    Decrease Blood Wastage with Reliable, Validated Blood Storage and Blood Transport Products

    Each year, twenty-one million blood products are transfused in the U.S.

    Unfortunately, 200,000 to 1 million units of this valuable resource are wasted, costing between $46 million to $230 million.(1)

    Studies show the causes of blood wastage may include:

    • Improper storage of transported blood products
    • Failure to return blood products that are unused within 30 min from issue
    • Blood products returned out of temperature

    Less than 10% of the U.S. population donates blood, yet 4.5 million Americans need a blood transfusion each year.(2) At the time this article was written, only 14% of community blood centers across the U.S. have a blood supply of three+ days.(3) Donated blood is rarely, if ever, in abundance.

    Facilities can’t afford blood wastage, and neither can their patients.

    Transporting and storing blood products requires reliable, validated products to assist in diligent temperature monitoring from start to finish. MED Alliance Group is proud to offer a variety of blood storage and transportation products to help healthcare providers decrease blood wastage and increase cost-savings.
