Local Network Requirements
CPESN Florida requires the Minimum CPESN USA Service Set which creates a single standard for enhanced services provision across all local CPESN networks and pharmacies participating in CPESN USA. Current Minimum CPESN Network Service Set (2021) follow:
Comprehensive Medication Review
Offering a systematic assessment of medications, including prescription, over-the-counter, herbal medications and dietary supplements to identify medication-related problems, prioritize a list of medication therapy problems and create a patient-specific plan to resolve medication therapy problems working with the extended healthcare team.
Medication Synchronization Program
Aligning a patient’s routine medications to be filled at the same time each month. The pharmacists will provide clinical medication management and monitoring for progression toward desired therapeutic goals during the patient appointment at time of medication pick-up or delivery.
Screening patients for ACIP recommended immunizations, educate patients about needed immunizations and administer immunizations when appropriate.
Comparing a patient’s medication orders to all of the medications that the patient has been taking (active, chronic, as needed and OTC including herbal) to avoid medication errors. This service is especially important during transitions of care when patients are most vulnerable to medication errors or mishaps.
Personal Medication Record
Providing each patient a comprehensive list of current patient medications manually or from dispensing software.
Providing each patient receiving a dispensed medication from the participating pharmacy ready access to unscheduled face-to-face meeting(s) with a pharmacist employed by the participating CPESN pharmacy during operational hours. For pharmacies not staffing a pharmacist during operational hours, a non-pharmacist involved in the patient’s care must be available for the unscheduled face-to-face visit as well as a pharmacist via appropriate telecommunication methods upon request by the patient or the pharmacy staff-person who provides service in support of that pharmacy.
This is a CPESN Florida-specific minimum service set. Pharmacies need to have the ability to deliver to patient homes in a timely manner.
