Nowadays problem of anticoagulation treatment affects 15% out of persons older than 60 years , therefore around 65 million individuals in Europe. Moreover, the number of commercially available anticoagulation drugs has been rising. For surgeons, general practitioners and patients, this situation generates a significant challenge.
Although, the guidelines of various specialist societies provide recommendations and instructions on how to proceed an anticoagulation treatment , there is no consensus for decision-making. Therefore, an interdisciplinary approach is essential to simplify the handling of anticoagulants.
The aim of the project is to develop a mobile application for supporting the decision-making process in the anticoagulation treatment with an educational module for patients and their relatives.
