Traveling for Care?
Whether you're crossing the country or the globe, we make it easy to access world-class care at Johns Hopkins.
The Anticoagulation Management Service is a collaboration between the Departments of Hematology and Pharmacy. Our team is comprised of physicians and pharmacists who administer and monitor anticoagulant therapy for Johns Hopkins patients. Anticoagulants (also called blood thinners) are often prescribed to people who have blood clotting problems due to thrombosis or other disorders that increase the likelihood of blood clots—including atrial fibrillation, cardiovascular disease and stroke.
