Donovan Quill, President and CEO, Optime Care, interview featured on April 1, 2021: Sammi’s Favorite Things: Rare Voices Podcast
In the United States, a rare disease is defined as a condition that affects fewer than 200,000 people nationally. There may be as many as 7,000 rare diseases. The total number of Americans living with a rare disease is estimated at between 25-30 million.
To optimize care during and after the current pandemic, a patient-first approach can enable pharmaceutical companies, pharmacists, physicians, and other members of the care team to better address compliance and adherence to treatment to impact the patient experience and improve outcomes.
This interview highlights the unique set of challenges faced by this patient population and the announcement of Optime Care’s “Rare Voices” Podcast Series Season 2. The podcast uncovers insights from patient advocates, pharmaceutical innovators, leaders in insurance, physicians and caregivers who share their experience and insights about the rare and orphan patient experience.
