Welcome to Pharmacy Profiles Credentials Verification Service!
What is Credentials Verification Service?
APCI is a subscriber to Pharmacy Profiles Credentials Verification Service which will help APCI and its Choice Member Pharmacies identify, track, and verify pharmacists who are qualified to provide advanced patient care services such as, immunizations, diabetes management and point of care testing. This data is what prospective payers want to know! Streamlined credentials management will make it easier for APCI Choice Member Pharmacies to take advantage expanding scope of practice opportunities. Access to this service is an exclusive benefit for APCI Choice Network Members.
Your pharmacists will be able to regularly keep their advanced training and certificates up to date in the Pharmacy Profiles system. Pharmacy Profiles will be able to document and verify that information. As an owner/manager, you can run reports and leverage this data to differentiate and expand your patient care services. You can set your pharmacy apart from competition in your area!
This service leverages data collected from various data sources, including NABP, ACPE, credentialing agencies, state boards of pharmacy, and the pharmacist. As part of the roll-out, pharmacists will claim their Pharmacist Profiles, a free online tool where they can track and maintain their professional information.
As an APCI Choice Network pharmacist owner/manager, you will wear two hats in the Pharmacy Profiles system: pharmacist and team manager.
