Optime Care Takes Patient-First Approach for Orphan and Rare Disorders

Optime Care takes a patient-first approach for providing personalized medicine as a more precise basis to predict the prognosis of genetic diseases. This model recognizes the important, growing role of personalized medicine, an evolving field in which physicians use diagnostic tests to identify specific, often genetic, biological markers, to help determine which medical treatments and procedures will work best for each patient.

Optime Care is a nationally recognized pharmacy, distribution and patient management organization offering a suite of comprehensive services tailored to maximize the therapeutic opportunities for the treatment of orphan and rare disorders.

The company’s management team has previously partnered in the launch of more than 25 orphan products and consistently implemented the best brand program for the community.

For its pharmaceutical partners that are developing and commercializing personalized drugs for orphan and ultra-orphan diseases, the Optime Care approach streamlines patient enrollment in clinical trials, maximizes interaction with patients for adherence and compliance, hastens time to commercialization and provides continuity of care to avoid lapses in therapy.

Optime Care’s patient-first approach features a telehealth option that is fully integrated for pharmacies to provide care coordination for patients, customized care plans based on conversations with each patient, medication counseling, education on disease states and expectations for each drug.

In partnership with Optime Care, specialty drug manufacturers better serve patients, caregivers, providers and payers to help them overcome key challenges around the complexity of these conditions.

Optime Care points to its specialty Rx pharmacists as a critical part of orphan and rare disease management success. Specialty pharmacists provide much-needed expertise and support for patients every step of the way, advancing the goals of biopharmaceutical companies to optimize the therapeutic value of a specialty drug by ensuring prescription accuracy, compliance and adherence to treatment.

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 is addressed to improve the patient’s quality of life. Optime Care pharmacists also play a critical role on behalf of biopharmaceutical partners, providing ongoing regulatory and operations support and addressing each company’s particular challenges from clinical trials to commercialization.


Takeaway: Optime Care works to meet the needs of individual patients with rare disorders, offering an innovative and unique model designed to optimize data related to personalized medicine in order to enhance and inform health care decisions
