Penn Home Infusion Therapy has a multidisciplinary team. All pharmacists are trained in infusion, and someone is available 24 hours a day. Our nurses undergo up to three months of customized orientation. Each member of the care team is well equipped to assess, educate and care for infusion patients.
In addition to providing education and care, Penn Home Infusion Therapy closely monitors the patient's clinical status, dosage frequency, and treatment efficiency. The expertise and extensive experience of the care team allows them to identify, communicate, and respond to any changes in the patient's status related to the applied therapy.
Penn Home Infusion Therapy is dedicated to compassionate care, and clinical and educational excellence. In order to promote these ideals, we maintain an active quality improvement program to continue our tradition of exceptional care and patient satisfaction.

As part of Penn Home Care and Hospice Services, Penn Home Infusion Therapy is able to coordinate with Penn Care at Home and Wissahickon Hospice to offer a more comprehensive, efficient, and tailored treatment program to home health care patients, even those with multiple needs.
With additional disciplines at our disposal, including rehabilitative therapies, home health aides, social services support and palliative care, we are able to offer greater scheduling flexibility and a wider variety of care options. Because our services are integrated, we are able to exchange information with greater efficiency, and therefore provide better care.
At Penn Home Infusion Therapy, educating patients and caregivers in proper care techniques is our primary concern. To this end, each patient and caregiver receive personal education and an instruction manual tailored to their condition and individual needs. This personalized care plan provides an easy-to-understand resource for the patient, allowing the patient to regain independence as quickly and comfortably as possible.
Penn Home Infusion Therapy can expedite dependable delivery of medication and medical supplies. We operate our own infusion therapy pharmacy (available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week) including a supply warehouse and delivery staff. Medications and supplies can be received by patients just hours after their initial referral to Penn Home Infusion Therapy.
Ease and Convenience
Our centralized intake and access system makes referring a patient easy and convenient. A single call to 866-888-8598 will put a patient's health care provider in touch with an RN trained in all Penn Home Care and Hospice Services programs, and who will be able to triage a patient for all of our services.
Our managed care representatives will take care of all reimbursement issues, from obtaining up-front authorizations to contacting the patient to discuss coverage and any co-pay issues prior to start of care.
