Why Patient Compliance Matters

Chronically ill patients on biologic infusion treatments can have a high rate of non-compliance due to a lack of patient access. Infusions can be time-consuming, uncomfortable, and for many patients, outpatient infusion centers are inconvenient and intimidating.

Non-compliance results in real consequences. In a 2018 study, researchers estimated the cost of non-compliance was $290 billion a year, resulting in some 125,000 deaths.

A significant cost indicator of poor treatment compliance in chronically ill patients is preventable hospital admissions, readmission rates, and emergency room visits, all of which can be minimized if patients adhere to their treatments.

There is an inherent link between patient non-compliance rates and healthcare costs, negatively impacting patient access.

There is a simple solution to this predicament: In-office infusion centers!

How an In-office Infusion Center Can Improve Patient Compliance

Setting up an in-office infusion center within an existing specialty practice can help mitigate patient accessibility challenges and improve treatment outcomes.

Setting up an in-office infusion suite is not a daunting endeavor when you partner with experts like Altus Biologics, who manage many of the daily operations, leaving physicians more time to focus on their patient’s wellbeing.

Here is how partnering with Altus Biologics can take your practice to the next level and improve patient treatment adherence:

Comfortable and Convenient Setting

We create a comfortable, relaxing setting for patients to receive infusion treatments. 

A comfortable setting is critical in providing a positive patient experience, and studies show that positive patient experiences increase the likelihood of a patient adhering to their treatment protocol.

Additionally, patients prefer having their infusions in a more intimate setting that is conveniently located and offers personalized care.

Patient satisfaction has a lot to do with the healthcare staff they interact with. In addition to hiring the most skilled clinical and administrative professionals, Altus Biologics carefully selects each team member to ensure they are the best fit for each practice. And no other in-office infusion management provider cares about patients more than we do.

Physicians who offer in-office infusions have a better rapport with patients as they are readily available to answer questions. Increased communication and frequent in-person interactions make it easier for patients to open up about their symptoms and overall feelings.
