BloodCenter of Wisconsin Launches Pilot Program to Digitally Track Blood Via RFID

BloodCenter of Wisconsin, part of Versiti, and Fresenius Kabi, have launched a pilot program at Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin using radio frequency identification technology (RFID) to digitally track blood usage and inventory. As part of the pilot, the program will use specialized RFID tags applied to blood bags prior to shipment to hospitals that can automatically as the blood moves through the hospital, and to the point at which it is used to treat patients.  This process allows for real-time information designed to help health care professionals optimize the availability of their blood supply.
