PrescribeWellness Brings on Lindsey (Stephens) Ludwig to Blaze the Trail for Enhanced Services in Community Pharmacies Across Iowa
IRVINE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–PrescribeWellness, a leading cloud-based patient relationship management solutions company that inspires collaboration between pharmacies, payers, providers, pharmaceutical companies, and their patients to achieve better health, today announced the hire of long-time community pharmacist Lindsey Ludwig (formerly Stephens) as Executive Director of the Community Pharmacy Enhanced Services Network of Iowa (CPESN-IA).
In her new role, Ludwig will be responsible for expanding and supporting the performance of the network of pharmacies in Iowa that offer important enhanced and preventive care services. She will also work to identify opportunities for these pharmacies to contract with payers and providers so they can be compensated for the valuable work they do and the outcomes they achieve.
“The luminaries of CPESN-IA have established a well-organized network of high-performing pharmacies, but the partnership between CPESN-IA and PrescribeWellness provides an exciting opportunity to utilize technology to monitor and engage patients while efficiently documenting and billing for provided services,” said Ludwig. “I look forward to working with CPESN-IA and PrescribeWellness to give patients, payers and providers the confidence they need to contract with our network, knowing we can provide valuable outcomes.”
Ludwig’s decades-long career in pharmacy has been focused on elevating the role of the community pharmacist. From her work expanding the services offered at the franchise locations of Medicap Pharmacies, Inc., and Medicine Shoppe International (a Cardinal Healthcare company) to her work as the owner of her own community pharmacy, she has long understood that enhanced services are both an important differentiator from the competition and an asset to the community.
“Lindsey Ludwig will provide the necessary leadership to continue the work CPESN luminaries have started in our state,” said Randy McDonough, CPESN-IA luminary and co-owner of Towncrest Pharmacy. “Her experience as a pharmacy entrepreneur and owner and her years of helping pharmacists transform to deliver enhanced services and scale is paramount for our success. We greatly appreciate PrescribeWellness’ dedication to helping community pharmacies in Iowa make that transformative change. We are excited to have Lindsey on the ground in Iowa supporting local pharmacists as they go ‘beyond the fill’ to achieve better outcomes and demonstrate the power of preventive care.”
