ALEXANDRIA, Va. – The National Home Infusion Association and Strategic Healthcare Programs (SHP), a healthcare data and technology services company, will collaborate on the collection of clinical and business performance data as part of an ongoing effort to develop national standards for home and specialty infusion therapy. SHP will work with NHIA to collect, aggregate, and report data using its web-based real time solution, according to a press release. NHIA in 2010 launched a multi-phase Industry Wide Data Initiative. “We are pleased to work with SHP to facilitate the creation of national quality standards while maintaining NHIA’s neutrality and ensuring the security and privacy for members who participate in our data activities,” said Connie Sullivan, NHIA vice president of research and innovation.
