Maturity assessment model in PBM (MAPBM) to identify the variability of clinical transfusion and outcomes of the most relevant clinical processes
Transfusion is one of the most overused procedures with an important impact in outcomes. The clinical practice suffers from wide variability of results among hospitals for the same clinical process. Key performance indicators (KPIs) and benchmarking are extremely powerful tools to transform organizations. The aim of this study is to identify the transfusion variability and their influence in major outcomes using MAPBM tool.
MAPBM a Maturity assessment model to assist hospitals to develop “Patient Blood Management” to avoid unnecessary transfusion and improve safety
Patient Blood Management (PBM) is worldwide recognized as the best strategy to avoid unnecessary transfusions. It is a WHO recommendation for elective surgery since 2010, however, there is still limited implementation of PBM programs across hospitals and NHS, mainly due to the implicit challenges of its implementation. The purpose of this project is to validate a PBM maturity scorecard to serve the healthcare providers to assess, implement, measure and benchmark their PBM programs with the aim to reduce transfusion overuse and improve outcomes.
