Programs and Services
Hemophilia of Georgia’s comprehensive programs and services help meet the needs and challenges facing the bleeding disorder community. Since bleeding disorders affect not only an individual, but also his or her entire family, HoG offers programs and services for every member of the family. Additionally, as part of HoG’s comprehensive care, we offer clinical coordination services enabling medical professionals at the Hemophilia Treatment Center (HTC) to efficiently communicate and collaborate with our pharmacy, nurses, social workers in order to streamline communication and provide the best care possible.
