Clinical Research

Healix® is a national leader in the provision of infusion therapy through the Physician Office Infusion Center (POIC) setting.  We coordinate and conduct collaborative clinical research in Infectious Disease and the provision of Outpatient Parenteral Antimicrobial Therapy (OPAT). These studies focus on outcomes, with evaluation of efficacy, safety, use, and cost-savings associated with OPAT provided through a POIC.

Healix-sponsored research has been conducted, submitted, and accepted since 2008 to IDWeekTM (IDSA). The catalog of Healix-sponsored presented research from 2008-2016 is provided below. If you would like to learn more, speak with a Healix representative today.
