AM21-65: Optimizing Electronic Medical Records for the Transfusion Service with Workflows, Clinical Decision Support and Dashboards

Oct 19, 2021 9:00pm ‐ Oct 19, 2021 10:00pm

Credits: None available.


Transfusions are the most commonly performed procedure in the United States and therefore require significant information technology investment for workflow optimization. This session will discuss easily implemented electronic medical record solutions to enhance transfusion service efficiency and safety. Topics that will be covered include: use of blood orders with clinical decision support in both adult and pediatric patients, tools to improve patient identification during specimen collection and blood administration, electronic integration of massive hemorrhage protocol and emergency release blood ordering and administration, enhancing clinical recognition of patients with red blood cell antibodies, and strategies to reduce collection of unacceptable specimens. Interactive transfusion clinical dashboards to improve blood bank communication with patient care teams will be illustrated.
