Companies mentioned in this article: G2 Intelligence

KEENE, N.H. -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- G2 Intelligence — a 30+ year leader in research, reporting, and analysis on the business of the diagnostic laboratory industry — announces the release of Advanced Blood Management: Generate Significant Savings While Improving Patient Outcomes. This all-new study provides an unprecedented look at the value that restrictive protocols can bring to both the financial and the population health of hospitals and health institutions that utilize blood products for all types of patient care (e.g., cardiac surgery, critical care, etc.).

“Recent evidence has shown that transfusions raise the rates of a number of serious complications, among them circulatory overload, acute lung injury and respiratory failure, and sepsis,” according to Associate Director of G2 Intelligence’s Advisory Services, and the report’s lead analyst, Jennifer Musumeci, MS. “We found that ample opportunity exists for organizations to reduce blood utilization, cut adverse events, decrease length of stay, and provide cost savings — by embracing the new value-based paradigm and employing smarter blood management protocols.”

The research includes a wealth of actionable, must-have intelligence, including:

  • A discussion of the national landscape for blood product utilization, plus:
    • An exploration of the variance in approaches to managing blood products and attempts by the health care industry at standardization
    • An in-depth look at the extent of the utilization problem
  • Key barriers hospitals face in developing and implementing new blood protocols, with:
    • A detailed analysis of potential savings through cost-modeling of patient blood management interventions for hospitals of varying sizes
    • The key features necessary to implement a blood management program through examining highlights from case studies of existing successful programs
  • A qualitative analysis of:
    • Trends that will shape and have the greatest impact on the blood product market going forward
    • Strategic insights on the opportunities available to pathologists and other health care leaders to take a lead in managing blood utilization in a value-based payment and care paradigm.

“This is, quite simply, the ultimate resource for health institutions that utilize blood products,” adds L. Eleanor Herriman, M.D., MBA, contributing analyst and Managing Director of G2 Intelligence Advisory Services. “Everyone from hospital administrators, quality, safety officers, medical directors and blood bank leadership can benefit from the succinct, accessible data in this unique report.”
