Pulmonary Embolism Response Teams (PERTs) are being created around the United States to immediately and simultaneously bring together multiple specialists to determine the best course of action and coordinate clinical care for patients with severe pulmonary embolism (PE). The organization and structure of each PERT will depend on local clinical demands and resources. Creating a follow up clinic for PE patients after discharge from the hospital is an essential component of any PERT program. PERT programs, which have come together to form the PERT Consortium®, are changing the landscape of PE treatment and may represent a new standard of care.
