner Cempa Community Care, Curant’s care management program helped achieve 90.5% adherence as measured by viral load for its enrolled population of HIV patients.

“Members enrolled in Curant Health services demonstrated a 43% decrease in medical spend,” said Javier Menendez, vice president of pharmacy operations for Virginia Premier, a non-profit managed care organization wholly-owned by VCU Health System serving approximately 265,000 members. ”We appreciate Curant Health’s ability to improve clinical outcomes while reducing the medical spend and utilization of these challenging patients. They do a great job of getting complex chronic condition patients to take their meds and optimize pharmacotherapy.”
