Who We Are

CPESN® Mississippi is a premiere professional network of community- based pharmacies collaborating to optimize appropriate medication use to promote positive patient health outcomes. 

What We Do

All pharmacies are NOT the same. Some pharmacies focus on filling prescriptions as fast and as cheaply as they can. CPESN® Mississippi pharmacy providers are different. They use the dispensing process to engage patients in quality healthcare that produces positive clinical outcomes. It’s time to turn to local care providers with local roots in the community, local relationships with care team members, and the ability to engage patients locally.

CPESN Mississippi welcomes participating pharmacies with interest in delivering patient-centered quality of care exceeding traditional pharmacy dispensing services.

Local Network Requirements

Our pharmacies are equipped to provide the following services in a similar fashion:

  • Comprehensive Medication Management
    • Medication Reconciliation: Upon referral, compare a patient’s new medication orders to a comprehensive list of existing medications that the patient has been taking (active, chronic as needed, and nonprescription including herbals and other dietary 6 supplements) to determine potential DTPs and to avoid medication errors
    • Comprehensive Medication Reviews: Provide a systematic assessment of patient-specific information including all medication therapies to identify DTPs, develop a prioritized list of DTPs, and create a patient specific plan to resolve DTPs, document the plan and disseminate appropriate information to the patient’s other health care providers
    • Personal Medication Records: Provide patients with a personal medication record (PMR). A PMR is a comprehensive record of the patient’s active medications (prescription and nonprescription medications, herbal products, and other dietary supplements)
  • Medication Adherence Program

    Medication Adherence is the proactive process of timing a patient’s routine refills with targeted interventions from the pharmacist that focuses on progression toward desired therapeutic goals. 

    The purpose of medication synchronization is to ensure that patients are refilling and taking their medications as prescribed and to ensure that patients are achieving therapeutic goals with safe and effective medications. This process is not to be confused with automatic refill. This service may also include adherence packaging in which the pharmacy fills medications in a pill box, cold-or heat-sealed blister pack, or other adherence device that is personalized and timed for each specific patient.

  • Immunizations

    The ability to actively screen patients and provide Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) recommended immunizations (or at a minimum refer to another provider) including influenza, pneumococcal (both conjugate and polysaccharide), Tdap, and herpes zoster immunizations.
