Haemonetics--focused on helping customers optimize their blood management practices
Our mission: preventing a blood transfusion to the patient to doesn't need one
and providing the right blood product, at the right time, in the right dose, to the right patient who does
Haemonetics' goal is to help customers improve safety and clinical outcomes,
simplify and streamline the process of blood management,
and reduce costs, errors, and waste
Join us on what we call the "journey from arm to arm"
to learn how Haemonetics products and solutions are transforming blood management
from donor to patient,
from blood center to hospital floor,
from supply to demand
Information is critical for blood management optimization,
and reviewing and analyzing data within existing systems
is the first step on the path to connecting key processes
"I want to go over to the metrics of our blood transfusion usage"
IMPACT Online, our proprietary blood management business intelligence portal, helps our customers
track their blood use and subsequent clinical outcomes
with tools that compile and convert information into convenient, easy-to-view
"blood-centric" dashboards and interactive tables
Individual, disparate data points are converted into "actionable" information
that help advance the development of best practices in blood management,
guide transfusion practices, and provide ongoing measurement to change behavior in hospitals
and blood centers alike
ultimately leading to better patient care at lower costs
Achieving optimal blood management efficiency requires integrating information
throughout the blood management continuum
from recruitment to blood collection
from testing--to inventory--to transfusion
Imagine an integrated network, where software devices communicate--
with each other
with blood centers
with testing labs--with hospitals--even with donors
Our "journey arm to arm" spans this continuum
and begins with a blood center finding a blood drive sponsor and recruiting donors
"Hi, this is Eric from the blood drive." Over 70% of blood is collected on mobile drives
Blood centers must manage hundreds of blood drives a month
and preparing for each drive is similar to moving a manufacturing operation to a new location every day
Our Hemasphere software is designed to help blood centers manage, organize, and measure
mobile-drive productivity
But no drive is successful without the necessary donors to fulfill collection goals
With Haemonetics' eDonor software, blood centers can readily identify and communicate with
eligible donors
and schedule them to appropriate blood drives
eDonor provides donors easy, convenient, and personalized online access to schedule their own appointment
and fosters donor retention through customized loyalty programs and a variety of communications
Both Hemasphere and eDonor help
blood centers improve efficiencies within their blood drive operations
and help them target
--and retain--the donors they need
Once a mobile drive is planned and donors have arrived to donate,
they must complete health history questionnaires
"Brian David"
Health history questions cover of a variety of topics
to verify that the donor is healthy to donate and to screen out, or defer, those who are not
One of the biggest challenges for blood centers
is ensuring health histories are completed accurately
Donor Doc automates donor health history intake
by providing donors with a private and automated method
to answer these personal questions
Automated questionnaires elicit more honest answers, assuring more accurate health histories
and a safer blood supply
Once the questionnaire is validated,
Donor Doc alerts our eLynx device
that the donor is cleared to donate
Notice that up to this point--just prior to collection
these administrative tasks are electronic and paperless
improving compliance and documentation accuracy while significantly reducing waste
Mobile drives are performed in all types of surroundings
gymnasiums - church basements - conference rooms
and no matter where they occur,
a highly-controlled and regulated manufacturing environment is required to ensure
process control,
product quality,
and donor safety
Today, most documentation is done manually, with pen and paper
A simple error, such as the recording the start time after the stop time, may require the donation to be discarded
eLynx is a handheld, paperless workflow system
that automates the data collection process,
provides alerts to prevent errors, and significantly reduces the potential for manual mistakes
The combination of our eLynx workflow system, available today, in conjunction with
our future wireless tower and communication modules
will enable collections staff to set up
"command central"
at any mobile drive setting
and automatically integrate wireless devices and software connectivity
at the push of a single button
At a blood drive there are two primary means of collecting blood:
whole blood
and apheresis
Whole blood collection is a simple process where a donor simply drips into a bloodbag
filled with anticoagulant
Apheresis collects more of the blood component that is in demand
For example, two units of red blood cells,
while returning unneeded blood components back to the donor
In whole blood collection, we are reengineering our Sebra rocker scales to integrate with
our wireless, handheld eLynx technology,
to help our customers advance efficiencies and controls
We are also developing a sophisticated Automated Whole Blood solution--which includes
a smart collection device,
wireless connectivity, and transport monitoring--
to streamline the blood collection process, reduce waste, facilitate regulatory compliance,
and save money
Our Sebra products, such as transport cases, donor lounges, rocker scales, and sealers help
round out our collection portfolio
Most blood collected on mobile drives are transported in plastic picnic coolers filled with ice packs
Our TempTrace module, now in development,
will electronically monitor and document appropriate temperature conditions post-collection
until the collected units are logged at the testing lab
Before collected blood becomes available for transfusion,
each unit must be tested
and results communicated back to the blood center
Haemonetics' Surround software is specifically designed for use by testing laboratories
to help them efficiently collect, manage, and communicate these results
The entire testing process, and all associated data handling
can be managed by our ElDorado Donor system
which provides enterprise management for the entire blood center
and serves as a system of record for regulatory compliance
simplifying documentation and workflow
Once the unit of blood has been processed and released with all required documentation,
it can be transported to the hospital blood bank for storage
A hospital's Transfusion Service is responsible for
assuring appropriate and timely blood supply to all patients
The market leader in managing hospital transfusion service operations is our SafeTrace Tx system
which builds patient profiles by compiling data from hospital information systems,
blood banks,
and real-time hematology results and
electronically tracks units inventoried, shipped, transferred, quarantined, or wasted
In general, hospitals want to transfuse patients only when medically necessary
TEG is a diagnostic device
that helps clinicians determine a patient's clotting condition
before, during, and after surgery
Armed with this information, a clinician can intervene and ensure their patient does not
bleed excessively nor receive unnecessary transfusions
Another way of preventing a banked blood transfusion is autotransfusion
a process Haemonetics invented and continues to lead
--and innovate--salvages blood lost during and after surgery
and makes it available for reinfusion,
thereby preventing unnecessary allogeneic transfusions,
as the patient receives their own fresh blood back
If an allogeneic transfusion cannot be avoided through autotransfusion or thromboelastography,
Haemonetics' BloodTrack system helps ensure that the right blood product is transfused
to the right patient at the right time
BloodTrack, an automated blood inventory management system,
makes it possible for transfusion service staff to monitor temperature,
inventory, and access of blood units stored remotely on patient floors
Uncrossmatched blood is stored in Haemonetics' "smart" refrigerator, the BloodTrack HemoSafe,
and automatically crossmatched and dispensed when needed
With BloodTrack,
blood components can now be transfused
instead of ordered
For patients who need banked blood,
it is essential that the right blood be delivered to them quickly and safely
Nurses use our handheld BloodTrack Tx device at the patient's bedside
to verify the patient wristband
and the blood product
Upon positive verification, the nurse transfuses the blood and BloodTrack Tx automatically
uploads the transfusion data
to the BloodTrack server
Our BloodTrack suite is another important supply chain management tool, ideally suited to help
hospitals ensure better process control, reduce waste, improve documentation, and realize savings
From collection to transfusion, "the journey from arm to arm,"
Our vision is to connect all these devices and software products through shared information
Imagine BloodTrack communicating with the hospital's SafeTrace Tx system,
which communicates with a blood center's ElDorado Donor system on the ultimate disposition of blood
ElDorado Donor
communicating with eDonor
to send a "thank you" to the donor whose blood
was used to save a life that day
Then, through eLynx, notifying the blood center to collect a specific blood product
at the next drive
and integration of hardware and software
are powerful solutions
used to help optimize blood management
from recruitment to blood collection--to testing --to blood banking--to transfusion--spanning the
entire blood chain
