Issue Blood

Bloodhound banner 3Using the BloodHound Kiosk to control access to blood fridges, BloodHound has been developed with intuitive usability in mind and as such the system process is easy to follow with visual prompting at every stage – it really is as simple as using a kiosk at the supermarket

BLOODBAG3Bloodhound is fully compatible with Barcode & PIN Access Cards or with ‘Anti-Card Swap’ technologies such as Biometric fingerprint technology as well as SMART cards, CHIP & PIN cards and Active Directory Single-Sign-On Hospital wide systems. The kiosk and Bedside PDA’s talk in real time to the server based application (Hub) ensuring end to end blood tracking integrity. The system also knows how long the blood products have been out of the refrigerators and how transit occurred, by hand or even RFID tagged blood transit boxes – it will even alert the user when a unit is about to expire in transit.

An Emergency Blood Access button is provided on the kiosk and can be configured to either allow access after login or access without login – This is completely configurable by the system administrator for each kiosk. Any time the Emergency Access button is used the kiosk sounds an alert and an audible & visual alert is sent to the laboratory. A Full Audit of who, what,  when and where is recorded at point of access.
