EARTH CITY, Mo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct 13, 2021--

Optime Care, a nationally recognized pharmacy, distribution and patient management organization maximizing therapeutic opportunities for the treatment of orphan and rare disorders, recognizing the importance of October as American Pharmacists Month, highlights the critical role that pharmacists play in supporting rare disease communities across the nation and acknowledges their courage and professionalism during the COVID-19 pandemic. A blog series features Optime Care pharmacists and care coordinators who provide first-hand perspectives on Optime Care’s patient-first approach.

“Our pharmacists and care coordinators are passionate about supporting patients every step of the way so that they can achieve the best possible patient experience,” says Donovan Quill, president and CEO, Optime Care. “This blog series provides testimonials about the effectiveness of Optime Care’s patient-first approach, featuring our team members who make an enormous difference for rare disease patients. People with rare diseases often face numerous complications in terms of dealing with insurance coverage, misdiagnosis and lack of streamlined information – issues that we help them tackle on a regular basis.”

Patients can contact their Optime Care pharmacist 24/7 and benefit from annual reassessments that ensure that goals of therapy are on track and every challenge addressed. Optime Care’s pharmacists offer disease-specific expertise to specialists, which they then share with other healthcare professionals and patients in a way that meets each patient’s particular needs.

Optime Care’s care coordinators provide a level of understanding and knowledge that helps clinicians and patients transcend clinical and communication hurdles. They work with the patient to understand their insurance coverage, financial needs and the financial assistance programs that they may be eligible for to help ensure compliance and positive outcomes.

Quill adds, “The connection and consistency our pharmacist and care coordinators provide helps to foster a sense of loyalty and trust among patients and provides a strong support system. This October, join us in acknowledging the accomplishments of pharmacists and care coordinators, share stories and spread the word about the valuable services they offer.”
