Watch for New DOAC Guidance in Your Anticoagulation Policies
You'll see more focus on maximizing safe use of direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs)...apixaban (Eliquis), etc.
The Joint Commission is expanding the anticoagulation National Patient Safety Goal (NPSG) starting July 1, 2019. The biggest change will be the addition of the DOACs.
Verify your policy addresses DOAC dosing, monitoring, interactions, etc...similar to what you have for warfarin and injectable anticoagulants.
