Have you heard about CPESN yet? If not, don’t worry. Michigan Pharmacists Association (MPA) has you covered and will be bringing you more information in the coming year. Briefly, CPESN emerged out of a grant from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation in North Carolina. They began building a network of pharmacies committed to providing enhanced patient care. CPESN defines “enhanced pharmacy services” as “services that transcend conventional requirements of an outpatient pharmacy program contract that are focused on improving clinical and global patient outcomes.” The model in North Carolina is being adapted in other states, and MPA has initiated conversations to learn how Michigan pharmacies can become involved. Developing a strong network in Michigan will require participation and leadership from our community independent pharmacies. Interested? Want to learn more? Look for more information in your MPA communications in 2017 to learn more about how your pharmacy can be part of the conversation.
