Hemophilia Diagnostic and Treatment Centers
In 1973, the National Hemophilia Foundation launched a two-year campaign to establish the creation of a nationwide network of hemophilia diagnostic and treatment centers (HTCs). The idea was based upon providing a range of comprehensive services for patients and families within one treatment facility. Today, there are over 130 federally-funded treatment centers and programs across the country. They are organized within 12 regional networks funded by the Health Resources Services Administration (HRSA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
The concept of comprehensive care is to treat the whole person and the family, through continuous supervision of all the medical and psychosocial aspects of bleeding disorders. Comprehensive care is total care because every facet of the person is addressed, including their physical, emotional, psychological, educational, financial and vocational factors. The development of comprehensive care over the past 40 years, has greatly improved the quality of life for people with bleeding disorders, helping them to be more independent and productive. The treatment center care network has also lowered patients morbidity and provided cost-effective care in the long term.
