Medication Management Services at Legacy Health

Our clinical pharmacists care for adults who take complex, critically important prescription medications for:

  • Anticoagulation
  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Hepatitis C.

In addition, this service can help patients who take more than 10 medications or have medication management concerns. These services expand upon the Anticoagulation Clinic that have been helping patients with their anticoagulant medication for more than 30 years.

What is anti-coagulation?

The type of drugs that work to prevent blood clotting are called anticoagulants. These medicines can help with serious health problems. However, they also carry some possible side effects. To learn more, search our health library for "anticoagulation" or "blood thinner." 

Legacy offers special clinics where pharmacists and nurses do blood tests and adjust doses for adults and children who take these meds. We work with your doctor or provider to give you the best anticoagulant treatment, while cutting down on the risk for side effects.

  • Point-of-care (finger-stick) international normalized ratio (INR) testing
  • Medication adjustment
  • Supervision for effectiveness and side effects
