Community Infusion Solutions
Community Infusion Solutions (CIS) was founded by Mitchell Berenson in 2008 as a turnkey public health solutions firm focused on the development of regional outpatient IV Infusion Centers of Excellence. We are passionate advocates for rural health who aim to increase hospital revenue, increase patient access to care, and establish a sustainable outpatient IV infusion service line that drives brand recognition and increases a hospital’s ROI.
CIS has partnered with over 45 facilities, averaging 90% patient compliance and generating over $65 million in annual cash flow and 22,000+ infusions for rural hospitals.
We provide 24/7 case management, pre-authorization and verification of insurance, billing and coding services, outcomes-oriented care tracked for patient compliance, and local and regional marketing for identified patients and new referrals.
CIS increases a hospitals’ market share of infusion services, reduces outmigration by developing disruption strategies, increases referrals from large regional providers by ensuring patient compliance and reducing re-admittance rates, and provides data-driven strategies to address the needs of individual hospitals.

Improved Healthcare Outcomes
Community Infusion Solutions is a company specifically designed to help rural hospitals develop a quality outpatient infusion program that brings value to that hospital and that community. We develop our own proprietary predictive analytics tools to identify needs and opportunities using data specific to a particular hospital.
Community Infusion Solutions realizes every facility has its own special needs and circumstances, which is why we approach each project as a separate and distinct program. CIS helps develop a program that is specifically yours—always keeping your needs and goals in mind. CIS works with your team in administration, financials, nursing, materials management, and pharmacy departments to coordinate all phases and details of your infusion suite.
Community Infusion Solutions (“CIS”) was formed by founding principle Mitchell Berenson. While on sabbatical in Togo, West Africa, as part of his graduate studies, Mitchell saw local healthcare providers recording information in a book. “It was there that Mitchell realized the power of statistical data and how he could identify trends or even the root cause of illness if given this healthcare information in an easier and more usable format.
Upon returning to the United States, he immersed himself in the study of statistics, and his career coincided with the standardization of healthcare data through the implementation of HIPAA laws. Unlike many of his peers, Mitchell uses the latest technology to sift through mountains of data that are otherwise impenetrable to provide clear and accurate answers rather than acting on hunches and conventional wisdom.
Mitchell’s passion for community service and improved healthcare outcomes led to the development of Community Infusion Solutions to specifically serve small and rural healthcare facilities. Partnering with professionals of the highest ethical standards, it’s our desire to provide the best service to our clients.
A Few Success Stories
I’m pleased because I don’t have to make a 4 ½-hour drive to get my infusion. It’s great that we can now have the therapy that I needed right here.
We want to bring patients back home to get the care that they could get here. Community Infusions Solutions has helped us communicate that message effectively with the physicians that provide care for these patients.
You can continue to work. You can be at home. You don’t have to travel long distances. That’s a critical and a very key component of what we’re offering here at our hospital.
It’s probably the easiest service line that I’ve been able to implement because you guys have really done a great job and have really been on top of the nuts and bolts of the operation…making it pretty painless for us.
Bringing in the Community Infusion services program here helped us diversify our offer in our community. It helped us keep our patients local, help them and be introduced to the other programs and services that we were offering.
The growth of what started out as a tiny little room with one little nurse, and we’re seeing patients on a regular basis six days a week that we would not have seen without their help—growing a small service into a significant service and have a good impact on the bottom line for a community hospital.
