A Better Approach to Infusion Care
BioScrip® brings together a collaborative team and information to offer unique perspectives, insights, and truly informed accounts of what’s happening with your patients before, during, and after their infusion therapy.
At BioScrip, we live and work by two simple words: “We’re there.” For patients, we’re in their homes, by their sides, helping them get the individualized therapy they require and the attention they deserve. For providers, we’re your “eyes and ears” on the ground, monitoring progress, exchanging critical patient details, and saving you time.
Delivering a personalized patient approach
BioScrip recognizes the unique needs of cancer patients. Our team of experienced pharmacists and nurses bring our patients and providers unsurpassed clinical competence in providing high-touch, comprehensive infusion services in the most convenient way possible. Whether we are delivering chemotherapy to be infused in the Oncologist's office - or providing infused therapy in a patient's home - our team of trained clinicians is there from the start of therapy to ensure coordination of care. A dedicated intake professional will be assigned to each referral in order to provide optimal reimbursement assistance and support in ensuring continuous access to therapy.
Upon admission to our service, therapy will be monitored by experienced clinicians (pharmacists and nurses) that will coordinate care with patients, caregivers, home health nurses and prescribers to help ensure a successful and satisfying experience.
