Intended Audience: Physicians, Managers/Supervisors, CEOs/CFOs


  • Develop a basic understanding of RFID technology and standards for RFID use in the blood supply chain.
  • Review the importance of process with technology analysis and measuring improvement when implementing technology changes.
  • Discuss real-life perspective on introducing RFID into a large blood center and hospital.

Event Description: This is a follow-up session to review and report on the journey of a consortium of several blood centers, hospitals, academic and technology partners to bring an RFID solution to the blood industry. This session will provide initial results of actual use of RFID in a blood center environment. The session also provides a basic foundation in RFID technology, an analysis of where and why RFID was deployed and used, as well as insights into the actual gains versus those anticipated in early phases of this ambitious study and solution development. During this session, ICCBBA will present its One World Award to Clive Hohberger, PhD, recognizing his significant contribution to the understanding and application of international information standards in transfusion and transplantation medicine.
