About the National Infusion Center Association Accreditation Program
NICA is an independent, nonprofit trade association and accrediting body dedicated to representing outpatient care settings where provider-administered biologics and specialty medications are prepared and administered. The NICA Accreditation Program and the NICA Standards of Excellence for Ambulatory Infusion Centers are intended to pertain to all ambulatory care settings where patients receive non-hazardous provider-administered medications via parenteral (i.e., intravenous, intramuscular, subcutaneous, or intradermal) routes.

The NICA Standards of Excellence for Ambulatory Infusion Centers were established with the following objectives:

  • Reduce disparities in care quality among office-based infusion care settings;
  • Support infusion providers’ efforts to implement best practices; and,
  • Provide the basis for regulatory and legislative endeavors that seek to ensure facilities preparing and administering parenteral medications do so in a safe, consistent, and effective manner in accordance with evidence-based standards of care.
