Delivering Integrated Care and Cost Management
The IHTC works collaboratively with payors to optimize care. We ensure that the patients and families we serve have access to care and therapies, thereby helping to contain costs and reduce both bleeding events and utilization of resources.
The IHTC Pharmacy’s ability to purchase clotting factor through the Public Health Service 340B discount program and our overall pricing structure benefit payors and patients by dispensing clotting factor at significantly reduced prices.
Bleeding Disorder Camps
Camp Brave Eagle
Camp Brave Eagle is Indiana’s summer camp for children with bleeding disorders. The week-long camp is open to all Indiana children with bleeding disorders, as well as their siblings, ages 7–15.
The basic aim of the camp is to provide these special children a traditional summer camp experience. Besides providing lots of fun, Camp Brave Eagle succeeds on another level in encouraging self–sufficiency, building confidence, increasing self–esteem and promoting a positive outlook. Further, the camp serves as a vehicle to strenthen the sense of community among young Hoosiers with bleeding disorders and their families.
The Indiana Hemophilia & Thrombosis Center Inc. (IHTC) partners with Hemophilia of Indiana Inc. (HII) in hosting camp.

Thompson Outpost Teen Camp
The Doug Thompson Teen Leadership Program was developed in memory of Doug Thompson. Doug had a passion for helping teens and investing in youth during the most impressionable years of their lives. The program provides teen members of the bleeding disorder community an opportunity to develop and refine life and leadership skills while participating in an adventure camp experience. Teen camp teaches young men how to mentally and physically prepare for nearly anything, while affirming the choice to not participate in activities that may put them at risk mentally or physically.
