NHIA has been closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation for the home and specialty infusion industry in the U.S. Our COVID-19 Resource Center is updated continually, as new information and resources become available. NHIA created this resource center to support our members in providing quality clinical care in the home setting during this time.
The virus was first detected in China and has made its way around the globe. COVID-19 is classified as a coronavirus. Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses common in both people and different species of animals. For COVID-19, it appears this outbreak originated from an animal source. The virus spreads easily from person-to-person. For our home infusion and specialty providers, we are in a position to assist in treatment of affected patients in the home and prevent them from seeking care in health care institutions. Please view our resources below to learn more.
