About the Michigan Anticoagulation Quality Improvement Initiative (MAQI2)
U-M is a part of the Michigan Anticoagulation Quality Improvement Initiative (MAQI2), a consortium of anticoagulation clinics and experts from across the state committed to improving the quality of anticoagulation care. One of the MAQI2 efforts is to provide comprehensive information about anticoagulant therapy, including an Anticoagulation Toolkit (see below) that addresses frequently asked questions and concerns.
The Anticoagulation Toolkit
The Anticoagulation Toolkit is an online resource produced by the Michigan Anticoagulation Quality Improvement Initiative (MAQI2). Funding for MAQI2 is provided by Blue Cross Blue Shield and Blue Care Network of Michigan through the Collaborative Quality Improvement (CQI) program. The goal of the toolkit is to provide practitioners and patients with an up-to-date, reliable, and easy to use source of information for anticoagulation.
