Abstract

Integration of accepted practice standards into electronic health record systems can facilitate standardization of anticoagulation care delivery and result in improved anticoagulation safety. However, the majority of commonly used electronic health record systems are lacking the specialized features necessary for optimal anticoagulation management. The Task Force on Electronic Health Records of the New York State Anticoagulation Coalition provides such a Consensus Statement in this issue of the journal. The Anticoagulation Forum endorses these recommendations and advises the electronic health record industry and health information technology programmers at the institutional level to adopt these recommendations in a comprehensive and timely manner.
