Anticoagulation Clinic at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center

Vascular Laboratory Team

The anticoagulation clinic is a pharmacist-managed outpatient clinic that provides specialized anticoagulation medication management to patients at risk for blood clots, focusing on the blood thinner warfarin (Coumadin®). Patients at risk for blood clots include those with a history of heart disease, atrial fibrillation, deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, myocardial infarction, stroke and other diseases.

The clinic's goal is to provide patients with highly individualized, ongoing monitoring of their warfarin anticoagulant therapy to decrease the risk of adverse events. Services include routine point-of-care blood test monitoring to check patients’ INR (International Normalized Ratio), in an effort to properly dose adjust drug therapy. This finger-stick test allows the staff to obtain immediate results and make necessary adjustments to patients’ medication dosage during their visits.

Additionally, the pharmacists provide counseling and education to patients about food and drug interactions, potential adverse drug reactions and appropriate medication use.
