BioTek reMEDys Calls for Heightened Awareness of Safe Medication Use Around Rare Disease Day

NEW CASTLE, Del.--()--In recognition of today being Rare Disease Day, BioTek reMEDys, a multi-site national integrated infusion therapy provider focused on providing support to people with rare diseases, is publicly calling for awareness of safe medication use for patients with rare diseases and conditions.

“As a specialty pharmacy organization focused on the highly specific needs of patients living with rare conditions, we are well aware of the critical importance of education – for patients, loved ones, caregivers and providers, as well as pharmacists, to make sure that those living with rare diseases get the treatment they need,” said Chaitanya Gadde, CEO and founder of BioTek reMEDys. “Rare Disease Day is an opportunity and a reminder to advocate for rare disease education as a priority locally and nationally throughout the healthcare continuum as we work towards recognizing the challenging journey rare disease patients often have on the way to a correct diagnosis.”

Over 6000 rare diseases are characterized by a broad diversity of disorders and symptoms that vary not only from disease to disease but also from patient to patient suffering from the same disease. Relatively common symptoms can hide underlying rare diseases leading to misdiagnosis and delaying treatment.

The fact that there are often no existing effective cures adds to the high level of pain and suffering endured by patients and their families. Rare Disease Day raises awareness for the 300 million people living with rare disease around the world and their families and caregivers.

BioTek reMEDys provides therapy-specific patient education materials and its National Customer Support Center is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to help patients and their loved ones manage critical aspects of care. By servicing very specific disease states, BioTek reMEDys’ expert team can maintain its focus on patient care – making sure that dosages and treatments are appropriate.
