An Automated Voice Response System for Anticoagulant Therapy Management

Abstract : The system described in this paper is aimed at improving the clinical workflow of post-stroke patients under oral anticoagulant therapy (OAT). The system helps both physicians and patients during the periodic control visits necessary to assess the anticoagulation status and the next therapeutic plan. Controls represent a burden for both patients, which after blood drawing must wait for the result, and for physicians, that, after assessing the therapy plan, must communicate it to patients, face-to-face or by telephone. A system is proposed, which embeds an algorithm for the patient-tailored calculation of the drug dosage and scheduling, and an automatic telephone dialogue for the communication of the therapy plan, once it has been validated or adjusted by the physician.
