Hometa™ was founded in response to mounting clinical evidence that home infusion is the safest and most cost-effective option for payers, providers, and patients
Benefits of Home Infusion
In 2017, a systematic review of MEDLINE, EMBASE and Science Citation Index articles revealed that home infusion patients were no more likely to experience adverse drug events or side effects than were medical setting infusion patients. Not only that, but their clinical outcomes were as good or better and the patients reported significantly better physical and mental well-being in the home infusion setting. Costs were significantly lower, with savings ranging from $1928-$2974 per treatment course.
Decreased Risk of HAI
Hospital Acquired Infections, otherwise known as nosocomial infections, pose a lethal threat to immunocompromised hospital patients, many of whom require IV therapy. Home infusion therapy mitigates this risk altogether, while also improving medication adherence rates. Walgreens Infusion Services reports a 99.9% adherence rate, <1% unplanned readmission rate and 98% infusions without incident rate on their website.
Home Infusion Cost-Effectiveness
Infusion therapy in a hospital can cost anywhere from $1500-$2500 per day, while the average cost of home infusion costs $150-$250 per day. This is without considering the fact that Hospital Acquired infections cost hospitals $28-$45 billion every year.
