ASHP Pharmacy Practice Services Accreditation is the gold standard to which all pharmacy practices strive to achieve. Our 75+ years of pharmacy knowledge and accreditation expertise demonstrates our long history of defining best practices and implementing the highest practice standards. These standards reflect national quality initiatives and contemporary and future practices of pharmacy. The process is designed to be easy to understand, flexible, and consultative in nature. The accreditation process can be tailored to different models of care.

ASHP accredits the following practice areas:

  • Specialty Pharmacy
  • Community/Outpatient Pharmacy
  • Telehealth Pharmacy

"Accreditation has become an important differentiator for specialty pharmacy practices to demonstrate high standards in the provision of quality patient care and meaningful patient care outcomes. This has become vitally important for specialty pharmacies, including those that are part of health systems, as they seek inclusion in payer and manufacturer specialty pharmacy networks. The standards and accreditation process reflect national quality initiatives and contemporary and future practices of specialty pharmacy."

--Paul W. Abramowitz, ASHP Chief Executive Officer, Pharm.D. Sc.D (Hon.), FASHP.
