Welcome to the informative page on how CHI St. Luke’s Health - Performance Medicine is revolutionizing the delivery of Outpatient Parenteral Antibiotic Therapy (OPAT) through home infusion. We understand the importance of high adherence and cost savings in healthcare, especially for patients requiring long-term antibiotic treatment. Our infectious disease physician office infusion centers offer a convenient and effective solution for patients who can benefit from home OPAT.
Understanding OPAT and its Importance
Infectious diseases often require prolonged antibiotic treatment, and OPAT is a widely recognized option for patients who do not require hospitalization but need intravenous antibiotics. Home OPAT enables patients to receive the necessary treatment in the comfort of their own homes, reducing the risk of hospital-acquired infections, improving quality of life, and offering significant cost savings.
The Role of Infectious Disease Physician Office Infusion Centers
CHI St. Luke’s Health - Performance Medicine's infectious disease physician office infusion centers play a crucial role in delivering home OPAT to patients. Our experienced team of infectious disease specialists, nurses, and pharmacists work closely with patients and their primary care physicians to develop personalized treatment plans. By combining our expertise with the convenience of home infusion, we ensure high adherence to treatment regimens and optimal patient outcomes.
Advantages of Home OPAT
Home OPAT offers numerous advantages over traditional in-hospital care. Here are some key benefits:
- Improved Adherence: By eliminating the need for extended hospital stays, home OPAT significantly improves treatment adherence among patients. Patients can follow their treatment plans more consistently in familiar surroundings, leading to better clinical outcomes.
- Enhanced Comfort and Convenience: Home OPAT allows patients to receive treatment without disrupting their daily routines. They can continue with work, school, or other responsibilities while receiving necessary therapy.
- Reduced Infection Risk: Hospital-acquired infections can be a serious concern for patients receiving intravenous antibiotics. By shifting treatment to home infusion, the risk of acquiring infections is minimized.
- Cost Savings: Home OPAT can result in significant cost savings for both patients and healthcare systems. Avoiding prolonged hospital stays and unnecessary emergency room visits reduces overall healthcare expenditure.
