Our Advanced IntrathecalCare services focus on improving patient outcomes and to that end we integrate the following services:
- Specialty pharmacy dedicated to the preparation of sterile prescription medications
- Specialized in-home intrathecal nursing services
- Patient-centered care coordination
What sets AIS HealthCare's pharmacy apart is our groundbreaking sterilization program that combines traditional Aseptic Processing (AP) controls with proven Terminal Sterilization (TS) techniques. Our innovative syringe sterilization process maximizes sterility while still ensuring product potency and stability.
Each patient with an implanted pump is unique and therefore requires a customized medication, tailored to their specific needs. Providing patient-specific, intrathecal pain pump medications is one of AIS's core competencies.
All medications are prepared and dispensed from the AIS HealthCare 503A specialty pharmacy. Our experienced and licensed pharmacy team prepares sterile intrathecal medications from non-sterile powders in accordance with physician-ordered prescriptions, and in compliance with the required guidelines outlined by USP <797> and all state boards of pharmacy.
The AIS specialty pharmacy is supported with additional Advanced IntrathecalCare services including in-home pain pump refill and proactive patient care coordination.
