Impact of BPS Certification

Board certification through BPS is recognized as the gold standard for determining which pharmacists are qualified to contribute at advanced practice levels.  Through the rigorous standards mandated by BPS board certification and recertification, the BPS specialty-credentialed pharmacist stands out as the most qualified to take on today’s expanding expectations of patients, physicians, insurance companies, employers and others who recognize the increasing need for a team approach to healthcare.

Improved outcomes in patient care are the primary purpose of specialization in any health care profession. With BPS specialty-trained pharmacists as part of the collaborative care team, enhanced patient satisfaction has been documented with fewer complications in drug treatment; improved laboratory monitoring; reductions in unnecessary medications; and shorter hospital stays resulting in lower treatment costs.
