Risk of bleeding lower on rivaroxaban than warfarin, and no monitoring required. Predictable effect means no routine tests. Much easier than mucking around with INRs. Dabigatran similarly useful (and reversible if needed). I use a fair amount of dabigatran but we don’t have rivaroxaban in NZ; from a personal perspective Dad was on it a while back and it was all very easy.

Edited to add: much easier for travel as usually unaffected by acute GI upset etc (unlike warfarin)
