Appropriate Inventory Management
Appropriate Inventory Management (AIM) provides blood centers and hospitals a tool to better manage and use the available blood supply. It is hospital blood utilization and patient outcome analysis software that helps lower the risk of transfusion complications, the cost of blood transfusions and increases availability of products in the local blood supply.
AIM tracks blood inventory through utilization and provides patient outcome analyses for the hospital's identification and monitoring of Key Performance Indicators. Blood centers and their client hospital users have access to more than 180 reports and dashboards.
AIM promotes accreditation compliance, reduces wastage experiences and blood product transfusions with the use of national benchmarking reports, assists with improving the efficiency and efficacy of patient care.
Users are able to evaluate their patient population by demographics and diagnosis groups to determine the percentage occurrence of transfusions for nine distinct product groups.AIM software is exclusively available to all members of America’s Blood Centers.
