Campbell County Medical Group will soon be starting a new service for people on long-term blood thinning
medications, such as the drug
Coumadin. Research has shown that patients often do better on this type of therapy
when they have more frequent visits and education about their treatment
plan. Patients being treated for heart problems or patients who have had
frequent blood clots are often prescribed blood thinning medicines.
Gail Graham will be the point of contact for the new Anticoagulation Management program,
a long name for a way to provide more frequent and personalized care for
these patients. She recently obtained certification in
Anticoagulation Therapy Management through the
University of Southern Indiana. Gail will see the patient as often as every two weeks or sometimes monthly.
A simple finger stick test is used to evaluate how the medication is working,
and Gail will provide support and education along the way.
Internal Medicine physician
Dr. Landi Lowell is the medical director of the program, which will be up and running in
a few weeks. Call 307.688.3636 to learn more or visit
