Ep 504. Pharmacy Collaboration With Physicians. Meet CareSync Concierge.

Podcast Guests Today

Ken Sternfeld and the Co-Founder of CareSync Concierge, Dr. Don Gudenas, developed a turnkey Telehealth solution to deliver a culture of patient care, compassion and empathy instead of dispensing prescriptions.

“As a healthcare provider in the concierge medicine field, finding better ways to help patients with diabetes is likely a high priority based on the growing number of Americans who are diagnosed with diabetes each year. For patients with diabetes or heading in that direction, medical oversight and personalized care is crucial to help them stay healthy, safe, and supported. Thankfully innovations in digital technology like remote patient monitoring have given Concierge Physicians who have time with their patients, the ability to leverage those resources to help patients reach their health goals and manage their chronic conditions from the comfort of their homes.” ~CareSync Concierge

About Our Guests

Ken Sternfeld is a lifelong dreamer who believes that there is more to get out of life when you focus on helping others. As a son of a Pharmacist, he was inspired by the way his father treated his customers when he visited the store in Jamaica, Queens called Merrick Pharmacy. Customers called him ‘Doc’ and Ken was proud of his father who was helping members of the community.

As a practicing Pharmacist, following in his dad’s footsteps, Ken wanted to replicate the personalized patient care by working on ‘Pharmacy Fridays’ in the office of one concierge physician group, practicing in Long Island. Working directly with patients, Ken was able to take the time and make the time to help patients within the practice to set a new standard of collaborative chronic care management.

Ken expanded the business model as he pivoted during the pandemic to create a cash pay subscription based Virtual Wellness Solution that now delivers Remote Patient Monitoring and Medication Risk Management for patients struggling to deal with their diabetes and other chronic conditions to help them experience a better quality of life.

It was with that focus, that Ken set up a new entity called CareSync Concierge to deliver The DiaBuddy Experience, designed for concierge physicians nationwide to help them enhance patient outcomes and increase revenue with No Out of Pocket Expense to their patients or their changes in their practice workflow.

Using the experience and tools he used at traditional retail pharmacy as a two time winner of the Paragon Award at CVS and as a member of their Emerging Leader Program, Ken and the Co-Founder of CareSync Concierge, Dr. Don Gudenas, developed a turnkey Telehealth solution to deliver a culture of patient care, compassion and empathy instead of dispensing prescriptions. Ken was awarded the Long Island Business News ‘Innovator of The Year and as a mentor who has a passion for educating the next generation of Pharmacists, Ken was honored as the Preceptor of The Year at the University at Buffalo, University at Colorado Skaggs College of Pharmacy and most recently at the University of Maryland, Eastern Shore School; of Pharmacy.

Today Ken lives with his wife Ronni on Long Island and enjoys all the time he can spend with his four wonderful grandchildren.
