Outpatient Infusion​

Outpatient Infusion

Outpatient infusion treatment is a medical service where certain medications or therapies are administered to patients in a healthcare facility, typically on an outpatient basis. These treatments often involve the intravenous (IV) delivery of medications, fluids, blood products, or other therapeutic agents. Outpatient infusion treatments are prescribed by a healthcare provider and can be administered in a variety of settings, including hospitals, clinics, or specialized infusion centers.

Common reasons for outpatient infusion treatment may include…

  1. Administration of antibiotics for infections that require intravenous delivery.
  2. Management of chronic conditions like autoimmune diseases (e.g., rheumatoid arthritis or Crohn’s disease).
  3. Infusion of biologic medications.
  4. Therapies to boost the immune system or manage pain.


Patients receiving outpatient infusion treatments can often return home on the same day after the treatment, allowing them to maintain their daily routines and avoid travel and hospitalization. The choice of outpatient infusion therapy depends on the specific medical condition and the treatment plan recommended by the healthcare provider.
