Specifically, this workshop aims to do the following: (1) Evaluate the impact of DOACs on traditional coagulation testing results; (2) identify clinical circumstances where testing of DOACs anticoagulant activity or concentration would be relevant; (3) discuss clinically meaningful interpretation of coagulation testing results for patients on DOACs; and (4) review the regulatory requirements for granting clearance for in vitro diagnostic devices intended for coagulation testing in patients treated with DOACs.
