Progressive Care Subsidiary PharmCo Partners with Westchester General Hospital to Implement New DischargeRx Program
MIAMI, July 26, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Progressive Care Inc. (OTCQB:RXMD), a personalized healthcare services and technology company, today announced a partnership with Westchester General Hospital to implement DischargeRX transitional care program. Westchester General Hospital is the first hospital to begin using Progressive Care’s new proprietary patient engagement program, first launched earlier this month.
After working with patients in the hospital setting, Westchester General Hospital has identified numerous readmission risks stemming from post-discharge/transitional care. Their case workers routinely work with patients to minimize these difficulties but have been dutifully searching for an effective solution to transitional care management. Through Progressive Care’s wholly owned subsidiary PharmCo, LLC, DischargeRX will provide Westchester with much-needed support to prevent unnecessary and costly hospital readmissions. DischargeRX will offer hospital patients and physicians access to a PharmCo representative, who will offer medication-related services throughout the patient’s transitional process.
“Westchester General Hospital is looking to interrupt the standard care model and implement innovative solutions. Patients need a reliable advocate and healthcare service provider who can manage and monitor patient adherence and outcomes outside of the hospital setting,” said Rudy Garcia, CEO of Westchester General Hospital. “We believe that PharmCo’s DischargeRX program is the answer we have been looking for and hope that our patients can now look forward to getting even more value when they choose our hospital.”
The partnership with PharmCo will allow Westchester General Hospital to continue its mission of going above and beyond for the patient. The implementation of the DischargeRX transitional care program will help to solve many of the problems associated with timely medication reconciliations, patient consultation and education, prescription access and adherence, and post-discharge follow-ups. Through direct interaction with the patient, PharmCo will provide medication synchronization, PharmCo SmartPack adherence packaging options, and care coaching to ensure patients understand their treatment, stay on track and follow-up with their physicians.
“Westchester General Hospital has devoted many resources to deliver quality care to its patients and believes that healthcare success involves access and engagement,” said S. Parikh Mars, CEO of Progressive Care. “We believe that our customizable transitional care solution DischargeRx will help to reduce readmission risk and improve health outcomes by eliminating gaps and impediments to adherence and access to care.”
Located in Miami, Fla., Westchester General Hospital is a leading hospital specializing in the provision of acute care and healthcare services to long-term care patients and the Miami-Dade community.
