PCAB-accredited Pharmacy Specialties & Clinic of Sioux Falls, SD, achieved an additional recognition in September when it became the first to receive ACHC’s new Distinction in Hazardous Drug Handling (HDH).
The thoughts and concerns of everyone at ACHC are with those in Texas dealing with the horrific aftermath of Hurricane Harvey.

Big news in the sleep world has many providers wide awake. Recent changes to Medicare coverage policies for sleep studies will require sleep-specific accreditation for providers in 13 states. And it’s happening soon.
Effective June 5, 2017, sleep lab facilities in Alaska, Arizona, California, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, North Dakota, Oregon, South Dakota, Utah, Washington, Wyoming and certain U.S. territories will have to have sleep-specific accreditation to be eligible for coverage.
To assist facilities in meeting this deadline, ACHC is offering accelerated sleep lab accreditation.
