Understanding the Risks of Medical Interventions - Improving Patient Care

Improving Anticoagulation Management at the Point of Care - Feature

ABSTRACT: Many physicians and other providers attempt therapeutic warfarin oversight without regularly scheduled anticoagulation appointments. Studies show that the risk of major bleeding or thromboembolic events due to warfarin therapy is between 2 percent and 12 percent per year. Point-of-care anticoagulation devices are convenient for patients and physicians and allow for patient-focused anticoagulation care.
