Chief Minister Katy Gallagher has announced the ACT joining up to the National Blood Authority’s BloodNet.
“Canberra Hospital, Calvary Hospital, Capital Pathology and Healthscope Pathology will all be using the newly introduced BloodNet system as of this week,” the Chief Minister said.
“BloodNet provides ACT Hospitals with a standardised electronic platform that enhances the visibility and transparency of online blood ordering and receipting systems.
“The system will provide laboratory staff with additional reporting capabilities and significant efficiencies in regards to tracking and tracing blood product orders placed with the Australian Red Cross Blood Service,” the Chief Minister said.
The BloodNet system is provided free of charge to all users across Australia, and is the nationally consistent electronic platform for blood product ordering and receipting processes.
