Episode 6 - Addressing the Gaps in Care for Hemophilia Patients

Delivering the optimal care to patients with hemophilia is often a challenge, both clinically and financially. According to Patrick Fogarty, MD, the individuals who are best fit to execute treatment guidelines are those who practice at specialty hemophilia treatment centers, as they are able to provide on-site multidisciplinary, comprehensive care.

However, the panelists conclude that there are still gaps in current treatment guidelines that require addressing. In an effort to provide the best of care to all patients with hemophilia, regardless of geography, strategies such as home care, satellite clinics, and increased patient education have been implemented into contemporary treatment paradigms.
