Abstract:  This article is a brief compilation of some of the information a compounding pharmacist should consider if they are interested in entering the home infusion therapy business. Home infusion therapy is a prevalent and growing business, wrought out of necessity, convenience, and effectiveness. A compounding pharmacist can assist in making the patient’s transition from hospital to home infusion care go smoother and with a minimum amount of stress. A treatment strategy that continues the healing process by taking place in a patient’s home, keeps healthier patients from potentially contracting illnesses in a hospital setting. By working with a team made up of the physician, nurse, pharmacist, dietitian, and the patient, decision making for the appropriate care becomes an easier task
