Better Health Outcomes
For people fighting infections or treating a chronic condition, home and alternate infusion therapy can help reduce the risk of healthcare acquired infections which are common in acute medical care settings. Home infusion therapy provides the opportunity to heal in a space where you’re comfortable and relaxed. With sanitary practices, sterile equipment, and medical oversight you can administer your home infusion therapy safely.
Lower Treatment Costs
Home infusion therapy is a cost-effective alternative to receiving treatment in a hospital or clinical setting. Accessing infusion therapy from your home can reduce the amount of time you stay in a hospital which often saves you money. In addition to receiving treatment at home, infusion centers are economical solutions that reduce much of the burden of the cost of specialty medications to the health care system. Many therapies offer Patient Assistance Programs (PAPs), which are created by pharmaceutical companies to provide free or discounted medicine to people who are unable to afford them.
Home and alternate site infusion allows many patients to resume normal routines with family, work or school. Home infusion therapy often saves time by providing access to medicine you need while accommodating your schedule. Instead of enduring hospital and doctor’s office waiting rooms, you can be treated by trained medical professionals in the comfort of your own home.

Budget-friendliness: "Will you work with my insurance to cover most of the cost?"
Specialized services: "Do you specialize in the care I need?"
The team: "Who is on the team of caregivers? Are there team members that specialize in the care I need? Do you offer 24 hour clinical support?"
