CoagCare Program

When you’re diagnosed with a blood clot and prescribed a blood thinner (Anticoagulant), our CoagCare Clinic Program will help you make sure you take the medication correctly. We’ll monitor your dosage over time to verify it’s safe and effective, and advise you about the drug’s possible interactions with other medications and certain foods. That means you can get the most benefit from your blood thinner.
