Anticoagulation Management Services

Anticoagulation Management Services (AMS) cares for patients who are at risk for blood clots or stroke and who are taking drugs such as warfarin (Coumadin) to slow blood clotting. AMS staff includes pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, registered nurses, and licensed practical nurses who are specially trained in warfarin therapy.

AMS staff monitor patients' lab results to assess if any changes need to be made in the warfarin dose. They then consult with patients over the phone, recommending dosage changes and setting dates for follow-up lab work. AMS staff also may consult with the patient's personal physician or specialty physicians in complex cases.
