MSoft steps up international expansion with expansion into German market

MSoft ESolutions : 13 March, 2013  (Company News)
MSoft eSolutions is to export the company's pioneering blood-tracking software to Germany after signing a deal to work with German healthcare hardware company Chip Card Solutions (CCS).

MSoft's Bloodhound solution controls access to and from all blood fridges with rigorous security and safety ensuring that only approved staff are allowed to access blood. The firm's blood-tracking solution provides positive identification of users and patients and in depth auditing of all bloods across each and every stage of the transfusion process - to help get the right blood into the right patient.

The software will be combined with CCS blood storage fridges, equipped with Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology, allowing the effective and uninterrupted documentation of the path taken by a blood transfusion in hospitals and blood donation centres.

Up to 200 stored blood units can be contained in one of the CCS fridges, which ensure the refrigeration of blood bags according to German DIN standard 58371.

Up to ten percent of all blood bags in Germany have to be disposed of with a corresponding financial loss of six figures for many hospitals.

Matt McAlister, Managing Director of MSoft eSolutions, said: "We are delighted to be partnering with CCS in the German healthcare market. By combining our unique Bloodhound software solution with CCS's blood storage fridges, we are able to improve levels of patient safety and help hospitals make significant financial saving"s.

"MSoft has now established strong relationships in Germany and Australia and is actively looking to develop its international footprint further over the coming year."

Dr Klaus Lange, Chief Executive Officer of Chip Card Solutions, said: "The number of transfusions which become unusable can be significantly reduced with our new solution. Additionally, security for the patient is increased. We are very glad to have found a partner in MSoft that brings an enormous amount of experience in the area of stored blood management, and we are confident that we will be in position to make a contribution to the continued development of stored blood management in Germany."

The combination of MSoft's Bloodhound solution and RFID fridges from CCS means there is exact documentation regarding which employee took stored blood from refrigerated storage and for how long it was outside of the cold chain. Additionally, with the aid of technology, it can be ensured that patients only receive the transfusions that are intended for them. Through this precise monitoring of the cold chain and the dispensing of blood bags, the need for stored blood will reduce and hence the costs associated with it.

CCS's M2B fridges communicate wirelessly via RFID with readable labels on blood bags which register removal. In the process, the readable labels contain the donation number, the product code and patient-specific information. Once the fridges are connected via a mobile phone network to the preset ERP system SAP Business One and the MSoft Bloodhound solution, there is an automatic link between RFID inventory capture and the IT system.

Customers do not need to have an interface programmed in order to connect the cabinets to the software.
