CPS helps hospital pharmacists tackle complex problems such as medication reconciliation, hyper-inflated drug costs, standardization, centralized distribution, regulatory & compliance, and 340B programs leading to increased quality, reduced admissions and lower costs. Services provided by CPS include pharmacy management, pharmacy consulting, specialized pharmacy services, telepharmacy, 340B program compliance assurance, ambulatory & retail pharmacy services, medication related transition of care, and pharmacy analytics.
We offer a full range of pharmacy services, including in-house and off-site models, backed with tremendous purchasing power.
In-house Pharmacy Management
Through our in-house pharmacy management program, we provide a comprehensive package of pharmacy services, including clinical initiatives and The Joint Commission compliance programs. CPS can employ the entire pharmacy staff and provide access to our national volume-purchasing program, which is backed by over one billion dollars in annual purchases. We can also furnish computer and automated dispensing systems. CPS's in-house pharmacy option is a perfect model for long-term acute care or full-service hospitals, of all sizes.
Off-site Pharmacy Management
Our off-site pharmacy model is designed for small and rural hospitals, behavioral health, rehabilitation, subacute hospitals and long-term care facilities. This model is designed to minimize in-house inventory management costs, reduce a hospital's overall pharmacy budget and provide superior pharmacy clinical services through our regional network.
Customized Pharmacy Management
Our customized solutions may include versions of either in-house and off-site pharmacy models or a combination of an in-house pharmacy staff with off-site inventory management.
CPS's clinical services begin with the tried and true basics of formulary management through generic and therapeutic substitution and extend to best practices and clinical guidelines. Clinical drug monitoring and pharmacist interventions are the norm, not the exception. Our pharmacists work within the interdisciplinary teams of the hospital to oversee and improve the medication management process.
