Increase in productivity and guaranteed compliance by automating work processes.
With PERFEQTA, the hospital consolidated multiple software modules from different vendors into one platform resulting in automated and efficient quality control processes, increased productivity, and optimized management of standardized protocols.
Hoxworth Blood Center, University of Cincinnati, was founded in 1938. Hoxworth is now serving 31 hospitals in 18 counties in Southwestern Ohio, Northern Kentucky, and Southeastern Indiana. Annually, Hoxworth collects more than 70,000 units of blood from local donors to help save the lives of patients in area hospitals.
The Hoxworth Blood Center identified several aspects of its operations that benefited from optimization, which improved quality control and efficiency. The outdated system made it challenging to manage inventory, hold Hoxworth team members accountable for specific tasks before and after blood drives, and work efficiently due to manual entry processes across various locations. Additionally, they suffered from a waste of time and diminished resources due to excess spending. Considering the state of their systems, the following issues were a top priority to address:
With several critical issues to address, the PERFEQTA team had immediate solutions to several of Hoxworth’s problems by merely utilizing some of the platform’s basic functionality. Automating all formerly manual processes showed considerable increases in team productivity and efficiency. Additionally we implemented solutions that specifically addressed their requirements and further optimized their business. The full suite of solutions and results for Hoxworth included:
