ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Biolog-id LLC, a developer of end-to-end blood safety solutions and a leader in connected health solutions, announced today that it’s expanding its partnership with University of Cincinnati’s Hoxworth Blood Center to include the management of Red Blood Cell Concentrates, the most commonly requested blood product, in its cutting-edge technology ecosystem across its enterprise.
The expanded partnership, aimed at improving the lives of patients requiring transfusions, leverages Biolog-id patented technology within Hoxworth facilities. The technology, Biolog-Transfusion®, tracks blood products throughout the supply chain, providing real-time visibility into inventory across locations, and collecting data, allowing for comprehensive analysis. This is the first expansion following the appointment of Troy Hilsenroth to CEO of Biolog-id LLC.
“I am thrilled to be expanding our partnership with Hoxworth Blood Center, a trusted organization within the industry, as we expand and grow Biolog-id’s North American presence,” said Troy L. Hilsenroth, CEO Biolog-id LLC. “With Hoxworth, we are committed to helping them achieve their vision by driving operational value and increasing clinical quality through our differentiated platform.”
Hoxworth Blood Center collects, tests, processes and distributes lifesaving blood to 31 hospitals and medical centers in Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana. The blood management ecosystem implemented at Hoxworth allows for the seamless addition of Red Blood Cells with a significant reduction of workload associated with the daily management of inventory and supports better data-driven decisions around the fulfilment of requests from the different hospitals.
"Our partnership with Biolog-id furthers our commitment to embracing innovative technologies to provide a reliable, safe supply of high value blood products to our patients,” said Jose A. Cancetas, Director of Hoxworth Blood Center. "The implementation of Biolog-id’s platform greatly improves the management and distribution of Platelet Concentrates and Red Blood Cell Concentrates as we look to maximize patient outcomes. We are excited for the expansion of our partnership to implement its innovative solutions across our enterprise.”
Biolog-id will be launching an additional pilot program in North America in Q4 2019 focused on the installation of its technology across another major healthcare network.
