BloodTrack® is a modular suite of blood management and bedside transfusion solutions that combine software with hardware components to act as an extension of your Blood Bank Information System (BBIS).
BloodTrack solutions provide the control, visibility and traceability needed to safely and properly store and dispense blood products at the point-of-care and verify that the right blood is transfused to the right patient at the bedside.
The integrated modules within the BloodTrack suite of solutions help to ensure that each link in the blood supply chain is optimized to reduce blood bank workload, eliminate waste and provide better care.

Software that controls, verifies and monitors emergency and crossmatched blood products in clinical areas.
Software that quickly allocates the right blood product to the right patient where and when it's needed.
Software that provides nurses and clinicians with a real-time view of blood inventory and patient transfusion status.
Software that electronically verifies the right blood is transfused to the right patient at the bedside.
All of the modules are connected to a centralized control and management software called BloodTrack Manager®, which is typically located in the blood bank. BloodTrack Manager provides a centralized view of actionable, real-time hospital-wide blood product inventory, patient transfusion activity data and real-time alerts.
Enhance patient safety
Improve efficiencies and help reduce costs

Help ensure compliance with regulations and guidelines
1American College of Surgeons (ACS) Trauma Quality Improvement Program (TQIP) Massive Transfusion in Trauma Guidelines recommends ‘Universally compatible RBC and thawed plasma should be immediately available and ideally stored in the emergency department (ED).’
The BloodTrack suite of modular software solutions acts as an extension of your blood bank information system (BBIS) to physically secure and electronically verify and monitor your hospital’s blood supply chain to ensure the right blood product is transfused to the right patient, at the right time, in the right condition.
With integrated modules, BloodTrack Solutions are able to control, track, and monitor blood products, including plasma derivatives, by securing new or existing storage locations (e.g., refrigerators, room temperature cabinets, or freezers) with software-controlled electromagnetic locks connected to a BloodTrack kiosk or through an integrated BloodTrack OnDemand™ device.
BloodTrack Solutions electronically documents user access, blood product movements, and out-of-storage times, helping you achieve compliance with your regulations, guidelines, and standard operating procedures (SOPs) — in effect extending the walls of your blood bank to the point-of-care. This provides you with the visibility needed to make informed, real-time decisions to help ensure timely patient care, patient safety, and regulatory compliance.
Plus, institutions that have implemented BloodTrack modules in strategic locations have seen an increase in patient safety, a decrease in blood inventory, a reduction in blood waste, and a significant improvement in efficiency.
BloodTrack’s suite of modular solutions extends your Transfusion Management System (using SafeTrace Tx® or other system) to the point-of-care. All modules are controlled by BloodTrack Manager™.
The integrated modules within the BloodTrack suite of solutions helps to ensure that each link in the blood supply chain is optimized to reduce costs, eliminate waste, and provide better patient care. These modules fall under the following three categories: Blood Inventory Management, Just-in-Time Blood Product Allocation, and Bedside Transfusion Verification.All of the modules are connected to a centralized control and management system called BloodTrack Manager™. BloodTrack Manager is located in the blood bank and provides a centralized view of actionable, real-time hospital-wide blood product inventory, patient transfusion activity data, and real-time alerts allowing the blood bank to monitor and track blood products and access to BloodTrack-controlled storage locations and to help ensure compliance and patient safety.
The BloodTrack suite of modular software solutions provides you with visibility, traceability, and proactive monitoring of blood inventory stored outside of the blood bank, and also helps to ensure positive patient identification at the bedside for transfusion. From a caregiver perspective, BloodTrack Solutions can help improve your access to routine and emergency blood products and plasma-derived products by storing and dispensing them at the point-of-care. It can also eliminate or reduce the hassle of manually completing paperwork required by your blood bank since transactions and movements (staff, unit, patient, time), including transfusion documentation, are recorded electronically.
Institutions that have deployed BloodTrack Solutions have gained efficiencies, lowered costs, reduced crossmatch to transfusion (C/T) ratios, and experienced an overall improvement in patient care by reducing the time to transfusion.
By implementing BloodTrack Solutions you can help your organization:
When a patient needs a transfusion, authorized personnel go to the BloodTrack kiosk or BloodTrack OnDemand device and identify themselves, as well as the patient. Depending upon the nature of the need, either an emergency release is activated, or known patient request is made at the kiosk, using a pick-up slip or manually entering the patient's medical record number (MRN). The blood product dispensing and labeling process proceeds according to the configuration of the BloodTrack software, the type of interface with the transfusion management system, and the patient’s requirements.
A complete audit trail of all events related to a blood product or plasma-derived product is recorded — from the time the authorized user accesses this kiosk, to the verification of the right blood, right patient at the bedside.
Each time that a blood or plasma-derived product is handled, the BloodTrack software verifies the following:
No. Only trained and authorized users are able to access BloodTrack kiosks and BloodTrack OnDemand devices. Users must present credentials (e.g., badge, pin number, or other site-defined identification process) at the BloodTrack kiosk or BloodTrack OnDemand device, which verifies that the person accessing it is authorized to do so.
The HaemoBank, HemoSafe, and HemoNine BloodTrack OnDemand devices (sometimes referred to as ‘’smart refrigerators’’ or ‘’blood vending machines’’) secure, track, monitor, and remotely allocate unassigned, crossmatched, and emergency blood products as well as plasma-derived products just-in-time, at the point-of-care.
The process of remotely allocating and dispensing blood products “just-in-time” using the BloodTrack OnDemand solutions (HaemoBank, HemoSafe and HemoNine) is identical.

BloodTrack is an electronic information management system intended for use in healthcare and collection facilities by trained healthcare professionals to help prevent latent errors by monitoring the reception, handling, transportation and transfusion of blood, blood products and plasma derivatives (Units).
BloodTrack can enhance transfusion safety by providing for positive patient identification at the bedside and can advise the caregiver whether a transfusion would be compliant with healthcare or collection facility standard operating procedures (SOPs).
BloodTrack can also reduce the risk of a healthcare professional retrieving the wrong Unit for a patient and facilitate Remote Allocation, a process where Units are allocated to, and labelled for, a patient at a BloodTrack managed storage location.
BloodTrack maintains an audit trail of each movement of, and event associated with, the Unit, from activation in the BloodTrack system through to final disposition, in real-time, which can be remotely stored, displayed, monitored and printed.
