MERCER ISLAND, Wash., Oct. 4, 2021 – CarepathRx, a leader in specialty pharmacy, home infusion, and medication management solutions, now offers comprehensive enteral nutrition services to benefit hospital and health system partners across the nation. The U.S. market for enteral nutrition is projected to grow at a compounded annual growth rate of approximately 8% over the next 5 years. There are approximately 190,000 pediatrics patients and 250,000 adult patients receiving enteral nutrition.
“Currently, most hospitals and health systems are outsourcing enteral nutrition patients to a third-party provider due to the perceived complexities associated with this type of therapy,” explained CarepathRx Chief Strategy Officer Keith Crawford. “CarepathRx offers a simple, turnkey program that enables health systems to establish their own home nutrition support offering that improves continuity of care, enhances patient satisfaction, and allows the hospital to generate new revenue streams.”
CarepathRx home enteral nutrition services include patient intake, onboarding, insurance verification, billing, clinical oversight, and account services. “CarepathRx is there every step of the way,” said Marilee Fritsch, RD, Clinical Nutrition Coordinator at CarepathRx. “We work directly with the prescribing physician to manage first dose, refills, and any change of service.”
