BloodSmart is a comprehensive, evidence-based transfusion management program that improves patient care -- and your bottom line.
BloodSmart is staffed by a highly regarded, experienced team of medical professionals, some of whom have been providing consultation to hospital customers for more than two decades. This transfusion management program was developed at the side of transfusion medicine colleagues to optimize transfusion decisions and avoid the inappropriate use of blood and blood products.
Our proven transfusion management program:
Hospitals that have used our services show up to 30 percent fewer transfusions compared with the national average.
BloodSmart is a transfusion management program founded by BloodSource, one of the nation's leading blood centers with more than 60 years experience in managing and providing blood and blood products to hospitals and blood centers across the country. BloodSource created BloodSmart to provide optimal blood management resources. BloodSource is now part of Blood Systems, Inc. (BSI). Blood Systems is one of the nation’s largest and most comprehensive nonprofit transfusion medicine organizations. This change allows access to increased educational and transfusion medicine resources while continuing to serve our community partners with excellence.
For nearly two decades, the BloodSmart team has offered its hospital partners a comprehensive blood management program to improve patient outcomes, speed recovery times and shorten hospital stays. Our transfusion medicine specialists help control transfusion associated costs by providing evidence-based solutions for blood utilization. Hospitals served by BloodSource have a significantly lower blood utilization rate compared to U.S. hospitals overall.
The new procedures and techniques developed by the BloodSmart team in partnership with physicians, scientists, nurses, specialists, volunteers and donors have proven invaluable in the practice of transfusion medicine throughout the world.
