Express Scripts pharmacies awarded The Joint Commission Gold Seal of Approval™
Express Scripts proudly bears the Gold Seal of Approval™ as accredited by The Joint Commission for Full Standards Compliance in Home Care - Pharmacy Dispensing Services.
Joint Commission accreditation is recognized nationwide as a symbol of quality and safety that reflects an organization's commitment to meeting certain performance standards. Only Joint Commission-accredited organizations display the Gold Seal of Approval.
The Joint Commission is an independent, not-for-profit organization established more than 50 years ago. It is governed by a board that includes physicians, nurses, and consumers. The Joint Commission sets the standards by which healthcare quality is measured in America and around the world.
The Joint Commission evaluates the quality and safety of care for more than 17,000 healthcare organizations. To earn and maintain accreditation, organizations must have an extensive on-site review by a team of Joint Commission healthcare professionals at least once every 3 years. The purpose of the review is to evaluate the organization's performance in areas that affect your care. Accreditation may then be awarded based on how well an organization has met Joint Commission standards.
To be awarded the Gold Seal of Approval, Express Scripts underwent a rigorous review and approval process that included a detailed application and visits to Express Scripts' home delivery pharmacies by trained Joint Commission surveyors. The Joint Commission's rigorous accreditation process includes a comprehensive review of 129 standards across 13 areas of focus, including:
On-site audits include facility tours, comprehensive scrutiny of medication dispensing and pharmacy practices, and reviews of equipment, emergency procedures, staffing, and randomly selected patient prescriptions.
Express Scripts is proud to display the Gold Seal of Approval as a symbol of our commitment to providing you with high quality, safe prescription drug care.
