Summary
  • The blood bank of the St. Joseph Hospital in Lexington, Kentucky is cited as an example of how computerization of laboratory operations can enhance productivity and profitability. The blood bank operates to record and process data in a timely and accurate way using six networked PCs, a file server, and a pair of printers. The two key factors in their computerization selection process were: it had to be functionally complete--handling everything from donor inventory to patient records and billing; and it had to be affordable--costing less than $50,000 for the complete system. Use of a local area networking (LAN) approach offered both: system reliability gained through redundancy; and flexibility, allowing expansion of both hardware and software resources. Use of bar code readers was incorporated into the system to greatly reduce the possibility for human errors, and the system software was designed with a host of built-in safeguards for patient safety.
