Anticoagulation Management Software Helps Improve Patient Safety

May 21, 2008 - LUMEDX Corp., a provider of cardiovascular imaging and information systems (CVIS), introduced software today to manage data and track patients on long-term Coumadin (warfarin) therapy.

The company says its Anticoagulation Module empowers clinicians by making critical clinical information accessible immediately, improving patient care and safety. It is a part of LUMEDX’s suite of integrated cardiovascular imaging and information management tools, delivering a unified cardiovascular information systems solution.

The Anticoagulation Module increases efficiency by automating the workflow to track lab values, dosages and complications. It makes records immediately accessible, on or off site and helps satisfy new JCAHO patient safety goals for anticoagulation therapy.

The module is also said to promote quality of data by eliminating hard-to-read handwritten records and redundant data entry.
