MIAMI, Dec. 04, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Progressive Care Inc. (OTCQB: RXMD), a personalized healthcare services and technology company, today announced that it has garnered notable international media coverage in top pharmacy industry publication World Pharma Today stressing the importance of adherence and compliance in the space of medicine.
“We are honored to have Progressive Care’s efforts toward improving patient outcomes highlighted for the second time in such a noteworthy publication,” said S. Parikh Mars, CEO of Progressive Care Inc. “We are passionate about educating the public to be aware that pharmacists play a fundamental role in ensuring patient adherence and wellbeing.”
In a contributed article titled “The Pharmacist Perspective: Medication Adherence & Compliance”, published November 26, 2018, in World Pharma Today, Mars focuses on adherence and its significance for patients who are prescribed medications. Mars also dives deep into non-adherence and how it has caused a tremendous danger to our overall healthcare system.
In the piece, Mars writes: “Pharmacies influence patient behavior, improve adherence, and reduce costs across the spectrum. In order to do this, pharmacists must know their patients and use best practices to achieve results.”
Progressive Care has remained committed to taking steps to improve patient adherence, most recently the company has rolled out the launch of its new proprietary tele-pharmacy software Tele-PharmCo.
The technology will facilitate two-way video conferencing between patients, healthcare professionals, and PharmCo’s team of pharmacists and pharmacy technicians through a secure video interface, allowing patients and their care providers to connect and interact with licensed pharmacists and pharmacy technicians in real-time and speak directly about any medical concerns.
In addition, PharmCo continues to offer its network the most current pharmacological information, a team of pharmacists and technicians highly trained in pain management and compounding and provides physician in-services, educational seminars, patient consultation, and customized medicinal pain management solutions.
