PMD Healthcare Announces Collaboration with OptiMed Specialty Pharmacy
Date:9/18/2017

ALLENTOWN, Pa. and KALAMAZOO, Mich., Sept. 18, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- PMD Healthcare of Allentown, Penn., and OptiMed Specialty Pharmacy of Kalamazoo, Mich., have announced a business partnership to offer a strategic hub service that expedites and streamlines patient and provider access to PMD Healthcare's highly sought-after 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.  PMD's Spiro PD 2.0, however, allows patients to perform this important testing anytime with 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 prescription fulfillment and product delivery is simple, efficient, and effective for patients.  

"We are excited about this collaboration and confident that OptiMed's highly trained clinical pharmacists, nurses, and medical and pharmacy claims benefit experts will provide patients and providers with a seamless and effortless approach to product and service fulfillment," said Steve Sullivan, PMD Healthcare's EVP and Chief Commercial Officer.

"At OptiMed, we see this strategic partnership as a natural fit as we focus on the small details that create customized solutions to improve the patient experience and ultimately the care that patients receive," added Andy Reeves, RPh, CEO of OptiMed Specialty Pharmacy.

For more information about the Spiro PD 2.0, contact PMD Healthcare at 888-763-4968. For more information about patient services or benefits, contact OptiMed Specialty Pharmacy at 877-232-2857.
