A Study to Test a Tool to Help People for Anticoagulant Drug-to-Drug Interactions
This study is to better understand the safety of oral anticoagulants (medicine for people taken by mouth to prevent blood clots) which may increase the risk of bleeding events if taken with other medications. Researchers at the University of Utah have developed an app called DDInteract to use on a technology device like a cell phone that allows doctors and patients to make decisions about drug reactions with oral anticoagulants and other medications. We want to see if using the app helps patients and their doctors learn and reduce the risks of taking anticoagulants with other medications. People in this study will participate in a virtual focus group (a discussion together with several people using technology such as a cell phone or computer). The information we gain will help us learn more about the effects of taking oral anticoagulants with other drugs.
