LAKE FOREST, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apria Healthcare, a leader in home medical equipment and home care services, today announced the launch of the Refresh™ home enteral nutrition support program with the intention of providing top quality service for the home care industry.
A recent survey of more than 1,000 healthcare professionals done in partnership with Apria and UBM Medica, clearly indicated the need for a home enteral nutrition solution with a sharpened focus on the overall patient experience, clinical expertise and health outcomes.
