Through its Medical Advisory Committee, Versiti seeks to maintain open communication with the hospital-based transfusion groups we serve. The committee consists of physicians representing our hospital customers, communities and Versiti physicians and staff to create best transfusion practices for hospitals.
The mission of the Medical Advisory Committee is to keep our customers abreast of new and impending developments in the field of transfusion medicine. Typically, these developments relate to transfusion-transmitted diseases, infectious disease testing, regulatory changes and other areas that may impact transfusion services and blood banks.
The committee also serves as a forum for members to provide feedback to Versiti on issues of concern. Members are invited to contribute to the committee’s agenda, and may do so by contacting committee chairman, Jerome L. Gottschall, M.D.
