The Challenge

Improve accessibility to infusion treatment in the home

Specialty medications, many of which are infused therapies, now account for 50% of drug spend and are expected to continue to grow at a rapid pace as 65% of new launches will be specialty therapies.1 However, with up to 90% cost differential by site of care, the launch of new biosimilars, and expansion of oncology therapies delivered in the home, expanded home infusion access and an active management strategy can help control costs.2 Members with short-term acute infusion needs, such as parenteral nutrition, or an anti-infective, can lead to longer hospital stays if an alternative site of care is not utilized. Repeated travel to facility locations, and lengthy treatment times can also make it complicated for members with chronic conditions. CareCentrix uses efficiencies and a national provider network to safely relocate therapies to the home and lower cost savings.
