Patient Blood Management
Our Patient Blood Management (PBM) program is our enhanced transfusion medicine solutions platform with an overreaching goal to provide the right blood product to the right patient at the right time. With support from dedicated, specially trained personnel, the PBM program is a collaborative partnership between a Versiti community blood center and the hospital to deliver sustained change through education, visible metrics and local presence. It is designed to deliver at least a 20% reduction in blood utilization over a 3-5 year period, and to improve efficiencies in the transfusion practice value chain.
