"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.
