EARTH CITY, Mo.–Optime Care, a nationally recognized pharmacy, distribution and patient management organization maximizing therapeutic opportunities for the treatment of orphan and rare disorders, is pleased to recognize Patient Experience Week (PX Week), an annual event to celebrate the people who impact the patient experience every day, including nurses, physicians, support staff, executive professionals, caregivers, families and communities.

Optime Care’s patient-first approach impacts the burdens of living with orphan and rare disorders and tailors a proactive service experience for each patient.

“This year, we are sharing patient testimonials, celebrating our accomplishments, re-energizing efforts and honoring the people who impact the patient experience,” says Donovan Quill, president and CEO, Optime Care. “Our model includes targeted programs, services and specialized expertise that transcends the limitations of traditional, legacy care organizations that often fail to fully address the needs of patients with orphan and rare disease.”

Working with Optime Care has really been great. They are incredibly supportive and always there when I have questions or concerns. It’s been comforting to have them every step of the way, especially when I was just starting on my medication. Optime Care has been truly wonderful to work with and I’m appreciative of everything they have done and continue to do. – M.S., a patient with hereditary angioedema (HAE)
