Understanding how to correctly and safely take your medication is critical to your health and wellbeing. Riverview Health Medication Management Clinic has one purpose: to help you get the most out of your medication treatment while minimizing side effects and complications.

Anticoagulation Monitoring

Anticoagulation monitoring is the primary service provided by Riverview Health Medication Management Clinic. People with a wide range of health conditions are prescribed warfarin (Coumadin, Jantoven) to help prevent excess clotting. Those who take warfarin require regular monitoring to ensure they have the appropriate degree of anticoagulation, or “blood thinning,” without experiencing unwanted side effects. Many factors can affect how much warfarin a person needs, and routine blood testing is required to ensure safe and effective use of this critically important medication.

When you visit Riverview Health Medication Management Clinic, your first appointment for anticoagulation monitoring will take about 45 minutes. After your initial visit, most of your appointments will only take 15 to 20 minutes.

During your appointment, we use a simple finger-stick blood sample to determine how well your medication is preventing blood clots. A pharmacist will discuss any necessary medication adjustments and provide you with easy-to-understand instructions on how to use your medication safely and effectively.

If you need a different strength of warfarin, the pharmacist can have the prescription filled on-site at our outpatient pharmacy and delivered directly to you so you don’t have to make another stop after your appointment.

In-home medication management is available for patients who meet certain qualifications. This allows patients the convenience and freedom to self-test at home while still having the expert oversight of the Riverview Health Medication Management team.
