Needs and Uses: EBMS is a family of related automated information systems (AIS) comprised of two separate and distinct commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) software applications that provides the Military Health System (MHS) with a comprehensive enterprise wide Blood Donor Management System (BDMS) and a Blood Management Blood Bank and Transfusion Service (BMBB/ TS). The Blood Donor Management System (BDMS) employs two separate COTS software applications, Mediware Corporation’s LifeTrak DonorTM and LifeTrak Lab & DistributionTM. BDMS is a technology modernization effort intended to enhance the DoD’s Blood Program capabilities for Donor Centers through the seamless integration of blood products inventory management, transport, availability, and most importantly, blood and blood products traceability from collection to disposition within the electronic health record (EHR). The Blood Management Blood Bank Transfusion Service (BMBB/TS) employs two separate COTS software applications, Mediware Corporation’s HCLLTM (Transfusion) and KnowledgeTrakTM (Learning Management). BMBB/TS is an effort intended to enhance the DoD’s Blood Program capabilities for a seamless integration of blood banking and transfusion activities, products inventory management, transport, availability, and most importantly traceability from transfusion to disposition or destruction within the electronic health record (EHR). EBMS has built-in safeguards to limit access and visibility of personal or sensitive information in accordance with the Privacy Act of 1974. The application will account for everyone that donates blood and receives a blood transfusion in the MHS—Active Duty, Reserves, National Guard, government civilian, contractors and volunteers assigned or borrowed—this also includes nonappropriated fund employees and foreign nationals.

FTA.
