HTC Network: A Vital Resource of Patient Care
HTCs are specialized health care centers that bring together a team of doctors, nurses, and other health professionals experienced in treating people with hemophilia. A CDC study of 3,000 people with hemophilia showed that those who used an HTC were 40% less likely to die of a hemophilia-related complication compared to those who did not receive care at a treatment center. Similarly, people who used a treatment center were 40% less likely to be hospitalized for bleeding complications. Join us to learn more about HTCs and the benefits associated with seeking treatment at an HTC.
