  1. Home drug infusion therapy : A literature update.

    Article - En anglais

    This paper is a literature review and update of home drug infusion therapy (HDIT) in the United States.

    It concentrates on cost-effectiveness studies of parenteral antibiotic therapy administered in an outpatient setting.

    This update is timely because Medicare and other payors are under the pressure of cost containment with respect to this modality.

    Additionally, managed care is redefining reimbursement programs, which will affect HDIT in the future.
