Will Offering In-Office Biologic Treatments Lead to Better Multiple Sclerosis Patient Outcomes?
Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a complex debilitating neurological disorder affecting nearly a million Americans.
Neurologists specializing in treating MS are constantly seeking innovative ways to improve patient outcomes and enhance their quality of life.
In this pursuit, newer biologic therapies are emerging as promising avenues for the treatment of MS. Not only do these therapies offer improved safety profiles compared to traditional drugs, but the possibility of offering in-office biologic treatment also provides convenience and a better patient experience that can lead to more positive health outcomes.
Altus Biologics, a leader in biologic infusion management, is the perfect ally in this groundbreaking MS treatment shift.

The Advancements in Biologic Therapies
MS treatments have traditionally focused on disease-modifying therapies (DMTs) that aim to suppress the immune system’s response. These therapies have been adequate to some extent but come with their own set of challenges, including side effects and complicated dosing regimens.
However, with new biologic therapies designed to target the underlying mechanisms of the disease while minimizing systemic side effects, biologic medications provide a pathway to better outcomes, as shown in studies demonstrating improved treatment compliance and outcomes.
Moreover, a study found that biologic therapy for MS reduced the number of hospitalizations and other expensive procedures. This is a critical discovery that benefits patients by minimizing the disruption to their lives and improving their quality of life.
Redefining Personalized Care With In-Office Biologic Infusions
One of the most exciting developments in the field of MS treatment is the ability to administer biologic therapies in a convenient and patient-friendly setting—your existing practice.
Altus Biologics specializes in setting up and managing in-office biologic infusions, eliminating the need for patients to travel to a separate clinic or hospital for treatment. This level of convenience has proven to be a game-changer for MS patients and their healthcare providers.
Deciding to operate a biologic infusion suite out of your existing practice offers you and your patients a range of benefits, including:
Enhanced Patient Experience
Current research confirms a direct link between a positive patient experience and improved health outcomes.
The convenience of in-office biologic infusions significantly reduces patient stress and discomfort associated with traveling to a different facility. Additionally, the added convenience improves patient adherence to recommended clinical practice and medication.
In-office infusions offer a controlled and monitored environment that ensures the safety and well-being of MS patients throughout their treatment.
This level of personalized care can be invaluable in preventing adverse events, ensuring prompt intervention in the case of complications, and ultimately, improving long-term patient outcomes.
