CPS Awards and Appreciation

The Colorado Pharmacists Society (CPS) is a multi-awarded association of pharmacists in Colorado. The following are the past awards that the CPS has garnered.

 2022 ASHP Board of Directors’ Pharmacy Champion Award

The American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) Board of Directors Pharmacy Champion Award recognizes leadership in advocacy and public policy that contributes to significant improvements in patient care, drug safety, medication-use outcomes, and advances the vital roles pharmacists play as patient care providers.

Colorado Pharmacists Society won the award for leading the coalition involved in the passage of H.B. 21-1275, Medicaid Reimbursement for Services by Pharmacists

"A coalition of pharmacy and healthcare professionals led by the Colorado Pharmacists Society worked closely with state legislators to secure passage of legislation that requires Medicaid to reimburse pharmacists for clinical services under the medical benefit, including the provision of advanced clinical services under collaborative practice agreements or statewide protocols. This group of dedicated pharmacy and healthcare leaders executed a concerted, highly organized, and effective effort to improve patient access to primary care and add to the growing list of states expanding patient access to pharmacists’ services." —Kate Traynor
