Understanding Home Infusion Therapy

Home infusion therapy is the administration of medication through a needle or catheter in a vein and is given in the home setting. Home infusion has been proven to be a safe and effective alternative to inpatient care for many medical conditions and therapy types.

To get started your doctor will send an order to the Tufts Medicine Home Infusion Services pharmacy. Then, our pharmacy team will verify your insurance coverage and estimated costs. We will review your therapy with you prior to starting your infusions and coordinate a home health nurse to assist you with your infusions. We will coordinate a delivery date/time and send your medication and infusion supplies to your house at no additional charge. If your medications require special handling or refrigeration, the drugs will be packaged and shipped accordingly.
