Health System Readiness Report: The Availability of Privately Funded IV Infusion Clinics in Canada

Published June 24, 2022

Key Messages

  • The number of IV infusion therapies approved in Canada is on the rise, with several in the pipeline for potential future approval.
  • To assess Canadian health system readiness to implement these new drugs, CADTH has conducted a web search to determine 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.
