Home Infusion Therapy for Cancer Patients

Our home infusion therapy services include:

Benefits of Home Infusion

Home infusion therapy offers significant benefits making it a beneficial and effective treatment option.

  1. Improved Convenience, Comfort, and Enhanced Quality of Life – Reduce the inconvenience and stress of hospital visits, while contributing to improved adherence to treatment. Patients are more in control of their treatment and experience less disruption to their daily activities.
  2. Reduced Risk of Infections– Hospital-acquired infections pose a significant risk to immunocompromised patients. By receiving treatment at home, the exposure risk is minimized.
  3. Similar Efficacy to Hospital Infusions– Patients receiving treatment at home experience similar therapeutic outcomes and disease stability. In 2022, the National Home Infusion Association (NHIA) Journal published a study that showed home infusion therapy to be as effective as hospital-based infusions.
  4. Cost-Effectiveness– Offers patients the advantage of avoiding hospital stays, leading to significant cost savings by eliminating hospital-related expenses while ensuring personalized and comfortable treatment at home.
  5. Improved Treatment Adherence– Research published in the Journal of Infusion Nursing indicates that patients receiving home infusion therapy demonstrated high adherence rates leading to better clinical outcomes.

IV Antibiotics

We offer patient-specific IV Antibiotic Treatment plans developed in collaboration with the prescribing physician, to meet each patient’s individualized needs.

Chronic Inflammatory Conditions

We help treat patients with a range of chronic inflammatory disorders (such as Ankylosing Spondylitis, Crohn’s Disease, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Ulcerative colitis, and Uveitis) via high-quality infusion therapy under the orders of the patient’s prescribing physician.

Immunoglobulin

Our home-based infusion therapy team of skilled nurses helps manage IG patients (such as patients who need support with the progression of neurological disorders like ALS/Lou Gehrig’s Disease and Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy) through focused, evidence-based techniques to help improve outcomes under the supervision of the patient’s prescribing physician.

Intrope Therapy

Unlike hospice care, which is available only during a patient’s final months of life, palliative care is available at any time during the course of a serious or life-threatening illness. Palliative care aims to ease the course of advanced illnesses and to improve the quality of life for patients and their families. Care Mountain’s team coordinates care with the prescribing physician and hospital before the patient is discharged from the hospital to ensure an efficient transition of care into the home setting. Our clinical leaders give patients and caregivers one-on-one counseling prior to discharge and assist with each patient’s transition to an ambulatory pump during the discharge

Parenteral Nutrition & TPN

Care Mountain provides superior parenteral and enteral nutrition care for acute and chronic conditions for adult and geriatric patients. One of the key differentiators is our close collaboration with a patient’s prescribing physician and coordinating care from hospital to home. We provide ongoing monitoring of your loved one’s response to TPN infusion therapy. Palliative care, together with inotropic therapy, allows more end-of-life patients to manage their symptoms with dignity and spend their final days in the comfort of home.

Chemotherapy & Oncology

Infusion treatments are commonly used to deliver chemotherapy, immunotherapy, and targeted therapy to treat cancer. Infusion therapies are liquids usually given from a plastic bag filled with medicine that’s attached to a thin, soft tube called a catheter that delivers the fluid into your body through a vein.

Infusions are helpful for patients with conditions that make it difficult to swallow pills or liquids. Some drugs, like chemotherapy, are too toxic to be delivered quickly and therefore need to be dripped into the blood slowly over an extended period. Some specific types of drugs can only be given as infusions or injections because, if swallowed, the stomach will break them down or they don’t get into the bloodstream through the gut.

For cancer patients, treatments like chemotherapy and immunotherapy are often given by infusion. Chemotherapy drugs are quite toxic to the body, so they need to be given slowly to lessen side effects. However, not all chemotherapies are infusions—some are taken orally. Other types of cancer therapies, including immunotherapies and targeted therapies, are made from monoclonal antibodies. Treatment with monoclonal antibodies almost always requires infusion therapy to administer. Monoclonal antibodies are biologic drugs that must be administered directly into the blood or injected under the skin. Antibodies are naturally occurring proteins in your body and can directly target specific proteins and direct the immune system to attack them.
