Stay in touch with your DOAC patients

Support patients on a direct oral anticoagulant (DOAC / NOAC) to understand their anticoagulation therapy better and encourage medication adherence with our DOAC support programme.

Gain visibility with digital DOAC reviews

NICE guidelines advise that patients on a DOAC require regular follow up and monitoring. Delivered via our easy-to-use engage patient app, the DOAC support programme simplifies this process and helps you release clinic time.

Patients submit scheduled digital reviews directly to INRstar, letting you know how they’re getting on without the need of a clinic appointment.

You can:

  • Schedule digital reviews from your patient’s record in INRstar
  • View incoming reviews and learn how patients are getting on
  • File them back to your clinical system via INRstar
