Warfarin Therapy & INR Management
MCI offers remote warfarin management with the option of the convenience of home INR monitoring. INR home monitoring provides patients the capability of checking their INR 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. These advantages have been shown to increase the patient’s INR time in therapeutic range. Patients have shown to be vested in their own medical care and treatment when monitoring their INR’s at home while being managed by a trained, qualified warfarin team.
Remote warfarin management has lots of advantages. Remote monitoring is much more convenient and allows increased freedom for patients. We’ve found that patients are much more satisfied with remote home monitoring. This freedom can lead to an improved quality of life.
Warfarin is a type of medication that prevents clots from forming in your blood. Blood clots can stick to vessel walls or move around the body and cause serious problems. You may need Warfarin if you experience severe blockages, lack of movement, heart arrhythmias and mechanical devices in the body are some of the things that could cause blood clots.

Vitamin K Food Guide
