Drivers & Restraints:
Increasing Incidence of HAIs to Augment Market Growth
As healthcare evolved, delivery of patient care outside of healthcare settings increased considerably in developed countries such as the US An aging population in the country is a major driver of this trend. Healthcare systems across the country are increasingly shifting patient care to homecare settings to reduce strain in terms of cost and resources. Various initiatives have been implemented by public health agencies in the US to create awareness about homecare. A variety of reimbursement policies for medical devices, drugs, and services for home healthcare delivery will augment the US home infusion therapy market growth.
