Outpatient IV therapy is now the standard of care for a wide range of infections and disease processes. An outpatient approach to therapy allows patients to returnhome more quickly while providing substantial cost savings. Despite its widespread use, Outpatient IV Therapy is a frequent source of curbside questions and formal infectious diseases consultations. Common concerns are those pertaining to patient selection, antibiotic selection, intravenous access, and insurance coverage.
Outpatient IV therapy is now accepted as standard care in our community. IV therapy may be given through the EOMC hospital-based infusion program.
Outpatient Infusion Services offers several advantages to patients, health care providers,and insurers. First, the length of hospital stays can be markedly reduced. Some patients may return home and resume their daily routine days or weeks before finishing therapy. In other cases, therapy can be started as soon as the diagnosis is made, and hospitalization can be completely avoided. Second, outpatient therapy is almost always less expensive than inpatient therapy.Substantial savings have been found when compared with in-hospital stays.Finally, patients outcomes appear to be very good.
