Often misunderstood or underrated, anemia in presurgical patients is a red flag signaling potential increases in perioperative morbidity and transfusion-related complications. However, not only is this risk to both patient and hospital avoidable or reduceable, but anemia clinics are even demonstrating a cost benefit as important elements of a patient blood management program.
This step-by-step guide to launching a preoperative anemia management program takes you through the process, from building a smart business model and gaining buy-in and approval, to implementation, measuring results, and demonstrating value.
