Outpatient Clinic Helps Patients Manage Care While Taking Anticoagulation Medication
The Anticoagulation Clinic is a pharmacist-directed outpatient program designed for individuals who need help with the management of the anticoagulation medication warfarin (Coumadin/Jantoven). We are conveniently located on the ground floor of Medical Arts Center 3 on the University Hospitals Parma Medical Center campus.
Pharmacists at the clinic will assist patients with dietary needs, interactions, education and adjustment of medications if it is necessary. The safety of our patients is our No. 1 priority at University Hospitals Heart & Vascular Institute at UH Parma Medical Center. Our pharmacists actively communicate with each patient’s physician to ensure that they are safely managed while on warfarin.
Types of Conditions Treated
Because anticoagulation therapy is beneficial to a variety of conditions, our team has expert knowledge of a range of numerous clinical conditions including:
The Anticoagulation Clinic uses point-of-care testing (a finger-stick) for the patients’ convenience and comfort. Most appointments last less than 10 minutes, and results are available within minutes.
The UH Parma Medical Center laboratory will continue to offer traditional venous puncture method services for those who prefer this method.
