Studies show that if patients who are taking anticoagulation medication are closely monitored, they are less likely to suffer complications that could lead to emergency room visits and/or hospitalizations. 

Through education and careful laboratory monitoring by fingerstick testing, the Lifestyle Management Institute (LMI) program helps patients manage their anticoagulation therapy safely and efficiently.  We help patients identify many important factors to consider while taking anticoagulant medication including: 

  • Reason for taking an anticoagulant
  • How the medication works
  • Dietary considerations
  • Safety issues
  • How to identify adverse side effects
  • Importance of regular blood testing
  • Medication interaction 

Nationally, programs of this sort achieve patient's time in therapeutic range of just over 60 percent.  Whereas the Lifestyle Management Institute program has results that are as high as 83 percent.
