For your convenience, a smart phrase (dot phrase) has been created and can be copied and pasted into your electronic health record system, then added to the discharge paperwork, which will provide your patients with this information:
You have been diagnosed with a blood clot. You and your family/caretakers will likely have a lot of questions over the next few weeks. There is a program that that might help. It provides text messages to connect you to videos and other education. In addition the messages will remind you to make a doctor’s appointment and get your medicine.
