OptiMed Specialty Pharmacy Partners with PMD Healthcare to Offer Patient Care Coordination Hub
Kalamazoo, Michigan – OptiMed Specialty Pharmacy will partner with PMD Healthcare to offer a strategic hub service that expedites and streamlines patient and provider access to PMD Healthcare’s personal spirometer, Spiro PD 2.0, and wellness management services.
A spirometer is a medical device used to measure lung function for a variety of diseases including, but not limited to, asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), cystic fibrosis, idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, and lung transplant. Historically, this type of testing could only be conducted using larger equipment in a medical office. Spiro PD 2.0, however, allows patients to perform this important testing anytime and anywhere using a small, easy-to-use handheld device. The device also provides patient reminders and alerts to help improve medication adherence.
OptiMed Specialty Pharmacy will serve as the conduit between PMD Healthcare and the patient and payer by performing essential patient services such as insurance benefit verification, prior authorization support, patient assistance program administration, and care coordination, ensuring that product fulfillment and delivery is simple, efficient, and effective for patients.
“At OptiMed, we see this strategic partnership as a natural fit with our mission to focus on small details that impact the patient experience and to leverage this personalized attention to detail to deliver customized solutions that optimize patient outcomes,” said Andy Reeves, RPh, CEO of OptiMed Specialty Pharmacy.
OptiMed Specialty Pharmacy is devoted to optimizing health outcomes and quality of life through personalized and coordinated care and excellent service. OptiMed has 20+ years of experience collaborating with providers, payers, healthcare systems and manufacturers, and is one of the first 100 specialty pharmacies in the nation to be dually accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Health Care (ACHC) and URAC.
