Tools of the Trade: How Intrafusion by McKesson Improves Infusion Center Efficiency, Biosimilar Utilization

Cheryl Vaughn, vice president of clinical services at McKesson, discussed how McKesson's Intrafusion service helps manage infusion sites and aids in the administration of complex biologic drugs, including biosimilars.

On this week’s episode, we’re taking a look at the impact clinical teams have on biosimilar utilization and patient care within infusion centers. Many infusion medications are biologic drugs and juggling multiple biosimilars for the same reference product can place undue burden on infusion centers and result in medication errors, such as accidentally administering a product not covered by a patient’s insurance. Intrafusion by McKesson’s full management service enables better efficiency within infusion centers and relieves some of the pressure providers and administrators face when trying to manage infusion facilities, including leveraging biosimilars.

Today, I’m joined by Cheryl Vaughn, vice president of clinical services at Intrafusion by McKesson. She has worked closely to develop a robust develop the tool clinical nursing program that accompanies Intrafusion’s full management service and has been with the company for over 5 years. She also has over 8 years of experience working as a registered nurse prior to her time at McKesson.
