Chronic Inflammatory Disorders

Infusion Therapy Plus

Option Care is the leader in treating a variety of chronic-inflammatory-associated conditions providing innovative infusion therapies for the successful treatment of patients with Chronic Inflammatory Disorders. We offer patients and providers a choice of where to receive treatment – in our ambulatory infusion suites or in the patient’s home. Option Care has over 100 Ambulatory Infusion Suites (AIS) throughout the country where our expert clinicians, with over 40 years of experience managing more than 100,000 biologic therapy infusions annually, manage infusion therapy for patients.

Option Care conducted an independent Infliximab infusion safety study. Our results confirm previously published findings that home and ambulatory infusion suites (AIS) are safe settings for Infliximab administration¹. After treating 291 unique atients, representing 1,866 infusions over the course of two years, none of the infusions were associated with a severe adverse drug event.

Demonstrated industry leader in Chronic Inflammatory Disorder (CID) infusion therapy

Time-­saving intake coordination
Option Care specialists confirm insurance benefits and respond to referral requests within 2 hours.* We start therapy for 9 out of 10 patients who are referred to us, and we can start a targeted therapy at an AIS or home within 24 hours, which helps avoid hospitalizations. This high start rate is achieved by facilitating insurance verification, connecting patients to appropriate financial assistance resources, and reviewing coverage and care with patients.

Individualized care plans
Many CID infusions can be safely administered at an AIS or home. We customize chronic inflammatory treatment plans to the specific needs of each patient. Our pharmacists conduct a full case review and consult with prescribing physicians and healthcare providers as needed to ensure appropriate medication choices or suggest treatment adjustments. We adapt the established protocols to meet your requirements while helping to achieve optimal treatment outcomes.

Clinical monitoring and reporting
Specialized nurses monitor and track patients throughout the infusion treatment. Option Care notifies physicians of adverse changes in patient status and provides routine updates at intervals designated by the physician or healthcare provider. Option Care has local data available to help prescribers gauge and improve quality of care, and to avoid health system penalizations.

Long-term support and education
Option Care infusion nurses counsel patients and caregivers on home infusion, self-care and monitoring tools, and proper hygiene maintenance. When it comes to infusion therapy our dedication to optimal outcomes allows patients to achieve their health care goals. Option Care provides 24/7 patient support with experienced clinicians.
