BLOOD BANK MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
(Coin the Future)
Paradoxically, very few blood banks are operating to their full capacity. Inappropriate use of blood and wastage is not an un-common occurrence. Even during an emergency, the onus is on the patient's relatives to arrange for replacement of blood.
In order to explore all these issues an efficient blood bank management system (BBMS) is required, with the aim of ensuring that every patient has access to an adequate quantity of safe blood. BBMS is a complete blood bank management solution that covers all the activities of a blood bank with Geographic Information System (GIS).
The aim of this paper is to create a GIS application that covers some of the blood bank management issues related to particular region. The application is designed to achieve the analysis of the spatial distribution of donors, which shows how GIS can be used quickly to locate the blood donors of the required blood group near to a given blood bank location on a GIS based map of regions. It creates a GIS based database to determine and visualize catchments of donors to a particular blood bank. All these are available on a web application including finding nearest blood bank with the availability of the required group of blood at right time and right place. It develops a computerized supply chain management and distribution system.
This web based blood bank service portal also provides awareness generation to facilitate the coordination between the need of blood during emergency, arrangement of blood donors and blood banks. This system will help the citizens in finding the availability of blood, service directory, FAQ for citizens, online donor registration and Awareness generation.
How it works? This integrated system will have a centralized office. People who are willing to donate blood will voluntarily register online with their blood group, location and other details. The Centralized office will maintain all the data of interested donors segregated by location and blood group along with the local community blood banks. The Centralized office will be networked with all the partner health centers/hospitals and blood banks so that real time information can be transferred.
When a requirement for blood comes to a partner hospital immediately the information is transmitted to the centralized office which performs two transactions, it sends a message to all individual volunteers in that particular area/location having that similar blood group, it sends a message to all the community blood banks present in that area with rapid feedback action.
All partner hospitals/health centers are classified into three categories A, B & C based on the fees charged by them to their patients and accordingly we will be charging them for the blood. This purposeful discrimination in terms of pricing is done in order to cater to the needs of the society which includes all rich and poor.
