OMAHA, Neb.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Amber Specialty Pharmacy is pleased to announce that it has earned the Rare Disease Pharmacy Center of Excellence designation from the Utilization Review Accreditation Commission (URAC). The URAC designation recognizes specialty pharmacies that demonstrate a commitment to quality health services, patient safety and improved outcomes for patients living with rare diseases.
In the United States, a disease is considered rare if it is affects fewer than 200,000 Americans. These populations also have less dedicated money, research, and fewer treatments available due to the low number of affected patients. Amber Specialty Pharmacy’s Rare & Orphan Center of Excellence supports patients and caregivers’ medical, emotional, financial and administrative needs. The award-winning specialty pharmacy is known for their innovative, customized programs that enhance a patient’s care plan and improve outcomes.
"A chronic, complex diagnosis impacts numerous lives – the patient, caregivers, family members, friends, and more,” said Kristin Williams, president of Amber Specialty Pharmacy. “Patients living with a rare disease deserve compassionate care and resources that make their lives easier. We know that when we improve a patient’s life, we create a ripple effect that further produces immeasurable good. The Rare Disease Pharmacy Center of Excellence designation from URAC recognizes that impact and validates Amber’s value and the whole-health approach we offer to our patients.”
