Home Infusion IG Therapy from Option Care for Amerihealth New JerseyEffective March 1, 2016, Option Care Enterprises, Inc. will be a preferred provider of intravenous and subcutaneous immunoglobulin (IVIG/SCIG) drugs provided in the home* for members covered by AmeriHealth New Jersey.

As one of the nation’s largest providers of home and alternate treatment site infusion services, Option Care’s specially trained nurses and pharmacists provide high-quality, high-touch clinical support to patients treated for complex conditions, including those receiving IG.  Option Care IG patients report very high levels of satisfaction — 98 percent — with Option Care’s in-home visits and ongoing support calls to help them manage their conditions.[*]Option Care Enterprises, Inc. Data on file 2016.

IG therapy is prescribed to patients with immune system-related conditions, including primary immunodeficiency disorders (the body’s immune system doesn’t function properly), autoimmune disorders (the body attacks itself) and other conditions that benefit from the treatment. IG therapy is delivered one of two ways: IVIG is infused through a vein, and SCIG is delivered into the fatty tissue just below the skin. Including IVIG and SCIG, Option Care manages more than 55,000 IG infusions each year.[*]Orange J, Kirkham H, Ayer G, et al.

Home Infusion IG Therapy in Focus

En un estudio pionero reciente, los pacientes de Option Care en tratamiento con inmunoglobulina en el hogar, que reciben un nivel alto de supervisión clínica, tuvieron mejores resultados en comparación con una gran base de datos nacional de pacientes que reciben terapia de inmunoglobulina en otros entornos.

Option Care proporciona acceso a todos los productos con inmunoglobulina, y sus más de 1700 profesionales clínicos, entre ellos, enfermeros y farmacéuticos capacitados especialmente en IGIV/IGSC, brindan atención de alta calidad que comprende planes personalizados de atención, monitoreo clínico de cada infusión y educación integral del paciente y del cuidador.

*Los miembros pueden seguir recibiendo inmunoglobulina por vía subcutánea/intravenosa de los proveedores de infusión en el hogar que pertenecen actualmente a un hospital o sistema de salud y participan en la red de proveedores de AmeriHealth en New Jersey.
