ESPhA's NEXT GEN GPO Strategies
What makes ESPhA’s offerings different from your typical “buying groups”?
We help our GPO members focus on the buy side (wholesaler contracting), the sell side (buy plan maximization), as well as workflow efficiencies (practice transformation) and referral driving opportunities (enhanced services).

One thing that’s not common in today’s drug channel is transparency. However, our buy plan analytics and personal support team can help direct you to your buy plan’s “sweet spot”, transparently. You no longer have to wonder “Should I buy this from my wholesaler or from someone else?” Our experienced team will help you not only maximize your buy plan, but give you key insights into how to efficiently purchase your prescription drug products at the lowest costs, while maximizing rebate opportunities.
ESPhA’s leadership team has a long and diverse history of experience throughout pharmacy and the pharmacy supply chain. ESPhA has negotiated a buy plan that includes a combination of competitive off-invoice pricing, Brand and Generic rebates as well as performance rebates. Our internal analytics team works with our wholesaler partner and our members to make sure they are maximizing each of the buy plan components.
Regardless of the client or the project, our pharmacy transformation expert consultants are always working to increase community pharmacy’s measurable quality, and leveraging the true value provided by community pharmacies to their health care partners.
With an ongoing, sustainable focus on pharmacy education, quality metrics, workflow efficiency, and network building, our team builds 1:1 relationships with our pharmacies and their pharmacy staff.
ESPhA understands that transforming a pharmacy often takes a change in the pharmacy’s culture. We can offer advice on employee hiring, motivating and gaining staff acceptance of new directions.
Through our work with health plans, drug wholesalers, pharmacy groups, government agencies, pharmacy associations, and most importantly individual pharmacies, our team can tie all of the pieces together to create the high performing, high value pharmacy network that health plans, employers, and providers are searching to find.
ESPhA has developed relationships with the best business analyst in the industry. Members of the ESPhA GPO can take advantage of these services to better understand what is driving their profit margin and manage the pharmacy’s business to offer not only enhanced clinical services, but do so in a way that increases the bottom line.
Care planning is a must for the modern pharmacy if they are to thrive in a new value based, integrated healthcare environment. ESPhA can help you with this.
We are experts in not only helping you access eCare plan submission technology, but can also help you work eCare planning into pharmacy workflow. Once care planning is part of your workflow, ESPhA’s team works with you to help you obtain the necessary documentation and certification to support your new ability to perform and bill for enhanced services.
We often get the question, how is ESPhA different than CPESN. Our answer is very different! ESPhA has been constructed as a support vehicle for pharmacies wanting to do more but needing help with technology, staff, workflow process, and meeting/maintaining minimum program standards, etc. ESPhA is not structured to be a competitor to local CPESNs, instead a supporter of and conduit to local CPESNs
ESPhA team members have been on the leading edge of creating, growing, and strengthening CPESN networks. Among our management group are CPESN Luminaries, CPESN Members, and staunch CPESN supporters. Let us help you become and sustain a value driving, opportunity seeking, profitable CPESN qualified pharmacy.
From HIPAA to FWA, ESPhA and our partners can help you ensure your pharmacy is always up to date on your community pharmacy credentialing requirements.
Pharmacy practice is evolving, and so are billing opportunities for pharmacists. Community pharmacists have historically billed for services through the prescription claim submission process for a “service” or “dispensing” fee.
Today, there are many opportunities for pharmacists to bill for services on the medical side of a patient’s health benefit. ESPhA and our partners can help you and your pharmacists through the credentialing process with health insurers to ensure the ability to bill for pharmacy services not tied to a prescription!
