The effective management of information related to the collection, screening, distribution and use of safe blood products is a critical element for all blood services. The Blood Safety Information System (BSIS) is an open source information system designed to manage donor and blood safety information from the point of donor registration to donation collection, through to laboratory testing, component processing and labeling, storage, and distribution to hospitals and clinics. The BSIS tool is primarily targeted for deployment in resource-limited countries and supports the Africa Society for Blood Transfusion (AfSBT) 3 step certification and accreditation process and recommended best practice.
