Best Pharma Strategies from the Experts

The challenges healthcare executives and administrators face are constantly changing. Host Kevin Stevenson talks with the heroes behind the heroes that are enabling hospitals, urgent care centers and telemedicine operators to spend their time tending to patients, while they handle the logistics.

 

At one point in his career, I Don’t Care Host Kevin Stevenson spent some time on the pharma side of things, in between working at hospitals.

Today he dives back into that world with Donovan Quill, President, and CEO at Optime Care, a nationally recognized pharmacy, distribution, and patient management organization that creates the trusted path to a fulfilled life for patients with rare and orphan disorders.

“What we try to do is create a holistic program for those patients where we combine all the services you would see in a pharmacy in a patient care model,” Quill said. “We try to create a one-stop-shop for patients to really get the care they need from a support standpoint, from affordability, and also to distribute their products to them in their home or site of care.”

“Our patient populations we treat here at Optime care range from 16 patients nationwide all the way up to a couple of thousand.” – Donovan Quill

Orphan disorders and drugs are a bit different from regular pharmaceuticals. Typically, an orphan drug is a treatment for a condition with less than 200,000 patients in the U.S., according to the FDA definition. But, what they do at Optime Care is treat disorders that are even more rare, or “Ultra orphan,” according to Quill.

“Our patient populations we treat here at Optime care range from 16 patients nationwide all the way up to a couple of thousand,” Quill said. “We really try to focus on the patients who need a little extra care.”

Most of the time, the patients they treat have a disorder they’ve never heard of and are treated with a product they can’t pronounce, Quill said jokingly.
