New paradigms for the diagnosis, prophylaxis, acute treatment, and ongoing management of patients with venous thromboembolic disease (VTE), a better understanding of the genotypic and phenotypic mechanisms of thrombophilic states, and the possibility of a greatly expanded armamentarium of antithrombotic therapies are necessitating a more formalized and systematic approach to VTE management. This has required many US healthcare institutions to develop piecemeal approaches in management models for VTE utilizing local champions from a variety of subspecialties. Development of a formalized Clinical Thrombosis Center from an already established Anticoagulant Management Service utilizing a clinical thrombologist, a new role for a physician who has developed expertise in anticoagulation and VTE management, presents a new paradigm in which this disease may be approached at a formalized, institutional level. Thus the clinical thrombologist working through a Clinical Thrombosis Center can develop a system-of-care approach to link the rapid advances in the field of thromboembolism to clinical applications, formulate evidence-based disease management guidelines, and conduct patient-oriented translational clinical research in VTE.
