Time-saving intake coordination
All immunoglobulin therapy patients who are referred to Option Care begin their intake process through one of our IG Centers of Excellence, where our intake specialists verify insurance eligibility and secure health plan authorization for patients. Our insurance and reimbursement assistance saves prescribers time so that patients can start treatment sooner.
Individualized care plans
Option Care provides personalized medical care that is anchored by a dedicated IG nurse and IG pharmacist. Every patient receives a disease-specific, customized care plan that is focused solely on meeting the needs of the patient and his or her care team. Each home infusion is administered by a trained IG nurse, and treatments can be administered in the most convenient setting—at home, in a physician’s or healthcare provider’s office, or in a nearby infusion suite.
Clinical monitoring and reporting
Option Care conducts evaluations and provides patient management for all IG patients through PartnerPoint Clinical Management®. PartnerPoint helps clinicians demonstrate response to therapy and identify the therapeutic regimens that optimize patient outcomes. Ongoing evaluations keep prescribing physicians informed and alert to additional needs for patient support beyond IG therapy, like psychosocial or nutritional support.
Long-term support and education
Option Care is built on long-term nursing relationships, ensuring that patients receive personalized and expert nursing care. In addition, our regional IG Centers of Excellence provide ongoing patient management, comprehensive patient and caregiver educational resources, and 24/7 patient support.

PartnerPoint is a patient-reported outcomes measure (PROM) administered to IG patients during intake and at each home visit. The nurse (or pharmacist) conducts a clinical interview with patients and collects the data at the site of care. Option Care makes the clinical management data reportable and accessible to prescribing physicians, thereby increasing their ability to manage adverse drug reactions, monitor patient quality of life, optimize dosing, and demonstrate response to therapy.
PartnerPoint is a best-practice IG patient management program that optimizes therapeutic regimens and patient outcomes by increasing communication across all members of a patient’s care team and providing more opportunities for critical clinical interventions. PartnerPoint provides disease-specific patient outcomes data for more than 10 conditions, including chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP), multifocal motor neuropathy (MMN), and primary immunodeficiency disease (PID).
Reliably assess patients in the home setting
The results of our in-home evaluations are consistent with those performed by physicians.
