If you are taking an anticoagulation medication (such as warfarin, Coumadin®) your doctor may refer you to our Anticoagulation Clinic. You benefit from:
- Cost savings: You are eligible for discounted warfarin prescriptions through the Outpatient Pharmacy.
- Safer results: We offer point of care testing (INR) during the visit and adjust the dose to reach the targeted INR. Participating in the Anticoagulation Clinic also offers continuity of care for patients to meet National Patient Safety Goals for Anticoagulation Safety.
- Education: We help you understand how to manage your life while on these medications, and help track your variations in diet, drug therapy and treatment goals while monitoring for safety.
- Updates: Your doctor will receive a report after each visit in order to stay fully informed about your situation. (Pharmacists denote INR and dose adjustments in Meditech.)
All services are delivered by pharmacists specially-trained in anticoagulation management. To participate, you must be ambulatory and able to come on-site for an appointment with an anticoagulation clinic pharmacist.
