PATIENT BLOOD MANAGEMENT DATA

Save money and improve patient outcomes

Patient Blood Management Data

Customers using our unique Patient Blood Management (PBM) program have seen a reduction in blood-related costs, fewer readmissions, and reduced length of stay. These results stem from our patient-centered commitment to high-quality outcomes that drive both clinical and economic value in healthcare. Drawing on our expertise in cardiovascular perfusion, our program features four cornerstones of care: anemia management, coagulation optimization, interdisciplinary blood conservation modalities, and patient-centered decision-making. We provide both consulting and implementation to help you manage the challenges of change—we are your engaged partner.

Blood transfusion overuse continues to be a significant concern in today’s healthcare environment. Studies show that 40-60 percent of blood transfusions are inappropriate. A recent study evaluated 494 publications using an expert panel to systematically assess transfusion appropriateness, defined as the likelihood of improving health outcomes

WHAT IS PBM?

Our customers saw some impressive results from their PBM program:

  • 15-20 percent reduction in blood-related costs in the first year
  • A PBM program helped one customer experience 43 percent fewer readmissions
  • 16-33 percent reduced length of stay

More specifically, when SpecialtyCare implemented a quality improvement strategy at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital to reduce unnecessary transfusions and blood wastage, the results after two years proved that an effectively managed PBM program can:

  • Reduce blood product utilization
  • Lower RBC unit waste
  • Reduce spending on blood products and associated complications

 

Results concluded:

  • 12,654 fewer blood component units transfused over 2 years
  • 22% reduction in packed red blood cell transfusion rate over 2 years
  • Over $4M in total savings over 2 years
  • Blood product cost/patient reduced 33% from baseline
  • PBM program overall ROI 277%,
  • Annual ROI 138%
