Dermatology

Psoriasis is a chronic disease that develops when the immune system sends faulty signals that tell skin cells to grow quickly and abnormally. New skin cells form in days rather than weeks in a disorganized manner that can damage healthy tissue and cause serious discomfort. As these cells grow, they pile up on the surface of the skin causing patches or ‘plaques’ to appear. Psoriasis is primarily a disease that happens to people who have a gene that makes them prone to psoriasis. Psoriasis is not transmitted from one person to another by touch and even though it may resemble certain contagious skin disease, it is not contagious.

Most patients suffering from psoriasis will have specific type of psoriasis that can affect treatments and outcomes including:

    • Plaque
    • Guttate
    • Inverse
    • Pustular
    • Erythrodermic

At Paragon Healthcare Specialty, we strive to help provide patients the opportunity to gain access to highly targeted therapies that have been proven to control symptoms of Psoriasis better than traditional therapies of the past.

Our dedicated team of pharmacists, nurses, and technicians are uniquely qualified to assist patients with all aspects of their specialty medications including coordination with physicians and insurance providers, all while providing streamlined, comprehensive care to patients. Best of all, patients have 24/7 access to our on-call pharmacy support team and can expect their medication to be delivered to the front door with no extra costs.

Hepatology

Hepatitis C is an infectious disease affecting primarily the liver caused by the hepatitis C virus (HCV). The infection is often asymptomatic, but chronic infection can lead to damage and even cirrhosis, a permanent scarring of the liver. In some cases, those with cirrhosis will go on to develop liver failure, liver cancer, or life-threatening esophageal and gastric varices that can require significant medical intervention including hospitalization and liver transplant.

HCV affects about 3.2 million people in the U.S with the most common being genotype 1 HCV most commonly transmitted by exposure to infected blood.

Many people with Hepatitis have no symptoms initially, but patients could notice:

  • Jaundice (a condition that causes yellow eyes and skin, as well as dark urine)
  • Abdominal pain
  • Loss of appetite
  • Nausea
  • Fatigue

At Paragon Healthcare Specialty, we strive to help provide patients the opportunity to gain access to highly targeted therapies that have been proven to prevent progression and in most cases cure Hepatitis C.

Our dedicated team of pharmacists, nurses, and technicians are uniquely qualified to assist patients with all aspects of their specialty medications including coordination with physicians and insurance providers, all while providing streamlined, comprehensive care to patients.

Best of all, patients have 24/7 access to our on-call pharmacy support team and can expect their medication to be delivered to the front door with no extra costs.

Rheumatology

Rheumatoid Arthritis is a chronic inflammatory disorder that typically affects the small joints in your hands and feet. Unlike osteoarthritis, which is frequently caused by wear-and-tear of the surface of joints, rheumatoid arthritis affects the lining that protects joints and causes a painful swelling that can eventually result in bone erosion and joint deformity.

Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disorder and occurs when the immune system mistakenly attacks the own body’s tissues. In addition to causing joint problems, rheumatoid arthritis sometimes can affect other organs of the body — such as the skin, eyes, lungs and blood vessels.

Although rheumatoid arthritis can occur at any age, it most commonly begins after age 40 and is much more common among women than men.

At Paragon Healthcare Specialty, we strive to help provide patients the opportunity to gain access to highly targeted therapies that have been proven to control symptoms of rheumatic diseases better than traditional therapies of the past. Our dedicated team of pharmacists, nurses, and technicians are uniquely qualified to assist patients with all aspects of their specialty medications including coordination with physicians and insurance providers, all while providing streamlined, comprehensive care to patients.

Asthma

Asthma is a lifelong disease that causes wheezing, breathlessness, chest tightness, and coughing. It can limit a person’s quality of life and in some incidences cause death. Asthma effects all ages, races and ethnicities. According to the CDC/National Center for Health Statistics (2017) over 18 million adults and 7 million children (younger than 18 years of age) suffer from Asthma. Asthma can be most detrimental to young children living below the poverty level.

Asthma is set off by “triggers”, including environmental factors such as allergies (pets), pollen, mold, cigarette smoke, and poor air quality. An asthma reaction is the bronchi (airways) spasms and constriction (tightening) while an increase of secretion (fluid) production occurs in the lungs. This makes it difficult for the body to properly exchange air (oxygen and CO2).

Our goal for patients is to be symptom free and that starts with education and training. Learning and avoiding asthma triggers is essential. Compliance and adherence to the use of inhalers and oral prescription will create a momentum towards stabilization. Caregivers and family members participation is crucial to Paragon’s Asthma treatment program; which strives to provide a safe and healthy environment for those impacted by this disease.

Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension

PAH (Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension) is a rare (less than 200,000 US lives), progressive disorder characterized by high blood pressure (hypertension) in the arteries of the lungs (pulmonary artery) for no apparent reason. The pulmonary arteries are the blood vessels that carry blood from the right side of the heart through the lungs. Symptoms of PAH include shortness of breath (dyspnea) especially during exercise, chest pain, and fainting episodes. The exact cause of PAH is unknown and although treatable, there is no known cure for the disease. PAH usually affects women between the ages of 30-60 (NORD or National Organization of Rare Diseases, 2017,. PAH: https://rarediseases.org/rare-diseases/pulmonary-arterial-hypertension)

Paragon Healthcare Specialty – Advancements in Medication regimen and options in the last 20 years has made the quality of life better for those living with PAH. Patients once limited to a 24/7/365 continuous, non-stop infusions of a very potent vasodilator (prostacyclin) now, have options that provide greater freedom and mobility. Our goal is to work in cooperation with expert Pulmonologists across the U.S. to provide the best quality of care. Gaining access to all available forms of treatment: SQ, infused, inhaled or oral, is primary in giving our patients the best path forward in combating this debilitating disease.

Multiple Sclerosis

MS (Multiple Sclerosis) is an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system that disrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body. The diagnosis of MS requires evidence of at least two areas of damage in the CNS, which have occurred at different times (http://www.nationalmssociety.org/What-is-MS). The progress, severity and specific symptoms of MS in any one person cannot yet be predicted. Most people with MS are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50, with at least two to three times more women than men being diagnosed with the disease.

Paragon Healthcare Specialty– A holistic approach to the management of MS is the key component to our treatment protocol. Not only is our goal to modify the course or manage symptoms, but to better control the relapsing-remitting episodes’ severity and duration. A team approach to develop a care plan that goes behind medication management but includes exercise, diet and depression oversight provides for healthier and happier patients.

Human Immunodeficiency Virus

HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) a virulent transmittable virus that leaves patients with a weakened immune system (your body’s ability to fight off infections) that’s highly vulnerable to opportunistic infections. It is estimated that 1-2% of the US population may be infected. Once considered a fatal diagnosis; a vigorous pipeline of specialty drugs has dramatically decreased the number of deaths and changed the course of treatment. Though treatment options have advanced significantly, adverse side effects (ASE) and treatment adherence remain the biggest challenges.

Paragon Healthcare Specialty – as practitioners and clinicians our goal is to de-stigmatize HIV and to educate our patients on the necessity of treatment regimen adherence and compliance. Our clinician team works in concert with advocacy groups to educate patients’ caregivers, families and friends regarding the facts about transmission and keeping the HIV + patient healthy. Concerted efforts are made to strengthen the communication between Paragon, prescribing physicians and patient so that ASEs are managed appropriately and alternative treatments (if required) are examined.
