CPESN USA taps Bruce Kneeland to support local networks
Pharmacy veteran Bruce Kneeland is joining CPESN USA to help support local CPESN Networks in Arizona, New Mexico, Oregon, Washington and Hawaii.
CPESN USA is the country’s first Accountable Pharmacy Organization helping community-based pharmacy networks provide high quality, patient-centered enhanced services.
“We are excited that Bruce has decided to join us and help accelerate the CPESN movement in some of our states out West,” said CPESN USA executive director Troy Trygstad. “Not only does Bruce possess an impressive background working in the pharmacy industry (with the likes of AmerisourceBergen and Health Mart), he also has developed strong relationships with pharmacy leaders through his countless road trips visiting community-based pharmacies.”
Currently, 2,500 local, community pharmacies participate in 49 CPESN networks in 45 states across America.
“Community retail pharmacy has changed a lot over the past few years, but, as we’ve all been told, change provides opportunity,” Kneeland said. "I believe the tools CPESN USA has championed prove that there is a sustainable path forward for pharmacy. I look forward to working with local network leaders to help participating pharmacies take advantage of the programs CPESN USA has developed and in helping many more pharmacies grow by providing healthcare services people need in a pleasant and convenient setting.”
