Anticoagulants are a leading cause of acute injury from adverse drug events, leading to ~20,000 serious injuries reported to the Food and Drug Administration per year and more than 220,000 emergency department visits annually. Therefore, we propose to implement a health information technology (HIT) population management tool at two distinct anticoagulation clinics that will allow the care team to assign and track tasks essential for timely patient monitoring. We will examine its effect on anticoagulation management outcomes through a randomized trial, hypothesizing that such interventions can be effective as well as cost-effective strategies to improve patient safety in the context of anticoagulation management services.
