Frequently Asked Questions
Anemia Management Brochure
When anemia isn’t caught in time, it can result in poor patient outcomes, unplanned transfusions, or cancellation of surgery – all costly challenges for hospitals. MyBloodHealth® solves this problem by identifying anemic patients scheduled for nonemergent, high blood loss, elective surgeries – and providing the clinicians a software to help create a treatment plan before surgery. MyBloodHealth’s virtual platform can be used systemwide for a uniform approach to anemia management.
Manual Versus Automated Anemia Management Process
Simply put, manual anemia management processes can lead to multiple checkpoints, several handoffs, data risks, and headaches. When it comes to anemia patients, don’t you want to provide the best quality healthcare possible? With MyBloodHealth’s automated process, you can.
Features & Benefits
What if there was a way to streamline treatment, better prepare patients with anemia for surgery, and reduce cost? There is! It’s called MyBloodHealth®, which is a patented anemia management system that can help you better identify patients, avoid unnecessary blood transfusions, prevent complications, and most importantly, increase your patients’ satisfaction.
THE FUTURE OF ANEMIA MANAGEMENT
Anemia affects more than 18 million Americans, and the percentage of surgical patients with anemia is sky-high – estimated at 30 to 40 percent. Anemia correlates with worse surgical outcomes, longer length of stay, increased blood transfusion and readmission rates, and higher costs for health systems. Yet despite this, more than half of the patient blood management health system leaders we surveyed in 2020 (60 percent) reported that their health systems did not have an anemia management system in place.
REDUCING RESOURCE UTILIZATION WITH COMPREHENSIVE ANEMIA CARE
Anemia affects up to 40 percent of surgical patients, yet it is often overlooked and undertreated before surgery. Health systems across the country are relying on an outdated paradigm that considers anemia a relatively harmless condition. In other words, it’s not a big deal for patients, so why treat it? But the reality is, anemia is far from harmless.
HOW ANEMIA MANAGEMENT BECAME VIRTUAL
Most health systems rely on outdated manual anemia management processes. And while some acknowledge that the way they’re working is clunky and out of date, others may say, “it’s not that bad.” Let’s look a bit closer at what manual anemia management entails.
