Clot Connect is a unique program. There is no other academic center based thrombosis outreach program like it in the nation.
We are excited about the accomplishments of the program's first year, but realize there is more to do. The goal of Clot Connect’s educational outreach is to reduce the occurrence of and complications from venous thromboembolism. Improving clinical outcomes requires a multifaceted approach.
For patients, it means empowering them with knowledge about their condition and treatment so they can be active partners in their health care, resulting in greater satisfaction and an improved quality of life.
For health care professionals, it means providing them with the information and resources they need to confidently and consistently provide quality care to patients who have experienced venous thromboembolism.
We look forward to continuing to fulfill our educational mission.
