Frisco’s Soleo Health Obtains Specialty Pharmacy Accreditation with Distinction in Rare Diseases and Orphan Drugs » Dallas Innovates

Soleo Health, a Frisco-based pharmacy service provider, has joined just five other U.S. companies as an Accreditation Commission for Healthcare (ACHC) accredited specialty pharmacy with distinction in rare diseases and orphan drugs.

The accreditation process included audits of Soleo Health policies and procedures, compliance checks and analysis of training tools, and evaluation of its care protocols and care delivery processes.

The company says ACHC accreditation validates its commitment to high performance standards and patient care. Four of its sites – Chicago, Philadelphia, Phoenix and Columbus, Ohio – have all achieved accreditation. These pharmacies have national reach through Soleo’s pharmacy license in all 50 states.

“This accreditation is indicative of our ability to consistently strive to exceed the expectations of our stakeholders, including patients, providers, manufacturers and payers,” said Drew Walk, CEO of Soleo Health, in a statement. “We are honored to be recognized by ACHC with this important distinction, which demonstrates our unwavering commitment to care. »

Distinctions and new services

In addition to its ACHC accreditation, Soleo Health has also garnered attention from the trade media. It debuted on the Inc. 5000 list in 2020 and made the list again last year, at No. 2352. Walk says the ranking recognizes Soleo’s substantial growth since its founding in 2014 and is a testament to the commitment of his entire organization.

One part of Soleo’s growth is establishing therapeutic care management centers to treat and support patients with rare and ultra-rare diseases with specialty pharmaceuticals. Treatment is delivered by specially trained interdisciplinary teams, including therapeutic care pharmacists, registered nurses, reimbursement specialists and patient care ambassadors.

Soleo’s specialties include amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), thyroid eye disease (TED), hemophilia, muscular dystrophy and myasthenia gravis. The company has 20 locations in the United States and a National Nurse Coverage Pharmacy License.

ACHC Program Director Jon Pritchett said Soleo is nationally recognized for its solutions that enhance specialty pharmacy services and improve clinical outcomes.

“Achieving ACHC accreditation confirms their commitment to excellence,” Pritchett said in the release.
