Home Infusion Therapy: A Safe Alternative to Hospital-based Care

averorx circle

Patients who deal with many chronic or complex conditions can benefit from infusion therapy. They have the option to receive this type of therapy in a hospital setting or from the comfort of their homes. Home infusion therapy has shown to be a better alternative for patients who struggle to make it to the hospital or who have compromised immune systems due to their illness. There are many decisions to be made when you receive a diagnosis of an illness that requires infusion therapy. Here are some reasons why home infusion therapy may be the best option for many patients. 

Convenience and comfort 

Dealing with a chronic illness diagnosis makes life complicated. The transition to care can be uncomfortable at best. With home infusion therapy, patients can receive medication that improves their quality of life from the comfort of their homes. Many patients struggle to make it to the hospital, and once they get there, it’s not always a pleasant experience. Having care at home means not having to arrange transportation, pay for potential overnight stays or share rooms with other patients.

Reduced risk of infection

While hospitals make every effort to create sterile environments for patients, there’s always a risk of infection, especially for patients with compromised immune systems. You never know who else will be in the waiting room next to you or sharing a hospital room with you. At home, patients only find themselves around one other person, the infusion nurse. If they’re self-infusing, they don’t even need a nurse to come in once they’re up to speed on taking their medications. 

Receiving treatment in familiar surroundings

Even if a patient goes to the same hospital for every treatment, chances are, they’ll end up in different spots every time they visit. At home, a patient can choose which part of the house is most comfortable for an infusion. They know where everything is in their home, which can make the experience more comfortable and less stressful. Patients with memory problems especially can benefit from having their treatment in the same location every time. 

Safety measures in home infusion therapy

If you or a loved one is in need of infusion therapy, you may be nervous about the idea of having strangers enter their home to provide care. However, home health providers undergo a rigorous screening process to ensure that they can be trusted with your loved one’s care. AvevoRx provides a single nurse for every patient, and that nurse can train them on self-infusion and educate them about their treatments. They can also monitor their condition and how it develops or improves over time. 

At AvevoRx, we believe patients can benefit in many ways from home infusion therapy. Signing up is easy, with real humans involved every step of the way, from home self-infusion training to financial assistance and beyond. Patients with complex conditions, as well as their providers and payers, can count on AvevoRx to provide personalized care throughout the process. Contact us today to learn more.
