Blood SMS is a web and mobile based integrated solution implemented in collaboration with the National Blood Transfusion Service (NBTS), aiding the NBTS in blood donor management and internal blood stock information management. The service was first implemented in year 2002, allowing people to register to the web based donor database at NBTS through an SMS.
The NBTS in turn were able to send SMS alerts to the registered donors for emergency blood requirements. The improved SMS blood management system has advanced features where donors can not only register using SMS but also access their donor profile through a USSD menu. This provides useful information including the blood type, blood donation history and location based closest donation centers. Additionally, the solution contains an android app through which regional blood collection centers can update the blood stock information regularly, enabling the NBTS to provide an efficient service in emergency situations.
The overall blood SMS solution links together the National Blood Center, regional blood bank network and the island wide blood donor base enabling the NBTS to provide an efficient service.
The improved Blood SMS System integrates the donors, collection centers and NBTS via a multi functional platform and has improved the efficiency of the service. The database of the donors with their profiles, the ability to locate donors quickly at the closest location; blood banks island wide linking donors and the android app developed to keep up to date stock records of blood make this solution exemplarily.
