by NCPA | Dec 03, 2018

Each week, NCPA will feature a CPESN Luminary to highlight important, ongoing work in local networks and why being a part of CPESN Networks is valuable to their pharmacy business. Luminaries are pharmacists who light the way for others as they join and build an enhanced network. CPESN Luminary spotlight: Emily Prohaska

Emily Prohaska is a pharmacy clinical services coordinator at Balls Food Stores in Kansas City, Kan. – and a CPESN Kansas. "The CPESN Kansas network launch in December 2017 came with a time-sensitive component and the response from pharmacies across the state was tremendous," according to Prohaska. CPESN Kansas is very close to achieving geographic network adequacy and all of the luminaries are working hard on continuous recruitment. "We are proud of all of our participating pharmacies across the state!"

Like many other networks, establishing a payer contract with a "go-live" date in early 2019 is the most important focus of CPESN Kansas. "Our luminaries have participated in a number of promising conversations and we are very hopeful to have one or more contracts in place for plan year 2019," Prohaska said.
