Effectively monitoring blood utilization is difficult

Most labs struggle to obtain accurate and complete information on blood utilization, as the data needed to perform meaningful analysis isn’t available in any single system.

Labs end up pulling data from multiple systems and trying to retroactively connect the dots in Excel, an inefficient and ineffective process when resources are already stretched thin.

hc1 Blood Utilization™ provides hospital labs robust analytics to effectively and efficiently monitor whether blood products are being ordered and utilized appropriately. 

How do I get a complete picture of my organization's blood usage?
Is there a more automated way to access data from the EMR, LIS and BBLIS?
How do I pinpoint which providers or locations are giving inappropriate transfusions?
How do I track progress of interventions over time?

Save thousands on wasteful blood ordering

Blood transfusions are costly – the average price for a single unit of red blood cells is over $200, and indirect expenses like transport and overhead can raise that cost to over $1000.

Combine that with the fact that approximately 40-50% of blood transfusions are unnecessary, and it is a top priority for health system and hospital labs to know whether blood products are being ordered and utilized appropriately.

hc1 Blood Utilization consolidates blood data into a single system to give hospital labs a comprehensive view of key blood usage metrics, enabling lab leaders to take targeted action and track progress over time.
