Navigating Site of Care Transitions

June 16, 2022

The intent of site of care changes is to direct patients to the most cost-effective location to receive their medications, while maintaining optimal clinical care.

Over the last several years Payers noticed that they can get medications infused in the home or ambulatory infusion centers at lower contracted rates then in the Hospital outpatient infusion center department.

Home infusion and non-provider based ambulatory infusion centers have been a standard of care for many products for the last 40 years. Covid 19 re-enforced that more care can be delivered in the non-acute setting. Steve who is an SME in this setting will reinforce the rules and regulations while our member speaker will give examples and case studies to ensure the understanding is there for participants.
