Description

The term “good metrics” is often used in patient blood management (PBM) programs, but to many, obtaining them remains a challenge. This session will present quality metrics (e.g., pre- and post-transfusion hemoglobin and single-unit transfusions), review outcome measures when limiting transfusion, and discuss the financial benefits of good stewardship. Results of a survey conducted amongst AABB members on challenges to obtaining good actionable PBM metrics will be presented. This will be followed by a discussion on how to expand a PBM program from within your own institution to a hospital system or regional group of hospitals and how your blood center can play a supportive role. The session will conclude by demonstrating how survey tools and polished presentations, with the proper format and delivery, will highlight your PBM program’s presence and successes and expand awareness within your institution.

Learning Objectives:
  • Illustrate what are considered “good metrics” and how you can use these tools to benchmark your facility against itself and others.
  • Interpret results of a poll conducted amongst AABB members of what they considered to be the greatest challenges to obtaining "good metrics".
  • Utilize survey tools and examine how proper formatting of presentations and delivering data can ensure that “good metrics” are shared within your facility to expand awareness.
