Pharos Innovations Joins Partnership to Fight Chronic Disease

NORTHFIELD, Ill., Nov. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Pharos Innovations, a pioneer in assisting clients to achieve next generation clinical and financial performance improvement through a device-free remote monitoring platform, today joined the Partnership to Fight Chronic Disease (PFCD), a coalition of leaders from the healthcare, business, policy and labor communities committed to making chronic disease the key healthcare issue in the new presidential administration.


"We are excited to be partnering with an organization that is successfully affecting change in healthcare," said Dr. Randall Williams, CEO of Pharos Innovations. "The PFCD's mission to educate the public, mobilize Americans to call for change and challenge policymakers on health policy changes is in direct alignment with our mission to transform healthcare through a new paradigm of chronic care management delivery."

Pharos joins more than 80 partner organizations in the fight against chronic disease. The PFCD is working to raise awareness of chronic disease nationwide, with a particular focus on the key primary states of Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina. The partnership is led by former U.S. Surgeon General Richard H. Carmona, M.D. and Ken Thorpe, PhD, chair of the Rollins School of Public Health at Emory University and a former White House health policy advisor.

"The addition of Pharos strengthens the PFCD in the fight against chronic disease," said Thorpe, executive director of the PFCD. "We look forward to tapping the Pharos team's vast knowledge and substantial resources in making chronic disease the key healthcare issue in the new presidential administration."

Chronic diseases are responsible for seven out of every 10 deaths in the U.S. -- causing more than 1.7 million American deaths every year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Chronic diseases are also the primary driver of healthcare costs, accounting for more than 75 percent of the $2 trillion dollars spent each year on healthcare in the U.S.
