Phase I: 2010 NHIA Provider Survey
The first phase of the NHIA Industry-Wide Data Initiative was formally launched on January 27th, 2010, with the Phase I Provider Survey. The survey compiled national statistics from across the full spectrum of alternate-site infusion organizations including single site, multi-site and national health care providers of infusion therapy. A first of its kind, the final report provided an in-depth analysis of multiple data points such as the number of patients by age and therapy categories; revenue by therapy and payer type and full-time equivalent staffing for key positions; and providers' pump utilization.
The "The NHIA Industry-Wide Data Initiative Phase I: 2010 NHIA Provider Survey Comprehensive Aggregate Analysis Report" was published to enable alternate-site health care providers to benchmark themselves against a "typical home infusion provider location," and to further refine their comparisons based on provider type: single-site, multi-site or national.
- In 2008, 730 NHIA member provider locations administered approximately 1.24 million therapies to an estimated 829,000 unique patients, with an average of 1.5 therapies per patient.
- NHIA member provider locations earned a combined total revenue of between $4.5 and $6.5 billion and employed between 15,000 and 20,000 full time equivalent staffing positions in 2008.
