Capture share of specialty infusion opportunity and deliver a superior patient experience.
Home infusion pharmacies not only provide patients with increased convenience, they also free up beds and cost significantly less than traditional infusion in a hospital-based setting. With the growing incidence of chronic diseases, the industry shift toward value-based care, and increasing scrutiny surrounding site-of-care reimbursements, expansion into home infusion is a natural next step for health systems looking to deliver a superior infusion patient experience.
