Global Home Infusion Therapy Market, By Product Type (Infusion Pumps (Ambulatory Infusion Pumps, Insulin Pumps, Syringe Pumps, Elastomeric Pumps, Patient Controlled Analgesics (PCA), and Volumetric Pumps), Intravenous Sets, IV Cannulas, and Needleless Connectors), By Application (Chemotherapy, Diabetes, Hydration Therapy, Pain Management, Post-transplant Therapies, Parenteral Nutrition Therapy, and Others), and By Region (North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East, and Africa), is estimated to be valued at US$ 1,995.3 million in 2020 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 6.5% during the forecast period (2020-2027), as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.
Currently available long term vascular access and infusion devices have limitations associated with catheters. These limitations include catheter associated infections, which can lead to several complications, including death.
Moreover, these devices require regular flushes and cleaning to clear stagnant blood flow, prevent clot formation and occlusion. However, even after cleaning and taking precaution, these devices become clogged due to blood clots.
These situations are often tackled by using clot-dissolving agents or removal and implantation of a new device, and most of them require surgical intervention for placement and removal. This increases healthcare costs for the patients as well as the healthcare facility.
For these issues, development of implantable infusion devices is a substantial opportunity for key players. Manufacturers such as PAVmed, Inc. have already developed an implantable device (PortIO) which is undergoing clinical trials.
PortIO, an implantable intraosseous vascular access device developed by PAVmed, has achieved a maintenance-free implant duration of over six months in studies, which directly clears all the above mentioned issues with currently available long term vascular access devices.
Global Home Infusion Therapy Market – Impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic
In the wake of COVID-19, many people had to be hospitalized and often needed to be placed on ventilator support. This requires significant space in hospitals in order to avoid disease transmission to other patients and health care providers. To help hospitals adjust to the increased need for space and beds, many companies are working with healthcare institutions to transition patients from the hospital to home care as quickly as possible.
Home infusion is the administration of drugs to an individual in their own home. The components needed for home infusion are the drug, supplies, equipment, and nursing services. Nurses go to the homes to train and educate the patient and/or caregiver on the proper administration of the home infusion therapy.
In June 2020, Option Care Health, a company focused on providing home infusion services to increase hospital bed capacity and use hospital resources for patients with COVID-19, developed a personalized care plan with physicians, prepared the needed medication for home infusion, and distributed and supplied it to patients' home. The company trained nurses to educate the patient and/or caregiver on self-administration of their medication.
