E-Blood Bank

Introduction

e-Blood Bank is an integrated blood bank automation system which inter-connects all the blood banks of the State into a single network. It manages all activities starting from blood collection to issue of blood units to patients. The system also keeps record on voluntary donors, replacement donors etc with alerts and acknowledgement mechanism for donors and blood bank users.
