Where CMS goes, other payers follow and CMS is pinning virtually all reimbursement to quality and value by 2018. This gives community pharmacy the opportunity to leave the traditional pharmacy carve-out (10 percent of the pie) and try out for the health care team (90 percent of the pie) by proving the value of patient outcomes value, with corresponding payment. Quality metrics have focused the attention of pharmacy owners to set goals in line with population management heath care. So what’s next? Pharmacy owners from successful ongoing networks and newly forming networks will bring you up-to-date on advances and opportunities, as well as highlights of today with a focus on the future. This session will examine how you join and form a network and how does the network changes partnership and reimbursement possibilities.

  1. Evaluate the basic standards common to existing community pharmacy enhanced service networks (CPESNs).
