Global Med Technologies has announced that its Inlog subsidiary has licensed its EdgeTrack Transfusion software, marketed as Hemo Serveur in France, to five hospitals of Hospices Civils de Lyon, or HCL, representing 5,500 patient beds. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
According to Global Med Technologies, EdgeTrack transfusion management software provides a complete transfusion record, including patient information, pre and post-transfusion data tracking, tracing of blood components and comprehensive tracking of orders, making it easier for HCL’s technicians to provide appropriate blood products for patients.
EdgeTrack’s features will assist HCL hospitals in meeting the diverse needs of their large operation by improving their processes. It will also enhance workflow by sending and receiving data with the HCL patient management system, Crystal Net. The first phase includes installation of a centralized database serving all five hospitals with care units being progressively added once the initial five hospitals are live. Automation of the transfusion services project involves the Cardiology Hospital, Croix- Rousse Hospital, Edouard Herriot Hospital, Lyon Sud Hospital and Renee Sabran Hospital, added Global Med Technologies.
Will Willman, vice president of sales and marketing for EU/ME/Asia at Global Med Technologies, said: We are excited to now have one of the largest French public hospital systems, HCL, as a Global Med customer. This large prestigious hospital network, along with the EFS and 100 other French hospitals customers, indicates a strong customer preference for Global Med’s solutions in this market. Global Med and Inlog are proving to be a preferred supplier of IT solutions for blood transfusion management in Europe.
