The COVID-19 pandemic has especially affected the millions of Americans diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder. Many of these patients receive ongoing biologic therapy to maintain their health and quality of life. As these immunocompromised patients are at heightened risk from COVID-19 exposure, many have chosen to postpone treatment to avoid the shared infusion room often located hundreds of steps inside a hospital or other shared health hub. For example, a recent study revealed there was a 70% increase in therapy nonadherence of infusible biologics during the pandemic for patients with IBD (inflammatory bowel disease).
In contrast, IVX Health provides patients with a safe, convenient alternative to receive infusion or injection therapy. Each IVX center is intentionally designed to meet the unique needs of those with complex chronic conditions. Stand-alone facilities, private suites, parking directly out front, and visits by appointment only are just a few ways IVX Health has always aimed to provide the safest experience possible for its patients. In addition, IVX Health offers patients a superior level of service – with flat screen TVs, high-speed Wi-Fi, complimentary snacks, and flexible appointment times that include evenings and Saturdays.
“I have been receiving infusions from IVX Health for a little over a year,” said Cam Wiggins, a patient at IVX Health in Kansas City. “The staff made me feel right at home by genuinely caring and being interested not only in my health, but also my goals and aspirations in life. I love being able to relax in the privacy of my own suite, kickback and catch up on shows or a movie. I am grateful for everything IVX has done to help me stay on track in living a healthy, full, and great life.”
“We couldn’t be more thrilled that IVX Health is now part of the Indianapolis healthcare community,” said Doug Ghertner, CEO of IVX Health. “We look forward to introducing patients and their referring specialists to a more convenient, private site of care option that delivers a personalized, world-class experience. Our clinical model is also intentionally designed to complement and improve physician practices – with our proficiency and expertise in facilitating prior authorizations and benefits eligibility processes.”
IVX Health currently has 45 centers operating across 14 metros in the United States. For more information on IVX Health’s Indiana locations or to schedule an appointment, please visit the company’s website.
