Progressive Care Strengthens Management Team by Appointing Birute Norkute as COO
MIAMI, FL – January 7, 2020 – Progressive Care Inc. (OTCQB: RXMD) (“Progressive Care” or the “Company”), a personalized healthcare services and technology company, is very excited to announce the promotion and appointment of Birute Norkute as Chief Operating Officer (“COO”) of Progressive Care.
“Birute has been instrumental in every achievement PharmCo has had since its inception,” commented S. Parikh Mars, CEO of Progressive Care. “Her accomplishments to date have been stellar, and we see her unique and expansive skill set as invaluable in this new role given both our current needs and opportunities and the vision we have for the Company going forward. We are proud to promote diversity, and we welcome Ms. Norkute to the C-Suite quite simply because she is the single best person for the job.”
Birute Norkute has been a key part of the PharmCo team since 2008 and has been leading PharmCo operations since 2013. She stands out as the driving force behind a number of critical accomplishments. As the chief architect of the operational model for ensuring medication adherence, she successfully produced the Company’s consistent 5-star performance ratings in pharmacy dispensing and medication therapy management.
She has controlled budgetary compliance for PharmCo locations leading to efficiencies often superior to automated systems. She manages all IT infrastructure at the Company to ensure current protocols are in place for HIPAA compliance and technological efficiency. She has lead sales teams in the field and currently leads all operational staff at all pharmacy locations.
In addition, Norkute has been the point person for all credentialing and contracting for all pharmacies and currently manages compliance and audit submissions.
Mars continued, “Birute’s leadership in pharmacy credentialing, contracting, and compliance has resulted in all of our state licenses, our good standing with all PBMs and payors, our stellar audit performance (audit recoupments currently amount to less than 0.001% of revenues), and our top-tier national performance ratings, which have yielded maximum bonus payments on multiple occasions. In short, Birute is a rock star coming into this role.”
