Comprehensive Care is an integrated, multidisciplinary approach to caring for people affected by bleeding disorders in it’s entirety. Blood disorders can affect all areas of life, from daily interactions with family and friends to the career path one chooses and retirement lifestyles. Integrating the medical providers, nurses, Physical Therapists, Dentist, Geneticists, Dietitians, social worker and pharmacist under a single provider umbrella in a single location streamlines and focuses care delivery for individual patients effectively and efficiently.
Please note that Comprehensive Clinic appointments may last up to three (3) hours if seeing all available disciplines.
Together, Comprehensive Care and appropriate use of Factor are complementary components of successful treatment for bleeding disorders. Integrating the two – which is what happens when people take advantage of our Hemophilia Treatment Center (HTC) specialty pharmacy – creates a winning combination for people affected by bleeding disorders.
Important Fact: A Centers for Disease Control study of 3,000 patients several years ago revealed that patients who received care at an HTC, in comparison to a general practitioner, were 40% less likely to die of a hemophilia-related complication. Furthermore, those that received care at an HTC, were 40% less likely to be hospitalized for bleeding complications.
