NHIA offers conference, workshops, new book

The National Home Infusion Association (NHIA) annual conference in Cincinnati, May 17-20, 2000, will feature educational programs on operational, clinical, reimbursement, marketing, and business topics.

The annual conference includes the high-level executive conference; two program workshop tracks on management and clinical operations; the NHIA trade exposition; industry-sponsored symposia, and networking events. The conference is the association’s primary business and political meeting, offering opportunities to participate in committee and task force activity to address current issues in infusion therapy.

NHIA provides information, education, and legislative and regulatory representation to the nation’s approximately 5,000 home infusion therapy companies nationwide.

Home infusion therapy involves the administration of intravenous medications in home and other outpatient settings, representing a cost-effective and patient-preferred alternative to inpatient care. Today, home infusion therapy represents approximately $4 billion in annual health care expenditures.
