With the number of IV infusion therapies approved in Canada on the rise, and several in the pipeline for potential future approval, CADTH is assessing the readiness of the Canadian health care system to effectively implement these drugs. As a first step, CADTH has conducted a web search to collect information on the locations of privately funded IV infusion clinics across the country. To our knowledge, this is the first inventory of private IV infusion clinic locations in Canada. Understanding the scope and scale of private infusion clinic availability will be of value to decision-makers who are funding and implementing new IV treatments. Moving forward, a coordinated system for tracking, maintaining, and communicating IV infusion clinic information across the country is required.
