Know Blood Clots
Know Blood Clots: Program Helps Educate Patients
Need a convenient resource on bloodclots for your newly diagnosed VTE/PE patients and their caregivers? If you've told a patient they have a blood clot, they are probably looking for more information. Encourage them to text CLOTWEB to 412-652-3744 to sign up for the Know Blood Clots program, a texting program that provides them with educational videos on how to manage their diagnosis, reminders to take their medications, and links to a website with FAQs. This program was developed by ACEP and the National Blood Clot Alliance (NBCA), a patient-led, voluntary health advocacy organization.
