CPESN of Indiana was formed to improve the health and lives of Hoosiers by providing enhanced pharmacy services that ensure optimal patient care and therapeutic outcomes. CPESN of Indiana pharmacies work together as a clinically integrated network collaborating with other members of the healthcare team to improve patient outcomes and reduce costs so that Hoosiers can “expect more.”
Network Description: CPESN of Indiana pharmacies are an elite group of community-based practices dedicated to providing our patients more. CPESN of Indiana pharmacies have moved beyond simple medication dispensing to enhanced services. We work collaboratively with other members of the healthcare team to improve patient health outcomes. Our goals include contracting with payers to receive payment for delivered patient care services; partnering with health care systems, accountable care organizations, and other key stakeholders; and ensuring that our network is the foremost leader in community-based healthcare. If your practice is aligned with this goal, consider joining us as we reshape the role of the community pharmacist in today's healthcare system.
