CPESN ® Pharmacies and Local Network Leadership:

Welcome to CPESN U.  These informational emails are designed to help you better understand CPESN USA and certain aspects of the pharmacy industry.

Today’s CPESN U is focused on the upcoming deadline to submit a Care Plan by June 30th. Several CPESN pharmacies are questioning the need to conduct care planning in the absence of reimbursement.

We believe that another significant reason CPESN pharmacies need to commence care planning and document the care being provided is that we need to do a better job telling payers and providers all that we do.
We Need to Tell Our Story
Enjoy this short video from pharmacy owner Joe Moose:
Care Planning Reason #2: Telling Our Story

1) Helps others (e.g. payers, providers, employers) understand the importance of community-based pharmacies
Care planning will help them "see" all that we are doing and show them that we are not just filling prescriptions.

2) Offers scalability
Payers aren’t interested in just one pharmacy performing services, but a collective network of pharmacies offers real value. Here are some examples of plausible numbers of patient impact for services that CPESN pharmacies offer patients:  
  • 100 med sync patients per pharmacy, per month x 100 pharmacies in your local CPESN network = 10,000 patients/month who are improving adherence to medications prescribed by their doctor 
  • 15 deliveries per day x 5 days per week of deliveries x 2,200 CPESN pharmacies = 165,000 home visits/week or 8 million home visits/year 

3) Proves what we do 
The standardized format of the eCare Plan Standard within your technology solutions partner’s platform allows us to document what we do to help keep patients out of the hospital and helps improve cost of care.
If you have not submitted a care plan yet, please submit a care plan by June 30, 2019.

How do I submit a care plan? Follow Track 1 after determining if your pharmacy has submitted a care plan ( Track 1 is intended for pharmacies who have not submitted a care plan ).

Determining if your pharmacy has submitted a care plan:

We now have 903 pharmacies that have submitted a care plan! Way to go!

Click  here to see the list of  903 CPESN pharmacies  who have submitted a care plan based on our criteria, in numerical order by NPI number ( this list was updated June 25, 2019 ).

If you believe your pharmacy submitted an eCare Plan, but don't see your NPI listed above, please complete this short webform (click here ) and we will research your submission in collaboration with your technology vendor.
Track 1  
Track 1 is focused on submitting a care plan that is as simple as possible. This can be accomplished by submitting the  sample care plan components exactly as shown in the document. The sample care plan is meant to be submitted by a CPESN pharmacy staff member outside of workflow, so that you’re not having a disruption in workflow as you submit a care plan for the first time.
The goal of Track 1 is to help you submit one care plan.
Please view the sample care plan and download the sample care plan to view while documenting. (Click the image below.)
Below is information from our various Technology Solutions Partners that demonstrates how you can document the sample care plan within their system:
