This is the start of a series of posts on how Medinfo blood bank software was designed for product delivery in the HMC system in Doha.
The overall process was:
- Transfer blood components (all types) from the Blood Donor using the Interdepot Transfer process (see that post for details) to the Hamad General Hospital HGH General Delivery Deposit.
- Release components to individual HMC system hospitals and client blood banks from the HGH General Delivery Deposit,.
It was also possible to release blood components directly from the Blood Donor Center to HMC hospital blood banks as a contingency. Client hospitals outside the HMC system still had to obtain their components from HGH General Delivery Deposit.
