Welcome to the OPIT Source Book!


Our condolence to the family and friends of Michael Davidson, MD of Boston, MA.  He was tragically killed by a son of a former patient and then turned the gun on himself.  To read the story, please visit HCP Live.


It has been a long haul since our last edition and updates on the web.  We all experience those life turns - some better, some worse.  The web site has been up and running since 1996.  You will find that companies and their products are in the process of updating.  Some companies have merged, some haveOPIT Source Book Fourth Edition image unfortunately shut down.  I will do my best to contact each and every one of those companies and the new companies that have never participated or known about us.  Hopefully, with all the help from the viewers of this site, physicians, nurses, pharmacists and all involved with infusion therapy will help pass the word how valuable this site and book are.  The OPIT Source Book has proven to be a highly valued site and resource offering products and services for infusion therapy across the globe!


I encourage you click on About Us and read about how OPIT was started and why it is important to continue. This will be a very special edition, dedicated to a physician who started it all, Alan D. Tice, MD, FIDSA an Infectious Disease Physician – a physician, teacher, mentor, friend, who knew how invaluable outpatient infusion therapy is.  I was very fortunate to work with Dr. Tice for 29 years.  A couple months before he passed he told me to keep his work going. So, let it be!  He is missed by all!


This site is meant for a quick resource of where you can find the outpatient intravenous therapy products and services you need without hours of searching - "a one-stop resource center for infusion therapy".  I try to maintain a site that is easy to navigate and not extra "ads" that do not pertain to infusion therapy.  If you can find in your heart to help donate to this project please click the "donate" button".  It has taken a lot of work and expense to basically restart this valuable resource.  I thank all of you for your patience while awaiting a new edition.  If you are interested in a copy of the next edition please see the "Order a Book" for more information.


Now, for the convenience you can add a "web clip" or icon to your home web clip for iphone imagescreen on your Apple device.  Right there at your fingertips!  I'll show you how HERE.  The mobile site is under construction and will be available shortly.  Thank you for your patience.


If you have any questions, comments or ideas to share please contact me. I have added a page where the importance of the book and web site has helped others.  As comments and ideas are shared, with their permission I would like to post them here and share with the rest of the visitors. I am looking forward to the best issue ever and a web site full of important resources right at your fingertips.

This website is free but it's a lot of work and expensive to maintain and keep up with technology.  There has been very little to no help funding the Outpatient Intravenous Therapy Source Book since the last edition years ago.
