What is Remote Coumadin Management?

Our remote Coumadin management & Warfarin monitoring process offers patients the capability to have their INR checked in the comfort of their own homes. This saves time, provides consistency and frequency of reporting, and offers easy integration with technology and electronic health records.

Remote coumadin monitoring has a lot of advantages. Remote monitoring is much more convenient and allows much more freedom for patients. Also, patients have more control over their condition and treatment. We've found that patients are much more satisfied with remote monitoring. This freedom can lead to an improved quality of life.
