Award Recognizes Critical Need for Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) Prophylaxis in Hospitals

WOODCLIFF LAKE, N.J., Dec. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Eisai Inc., in coordination with the North American Thrombosis Forum (NATF), introduced today the DVTeamCare Hospital Award. This new award provides national recognition to hospitals that have made a significant commitment to preventing DVT and its potentially fatal complications.

With today's announcement, Eisai and the NATF will call on hospitals across the country to share their strategy for preventing DVT and nominate their hospital for the DVTeamCare Hospital Award. This award is an extension of Eisai's human health care (hhc) mission, which regards patients and their families as the most important participants in the health care process.

"Each year, hundreds of thousands of Americans develop DVT and pulmonary embolism (PE), underscoring the need for preventive measures to be taken within our nation's hospitals," said Cynthia Schwalm, President, Eisai Inc. "As the Acting Surgeon General's Call to Action on Venous Thromboembolism (VTE) gets underway, we are pleased to be working with the NATF to introduce the DVTeamCare Hospital Award. This Award will recognize hospitals that have dedicated resources to reduce the incidence of DVT."

In addition to being recognized nationally, the winning hospital's protocol and implementation plan will be made available at www.dvteamcareaward.com as a resource to help other hospitals enhance their efforts to prevent DVT.
