If You Are A Patient

A team of health care professionals is dedicated to making your transition from hospital to home easy. Your physician has customized a home health care plan so you can continue your IV medications at home with the help of Clinical Specialties. As a leader in home infusion therapy, Clinical Specialties will provide your IV medications and supplies, as well as coordinate the home health care services you need.

What is Home Infusion (IV) Therapy?

Home IV therapy involves administering medication through the vein or intravenously (IV). Your physician prescribed IV medication because it is more effective than taking medication by mouth. IV therapy is a safe and effective alternative to inpatient care, with over 2 million patients receiving home infusion therapy every year.

What You Can Expect

Before you leave the hospital, Clinical Specialties will work with your physicians, home care nurse, and insurance company to coordinate your in-home care
  • Treatment Plan - Clinical Specialties will contact you to arrange home delivery of your medications and supplies, schedule the first visit from your home care nurse, and answer your questions regarding your treatment plan.
  • Home Delivery - Clinical Specialties' representatives will deliver your medications and supplies to your home. For your convenience and to respect your privacy, we will call first and arrive in an unmarked vehicle.
  • Nursing Care - An experienced, dedicated nurse will visit you in your home to provide the care you need as well as teach you or a caregiver how to administer your IV medications.
  • 24/7 Support - We will work closely with you, your physician, and home care nurse to ensure that you have all the supplies and support to be comfortable with your IV therapy at home. In fact, our pharmacy staff will call you regularly during your course of treatment to review your progress and be sure you have everything you need.
