Development of Blood Bank Management Program with Personal Computer for Small to Medium Size Hospitals


A recently increased need to a computerized program for correct management of grouping and dealing of bloods at small to mize hospitals made us develope the blood bank management program with a personal computer. Some hardwares(PC 486, bar code reader and printer) and softwares(Microsoft Foxpro version 2.5 for main development and Hanmac 2.5 for Korean BIOS) were used as materials, and frequent upgrades were performed during the develpment period. The program was consisted of eight main functions including grouping, input, output, reinput and expire of bloods, and autotransfusion, apheresis and directed transfusion. The program may be a good tool to reduce blood accidents and to enhance quality of blood banks at small to medium size hospitals.
