Home infusion therapy helps patients spend less time in the hospital by providing intravenous (IV) therapy in the comfort and privacy of their own homes. Physicians typically order home infusion services for patients with chronic diseases such as cancer, gastrointestinal (GI) problems, heart failure, immunodeficiency disorders, neuromuscular disorders and serious infections. For patients who need it, home infusion therapy is an important part of discharge planning before leaving the hospital.
Baptist Medical Center offers home infusion services through our partner, ContinuumRx. The ContinuumRx team works closely with the patient’s physicians. On the team are infusion pharmacists, nurses and registered dietitians trained in the specialized area of IV infusion therapy.
Highly specialized infusion nurses train patients and their caregivers to help them understand the home infusion process and participate in their treatment goals. The ContinuumRx team of pharmacists and nurses provide clinical monitoring.
