First generation patient blood management (PBM) started-out with a focus on volume-reduction. This “first generation” approach was transaction focused and program centric. And in the absence of information systems or domain knowledge — it was a good place to start — but its not enough to address today’s Triple Aim ambitions.
PRI is leading the second generation of PBM (“PBM 2.0”) with patient-specific blood management solutions to address both transaction AND transformational demands. PBM 2.0 goes beyond saving money — it also permits making money AND making a difference for patients.
