Brief Summary:
This study aims to explore the feasibility of a novel, patient-specific algorithm for adjusting warfarin doses during chronic anticoagulation therapy. Specifically investigators are interested in determining whether patients can use this algorithm to assume responsibility for managing their own warfarin therapy including making independent decisions about their warfarin dose and when to retest their next international normalized ratio (INR) test based on the result of their current INR result obtained using a point-of-care INR monitor.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Active Comparator: Standard Management
The standard management phase will be historical and consist of warfarin management during the 12-months prior to signing informed consent.
Other: Usual care
Historical management of warfarin by patient's usual care providers

Experimental: Fearon Algorithm (FA) Anticoagulation Management Service
Once study patients have received an approved FA report, the FA AMS phase of the study will commence. An investigator will communicate the new warfarin tablet size, if necessary, and use the FA report to determine warfarin doses for the patient.
Other: Fearon warfarin dosing algorithm
Blood test drawn by patient using a point of care INR monitor
Other Name: Point of care INR test

Experimental: Fearon Algorithm (FA) Patient Self Management
At the conclusion of the six-month FA anticoagulation management service phase, patients will be trained to use the FA for patient self management (PSM) and after successfully demonstrating the ability to engage in PSM the FA PSM phase of the study will commence.
Other: Fearon warfarin dosing algorithm
Blood test drawn by patient using a point of care INR monitor
Other Name: Point of care INR test




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Participant time spent in therapeutic INR range [ Time Frame: 6-12 months ]
    Estimated time patient's INR is within their specified target range

  2. Participant percent of INRs in the therapeutic INR range [ Time Frame: 6-12 months ]
    Actual proportion of measured INR within participant's specified target range

  3. Number of participant's INR results resulting in a warfarin dose change [ Time Frame: 6-12 months ]
    Proportion of participant's measured INRs that result in warfarin dose being changed


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. The number of participants experiencing major bleeding [ Time Frame: 6-12 months ]
    Bleeding events meeting the criteria for major bleeding

  2. The number of participants experiencing clinically relevant non-major bleeding [ Time Frame: 6-12 months ]
    Bleeding events meeting the criteria for clinically relevant non-major bleeding

  3. The number of participants experiencing thromboembolic events [ Time Frame: 6-12 months ]
    Thromboembolic events meeting study definition


Other Outcome Measures:
  1. The proportion of participants successfully transitioned to patient self management [ Time Frame: Assessed at month 6 of study period ]
    Proportion of patients successfully able to assume responsibility for managing their own warfarin therapy

Ages Eligible for Study:   22 Years and older   (Adult, Older Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Patients at least 22 years of age treated with warfarin for any indication for at least 18 months prior to enrollment within University of Utah Health system.
  • Demonstrates the willingness and ability to test their own INR using a point-of-care INR monitoring device, and willingness to make independent decisions about warfarin dosing based on INR results using a dosing algorithm.
  • Willingness to perform INR tests at least once weekly or more frequently as the algorithm dictates.
  • Currently have and willing to maintain internet access for the duration of the study in order to complete online case report forms.
  • Individual TTR < 60% over the 12 months prior to study enrollment.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Inherent INR variability >0.4 (such patients are unlikely to benefit from the Fearon Algorithm).
  • Goal INR range less than a full INR point (e.g. 2.0-2.5).
  • Known poor compliance to warfarin therapy (e.g., failure to take warfarin as instructed clearly documented in electronic medical record and/or return for INR testing as evidenced by repeated reminder communications documented in electronic medical record).
  • More than one interruption of warfarin therapy for invasive procedure(s) lasting more than three days in the 18 months prior to study enrollment.
  • Non-English speaking.
  • Refusal to provide written informed consent.
