MADISON HEIGHTS, Mich., Oct. 18, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- InfuSystem Holdings, Inc. (NYSE American: INFU) ("InfuSystem" or the "Company"), a leading provider of oncology infusion pumps and related services in North America, announced a feature segment that recently ran on a leading cable TV channel highlighting how InfuSystem infusion technology improves the quality of life of a patient going through the process of receiving chemotherapy.

InfuSystem Holdings, Inc. is the leading provider of infusion pumps and related services to hospitals, oncology practices and other alternate site healthcare providers. Headquartered in Madison Heights, Michigan, the company delivers local, field-based customer support, and also operates Centers of Excellence in Michigan, Kansas, California, Texas and Ontario, Canada.

Entitled "At-Home Infusion Made Easy," the segment ran on "The Balancing Act" Lifetime TV morning show on October 5th. The segment can be viewed on-demand at www.infusystem.com/LifetimeTV .

Featured in the segment is one of the over 300,000 new patients with gastrointestinal cancers that are estimated by the American Cancer Society to be diagnosed annually in the U.S. InfuSystem treats a large number of these patients with hardware, medication and services that serve as the gold standard in the industry.

"I get to get my chemo on the run... and that makes my life a whole lot easier," said the patient of his InfuSystem experience. As shown in the Lifetime TV segment, InfuSystem patients are able to spend more time in the comfort of their own home while receiving their infusion therapy.

Rich DiIorio, Executive Vice President at InfuSystem, said, "You'll see a great example of how InfuSystem patients are able to receive critically-important treatment in the comfort of their own homes. This allows them to continue to engage in the activities that are important to them, as opposed to spending their time in a hospital or infusion clinic."

"When it comes to immunocompromised chemotherapy patients," Mr. Dilorio continued, "more time in a hospital is generally not a good thing given the risk of hospital-borne infection, the anxiety resulting from being away from home, and the extraordinary costs associated with hospital stays."

"We hope that the Lifetime segment featuring a patient sharing his at-home experience with a broadcast audience will help to empower viewers, some of whom are currently, or at some point in the future will be, diagnosed with a treatable form of cancer, to learn more about their infusion therapy options, and thus make better-informed decisions about their own care and treatment."

The segment aired on Lifetime TV and will continue to air on affiliate stations. The segment may also be viewed on-demand at www.infusystem.com/LifetimeTV .
