Who is CPESN and what do they do?
CPESN (Community Pharmacy Enhanced Services Network) is a clinically integrated network of community pharmacies across the US. A clinically integrated network is a collection of health care providers that demonstrates value to the market by working together to facilitate the coordination of patient care across conditions, providers, settings, and time to improve patient care and decrease overall healthcare costs. The primary objective of CPESN is quality improvement through new enhanced services and improvement on existing service offerings. By being a part of CPESN, participating pharmacies can engage with each other to improve the quality of care offered to patients and to offer value to payers through enhanced services and lower costs. CPESN is clinically integrated which allows its networks of higher quality, lower-cost pharmacies to engage with payers.
What is an eCare Plan?
The Pharmacist eCare plan is a standard that allows pharmacy technology providers to have a common method of exchanging information related to care delivery, including patient goals, health concerns, active medication list, drug therapy problems, laboratory results, vitals, payer information, and billing for services. This will allow for a true collaboration of care between pharmacists and doctors, with the goal to provide better outcomes for patients’ overall health in the future.
