ABSTRACT
In this article, the author focuses on the observational study of N. Oake and colleagues on technology-based approach in improving the care for patients receiving anticoagulant therapy. He asserts that the conclusions of the study suggest various possibilities for improving the quality and efficiency of managing anticoagulation care to large number of patients. However, he suggests the use of randomized controlled trial and the enrollment of less-than-ideal participants in future studies.
