Press Coverage: Medium + Thrive Global The Future of Healthcare with Shital Mars, CEO of Progressive Care Inc.
Leaving our prejudices and preconceived notions of patients and their behaviors at the door. We all have subconscious biases that influence our decision making, but our system is so riddled with jaded ideas of patient qualities that when compounded with medical malpractice liability and profitability concerns, care is being delivered through a very warped lens. It is true that women receive substandard care to men. People of color receive substandard care to Caucasians. Immigrants receive substandard care to native-born. These truths leave large swaths of the US populace without care that meets their needs.

The Secret Behind Community Pharmacy Adherence
Community pharmacists can improve patients’ adherence to their medicines. But how? Shital Parikh Mars explains…In today’s healthcare system, pharmacists play a key role in monitoring patient adherence, which means that the patient is maintaining the proper dosing schedule throughout the medication cycle as well as continuing to take a medication for as long as the treatment is necessary. More so than ever before, adherence is closely monitored with pharmacies and doctors bearing financial responsibility for ensuring patient adherence. Improvements are being made, but as of 2017, 50% of patients are still non-adherent. To address the problem, pharmacists must understand why patients are non-adherent.

The Secret Weapon for Improving Clinical Outcomes and Driving Down Health Care Costs
Physicians prescribe medications for patients in order to manage their chronic conditions which should reduce the need for hospital care. However, if the patient does not take the prescribed medication at the frequency written on the bottle or at all, what had been a chronic condition can re-emerge as an acute episode that requires a visit to the emergency room or a full-blown hospital readmission.
