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.

National Hemophilia Foundation’s Rare Bleeding and Clotting Disorders Resource Center
A subcommittee appointed by the Medical and Scientific Advisory Council (MASAC) of the National Hemophilia Foundation created a special issue of the journal Haemophilia on the topic of rare bleeding and clotting disorders (Haemophilia. Rare Bleeding and Clotting Disorders (special journal issue). 2008;14(6):1151-1280). The purpose of the special issue was to provide easily accessible information on rare bleeding and clotting disorders for patients and their caregivers. This compendium of review articles serves as a first-line resource to care providers throughout the world. To access the articles on protein C deficiency, protein S deficiency, inherited antithrombin deficiency, and plasminogen deficiency, click here.
