Increase Bed Availability with NELC’s Home Vascular Access Program

Vascular Access

With the introduction of ultrasound guidance, FDA approval and years of positive outcomes associated with ECG confirmation of bedside PICC lines, New England Life Care can now bring Peripheral, PICC and Midline insertion directly to your office, hospital, outpatient center, or patients’ home using the same technology and quality found in hospitals nationwide.  Once the line is placed, we can initiate drug treatment at the patient’s home. 

Inability to arrange for timely line placement can result in an unnecessary ER visit, hospital admission or an extended hospital length of stay, as some facilities have difficulty meeting the demands for same day vascular access consults. New England Life Care can work with clinicians to maximize insurance coverage regardless if placement site is in the physician office, hospital or home. Our vascular access services can additionally help with hospital admission avoidance, coordination challenges and patient immobility issues and enable infusion services at home.
