Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Evaluation of clinical and resource utilization endpoints and economic analysis from the perspective of the home infusion provider [ Time Frame: Day 4; Day 7; Day 14 (if applicable); end of therapy (approximately 7-14 days after treatment begins); 30 days post therapy; 90 days post therapy ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Operational differences associated with receipt of IV medication in a home infusion setting [ Time Frame: Day 4; Day 7; Day 14 (if applicable); end of therapy (approximately 7-14 days after treatment begins); 30 days post therapy; 90 days post therapy ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    explore operational differences associated with receiving daptomycin compared to vancomycin in a home infusion setting

  • Health economics differences associated with receipt of IV medication in a home infusion setting [ Time Frame: Day 4; Day 7; Day 14 (if applicable); end of therapy (approximately 7-14 days after treatment begins); 30 days post therapy; 90 days post therapy ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    explore operational differences associated with receiving daptomycin compared to vancomycin in a home infusion setting

Detailed Description:

This is a randomized, open-label, multi-center, phase 4 study. The overall goals of this study are to compare intravenous (IV) daptomycin and IV vancomycin administered in a home infusion setting for the treatment of cSSSI due to Gram-positive bacteria in patients who are prescribed vancomycin for 7-14 days and who are planning to receive vancomycin in a home infusion setting. Study enrollment will continue until at least 100 patients have been enrolled into each treatment arm. Study objectives include evaluation of clinical and resource utilization endpoints and economic analysis from the perspective of the home infusion provider.
