What is MO-PCN?

What is the Missouri Pharmacist Care Network? The Missouri Pharmacist Care Network (MO-PCN) is a Missouri pharmacist provider network designed to support, or administer, our state’s pharmacist patient care delivery.  Programs supported or administered include, but are not limited to:

  • Missouri’s Direct Care Pro (DCPro) – State Medicaid MO HealthNet
  • Missouri’s Medication Therapy (MT) Services
  • Medicare Part D Comprehensive Medication Review (CMR)
  • Commercial Sector Patient Care Programs
  • Pharmacist-Delivered Patient Care
  • Prevention Programs: Screenings and Low-Intensity Interventions

MO-PCN connects both payer and provider for the promotion of positive health outcomes. MO-PCN works with pharmacy, academic and health service experts to identify and create value-based intervention program curricula, credentialing and training programs.

MO-PCN intends to offer training to support existing Missouri pharmacist/pharmacy contracted programs and, if needed, has the capability to contract with employers, foundations, program administrators, states and other government entities on behalf of its member pharmacist providers.

Mission and Vision

Mission

The mission of MO-PCN is to engage individuals in the management of their conditions and medications for improved health outcomes. By providing the skills of pharmacists as a healthcare resource, we aim to enhance the quality of care and quality of life for individuals with chronic disease and complex medication needs. This mission will be accomplished through the partnership of Missouri’s pharmacists, health providers, caregivers and communities.

Vision

The vision for creating MO-PCN is centered on the patient. MO-PCN strives to be Missouri’s premier model for pharmacist-led health management services, by reducing Medication-Related Problems (MRPs).

This will be evident by:

• Accessibility to a pharmacist as a health coach for improving an individual’s knowledge and self-management of their chronic condition.

• Community awareness of MRPs and the pharmacist’s role to reduce them.

• To improve medication use through the promotion of safety, effectiveness and affordability.

• Outcomes measurement and findings to be reported to the public, healthcare providers, and stakeholders.

• Close collaboration with voluntary agencies, health professionals, and the industry to strengthen and build a healthier Missouri.
