MIAMI, Dec. 18, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Progressive Care Inc. (OTCQB: RXMD), a personalized healthcare services and technology company, today announced that it has garnered news coverage in leading financial publications Yahoo Finance and Benzinga on its ongoing work towards ending the opioid epidemic.
“We are honored to have Progressive Care’s efforts toward improving the opioid crisis in such noteworthy publications,” said S. Parikh Mars, CEO of Progressive Care Inc. “We are passionate about providing the public with opioid alternatives to ensure a safer future for our patients.”
In a contributed article titled “If The Cannabis Industry Is Serious About Health Care, It Must Learn From The Opioid Crisis”, published December 14, 2018, in Benzinga, Mars focuses on the future of healthcare and the importance of making it personal and not driven by the same bottom-line logic that helped fuel the opioid crisis.
In the piece, Mars writes: “Technology should make healthcare more personal, not less,” she said. “We want it to be patient-centered care, not patient-burden care.”
Progressive Care has remained committed to taking steps to create a personal healthcare system for the public, most recently with the launch of their 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.
The recent media coverage comes after the company’s efforts to provide its network with more healthcare informational resources through PharmCo Pharmacy. Additional commentary from Progressive Care’s CEO about the company and industry as a whole can be found on the Progressive Care blog and PharmCo blog.
