The Saint Francis Hospital Anticoagulation Service is a hospital based outpatient medication management service specializing in the management of warfarin and other anticoagulants. Our mission is to act in consult with the patient's primary care provider, cardiologist or other referring physician to provide organized anticoagulation management in an effort to improve the efficacy and safety of anticoagulant medications. Comprehensive care of these patients includes patient assessment, patient education, warfarin dose management, and coordination of care when the interruption of anticoagulation is necessary.
INR testing is done by a point of care device for immediate results so that dosing instructions may be provided to patients in a face to face visit. Patients are assessed by registered nurses or pharmacists with specific knowledge in caring for patients on anticoagulants under the supervision of a hematologist.
Please note that the turnaround time for a new patient appointment is approximately 1-2 weeks with priority given to patients being discharged from the hospital. Please note that the referring physician is responsible for the management of the patient's anticoagulation until the patient is seen in the Anticoagulation Service.
If you would like to refer a patient to the Anticoagulation Service, please download and print the referral form and fax this back to 860.714.7598.
