This summer, we relocated our National Telepharmacy Center to a larger space in Naperville, Illinois, in order to continue to meet the growing demand for telepharmacy services and provide their patients with direct access to pharmacists through advancing technologies. CPS Telepharmacy monitors over 3 million medication events a year, identifying the wrong dose or wrong drug and provide real-time data on patients, which results in fewer adverse drug events, readmissions and emergency room visits. CPS Telepharmacy functions as a seamless extension of our client’s pharmacy staff and adapts to the specific needs of each facility. “In addition, in 2017 we launched CPS Ambulatory and Specialty Pharmacy Solutions to help our clients build or expand existing specialty pharmacy services. As the need for specialty medications continues to escalate, our clients are seeking help in effectively treating and coordinating care services for patients with complex chronic diseases. The CPS Ambulatory and Specialty Pharmacy Solutions model is unique in that the hospital or health system define and execute a comprehensive ambulatory strategy that encompasses retail, specialty pharmacy and infusion services. A client can rely in whole or in part on the CPS expert team. Our clients benefit from significant additional revenues through specialty pharmacy services along with improved patient care and lower overall cost.” Launching CPS Telepharmacy Suite of Services and CPS Ambulatory and Specialty Pharmacy Solutions address huge issues that pharmacies face today: making pharmacy available 24/7 and managing the cost of specialty pharmaceuticals provided to their patients. This is vital, as CPS has to work hard to remain at the forefront of emerging market developments and continue to offer relevant solutions to its clients. In such a competitive market, the firm sets itself apart by utilising its vast industry expertise and specialist focus, as James highlights. “CPS is unique in that we are focused only on hospital and health system pharmacies and how to improve pharmacy operations in order to impact cost and patient outcomes. Our team is made up of pharmacy professionals who are exceedingly well trained. Many have their Pharm.D. or R.Ph. credentials. We know pharmacy inside and out. But what truly makes us unique is the dedication our people bring to our clients and our commitment to their success and improving their patient outcomes. We think of ourselves as servant leaders who approach our clients with the knowledge and expertise that they need to achieve their operational and clinical goals. But it is because we are invested in our clients’ outcomes, we go the extra mile to find cost savings that our clients did not know was there and improve clinical and patient outcomes. “Solving today’s healthcare challenges requires getting deep into the details to identify efficiencies that not only trim costs but also improve patient care. We can do this because this is all that we have been doing for nearly 50 years. We know pharmacy inside and out. And we have learned how to achieve goals the right way – through hard work, commitment to excellence and innovation of our programs and software technologies.” Looking ahead, CPS has big plans to grow and expand its service offering, as James is excited to conclude. “As we look ahead, CPS’s vision for the future is to “Be the trusted leader in pharmacy services, empowering healthcare organizations to advance the standard of care.” Led by our CEO Calvin Johnson (CJ), CPS has embarked on a five-year plan to elevate our company to the next level as the national leader in pharmacy solutions and other supporting services. By growing our company, our client base and our service reach, we will be able to have an even bigger impact on more clients and the work they do every day.”
