Anticoagulation Management Service
Stoneham Outpatient Campus
41 Montvale Avenue
Hallmark Health's Anticoagulation Management Service (AMS) offers treatment to patients who are on blood thinning medications like warfarin, (Coumadin®), enoxaparin (Lovenox®), fondaparinux (Arixtra®), dabigatran (Pradaxa®), and rivaroxaban (Xarelto®), which are used to prevent blood clots from forming or becoming larger.
The AMS is overseen by a medical director and anticoagulation pharmacists who closely monitor patients’ anticoagulation therapy. Close monitoring and appropriate follow-up allows for prompt intervention if dosage adjustments are needed, leading to better patient outcomes. Patients also receive counseling and education through the service.
Studies have shown that patients enrolled in a centralized anticoagulation management service have better International Normalized Ratios (INR) control, decreased adverse events and better clinical outcomes. Typical patients include those with cardiac conditions, clotting disorders, post-orthopedic surgery and/or patients that recently suffered a stroke. Anticoagulation management using a centralized service is the standard of care in the field of anticoagulation by providing patients easy accessibility to a specialized clinician and a focused and individualized approach to anticoagulation management.
