Today’s patients want their care to be timely, connected and sensitive to their needs. They want the “human touch” and, as much as possible, to feel heard along their healthcare journey. In our technological age, however, this has become more challenging.

This article shows pharmacists and other stakeholders how enlisting the help of a patient management organization that specializes in care coordination can be particularly effective for patients with chronic disease or a rare disease, and enables the entire care team to more efficiently identify the most optimal therapy.
