Consolidated software solutions for optimal efficiency in the workplace

 

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.

 

CHALLENGES

While the MD Anderson Cancer Center is known for being one of the premier hospitals for cancer care, the hospital recently sought out a more effective and efficient method of managing their quality control processes.

The hospital’s previous software solutions consisted of multiple vendors that produced redundant data entry and associated errors. Additionally, the multitude of software solutions being used required the hospital to host them on their existing Information Technology Infrastructure. The issues to address with the hospital were as follows:

  • Replacing EOL software platform for QC management
  • Lightening the requirement on IT hardware
  • Automate QC, Platelet Apheresis, and analytics in the Donor & Transfusion Department

Solutions

Knowing an effective, efficient, and compliant software solution is vital to the hospital, the PERFEQTA team worked hand-in-hand with the team at MD Anderson Cancer Center to create a scalable solution to span the client’s needs. After discussions, the following solutions were successfully implemented:

  • Sigma Blood Systems QC Manager & Platelet Manager for blood products
  • PERFEQTA for QC form standardization and automation

“After using the PERFEQTA platform, MD Anderson users reported that PERFEQTA made a great impact to their daily operations. They praised PERFEQTA’s intuitive design, flexibility, ease of use and the support received from the PERFEQTA team. The platform scored exceptional marks in regard to reliability and the implementation process.”
