What is infusion therapy?
Infusion therapy is the delivery of medications into your body either through your bloodstream (intravenous or IV), under your skin (subcutaneous or intramuscular) or into the membranes surrounding your spinal cord (epidural).
You may need infusion therapy for pain management, dehydration, nutrition deficiency, infections or conditions such as immune deficiency, cancer or anemia (lower-than-normal red blood cells).
With home infusion therapy, most medications can be delivered to your house. Our team of pharmacists and case management professionals will coordinate care with your physician, home health agency or skilled nursing facility.
