Welcome to Anticoagulation Centers of Excellence

The Anticoagulation Centers of Excellence program was created in 2012 to help healthcare professionals provide the highest level of care and achieve the best possible outcomes for their patients on antithrombotic medications. Through access to evidence-based guidelines and constantly researched and updated best practices, tools and information, healthcare professionals will be able to improve outcomes through active participation in their patients' care. The Anticoagulation Centers of Excellence program offers a roadmap to achieving consistent, sustainable excellence in patient care.

There are two essential components to the Centers of Excellence program - an assessment tool to determine if your anticoagulation service is operating at the highest level, with recommendations and resources provided for specific areas that can be improved; and a comprehensive, searchable resource center that provides the guidelines and tools to improve towards excellence.

This Centers of Excellence program was created by the Anticoagulation Forum, the leading organization of healthcare professionals working to improve the quality of care for patients taking antithrombotic medications. More than 30 anticoagulation physicians, pharmacists, and nurse experts have worked together to create this resource. There is no cost to participate in this program.
