Anticoagulation Clinic Services
Our Anticoagulation Clinic gives patients a consistent method for assessment, monitoring and education for patients on anticoagulation medications. As a patient, you can expect:
- To meet with a pharmacist each time you need your (international normalized ratio) INR checked
- The opportunity to speak with the pharmacist about any concerns you may be having with your warfarin
- The chance to review dietary, physical and social changes that may affect your warfarin
- To have your blood tested with a simple point-of-care method or fingerstick method to get your INR within minutes
- Instructions on what dose of warfarin you should take and when you need to have your INR checked again
To be seen at the Anticoagulation Clinic, patients must:
- Have a UW Health primary care provider
- Be willing to schedule clinic visits with pharmacists for face-to-face management
The Anticoagulation Clinic is not able to accept patients with Dean, GHC or PPIC insurance or new referrals for patients residing in skilled nursing facilities.
