With the onset and continued presence of the COVID-19 pandemic, global healthcare is challenged with critical shortages of equipment, facilities and impediments to blood supply. Implementation of PBM practices can help in this endeavor by focusing on evidence-based bundles of care to optimize both medical and surgical patients, thus limiting or eliminating the need for blood transfusions. This webinar series will help in this endeavor by bringing the latest PBM information to healthcare providers globally.
This series of webinars includes live question-and-answer sessions. Learn more.

"As an administrator, you don’t often have something presented to you that improves patient safety, improves clinical outcomes, quality of care -- and also saves money. And that’s exactly what a PBM program does.” - Larry Burns, FACHE, SABM Advisory Director

Anemia is a condition that indicates there are not enough red blood cells in your circulation to transport sufficient amounts of oxygen to your body’s tissues. Oxygen acts like fuel—it provides energy for your muscles and organs to work. With anemia, other body systems have to compensate to deliver an adequate amount of oxygen to the tissues. For example, the heart beats faster and breathing becomes more rapid as the lungs take in air.
