Interbit Data’s NetSafe Solution Keeps One Health System’s Blood Bank Flowing

Our client is a midwestern community-based healthcare system that offers care in 33 medical specialties and serves 20 communities.

When the health system decided to make the switch from MEDITECH to Epic in 2016, they wanted the assurance that the consistent, seamless access to patient data they’d come to expect from NetSafe would carry over to their new EMR, and so they chose to continue working with Interbit Data after the EMR switch.

One important area where NetSafe was necessary was the health system’s blood bank. Vital data in the blood bank system includes which pints of blood have been tested and certified, blood type, and inventory information for each location. “During a system downtime, if a surgeon needs several pints of blood in the middle of an emergency surgery, we need to be able to respond, to know what we have on hand and that we can get the blood where it needs to go right away.” The absence of such information during a downtime can be a matter of life or death.Fill out the form below and download the full case study to learn:
