Orissa Blood Banks

Blood Donation Goes online in Orissa

The 80 blood banks, including 56 banks of the Indian Red Cross Society, will be connected online with real time information on availability in various banks, said the official. National AIDS Control Organization  is funding the project.

The initiative in fact is  a great step as one can easily find out the blood availability anywhere during an emergency situation and a better knowledge about the daily need of blood.At present, if attendants of a patient don’t find blood of a particular group in a particular bank, they have to check with others individually, which is a lengthy process in an emergency situation. Among other things, major blood banks will have close circuit cameras to monitor activities on their premises.

The project would be implemented across Orissa  under the National Rural Health Scheme. Apart from digitizing information at the district blood banks, an online database of names, addresses and telephone numbers of voluntary blood bank will be maintained.

The initiative is a great help for patients and their inmates who have to pass through many hurdles to  get blood during the time of emergency.

    Hello there! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established blog. Is it very hard to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast. I’m thinking about setting up my own but I’m not sure where to start. Do you have any tips or suggestions? Thanks
