The goal of CPESN® Michigan is to improve quality of care and patient outcomes related to medication use, enhance patients’ overall health trajectory and reduce total cost of care. Key to CPESN Michigan approach is active integration of community pharmacist activity with the larger care team, including the primary care physicians, specialty providers such as behavioral health professionals, and the extended care team of the Patient Centered Medical Home. CPESN Michigan will seek pharmacy participation with those that have demonstrated interest in delivering high quality, patient-centered care that exceed traditional pharmacy dispensing services.

CPESN Michigan was founded in 2018, and is a growing network with 35 participating pharmacies currently.

In order to represent Michigan participating pharmacies to value purchasers and other payers, each pharmacy will be asked to complete two agreements via DocuSign: 

  1. CPESN Michigan Pharmacy Participation Agreement (a non-legal binding agreement between MI CPESN and participating pharmacies).     
  2. CPESN USA Pharmacy Participation Agreement (a legal document between CPESN USA and the participating pharmacy).
