Anemia Management


Intra-operative Data Collection

September 21, 2013

For patient centered care.

Fight On.

learning objectives for sabm
Learning Objectives for SABM

Define meaningful Patient Blood Management (PBM) data essential to reporting patient outcomes

Establish the growing role of nursing practice in optimal PBM in a variety of settings

Identify strategies for educating and training healthcare professionals in PBM

Define & Communicate meaningful PBM data that is essential to quality reporting in a format that may correlate w patient outcomes

Establish the growing role of nursing practice in optimal PBM in a variety of settings

data tracking difficulties with pbm
Data Tracking Difficulties with PBM

Real Time Intra-op data not well collected from paper or even Electronic Medical Records (EMR) computed formats

What – No clear definition of what data is important

Who – No consistent designee(s)

How – No consistent mechanism

Where – No clear pathway into which to feed the data

surgical timeout
Surgical Timeout

Prior to commencement of operation

A confirming event for patient safety & global intra-op awareness

Multi-disciplinary coordinated effort in OR to Identify

Correct Patient, Surgeon, Anesthesia


Correct Site and Laterality



Documentation for Quality record keeping

“PBM Timeout”Why Not?--New Variation on Old Theme

Perform near completion of surgery

Allows for a multi-disciplinary coordinated effort in OR to identify input from Nursing/Anesthesia/Surgery in real time data format


Accurately capture important data elements in an operative EMR module – the Intra-op PBM Dashboard – written as a Power Form

Intra–operative PBM Dashboard, then uploads dataset into hospital EMR

EMR then query–able for all loaded PBM data

Allows accurate collection & tabulation of important clinical variables that historically never had a good capture mechanism and usually have to do chart reviews to identify

data tracking difficulties with pbm problems solved
Data Tracking Difficulties with PBMProblems Solved

No clear definition of what data is important

We define the important variables to track

No consistent time, no consistent designee(s)

Near Completion of Case

  • Circulating Nurse is Captain of both timeouts and responsible for accurate data entry
  • Functional efficiency of the Power Form and the Intra–op Dashboard
  • Do a walk through of the process

PBM Committee identifies important clinical variables and develops mock–up of the module

Intra-op module presented to OR Committee as well as IT and EMR Committee’s for acceptance of process and creation of the Power Form that integrates with EMR

Quality Committee approval for a process that must be monitored and reported

OR Charge Nurse is key for OR Committee to approve the role of nursing here and to develop the nursing competencies to direct the process and supply the data entry


Establish the Growing Role of Nursing Practice in Optimal PBM in a Variety of SettingsAnemia Management Program – Patient MarketingPACE – Outpatient Clinics – ICU’s – CRNA’s Physician Offices – Interventional Radiology

nursing as the driving force for cultural change in patient blood management

Nurses and NPs have most immediate patient contact (inpatient and outpatient)

In addition, Nurses and NP’s are the managers of the services provided at the major Patient–Entry Portals

Nursing Council for PBM–New Concept here as well

Nursing managers that oversee hospital service service lines to develop Power Form templates specific to their service line

Submission to the PBM Cmte for approval and IT for creation

Nurses define workflow for Site-Specific power form

anemia pbm public enemy 1
AnemiaPBM Public Enemy #1


Leads to Transfusion

Often correctible in a short period of time

Nevertheless, accompanies many patients to the OR

And now we can track that in our Dashboard

And it can become a fallout by service line or even by MD

And it can become a PI project


Insurance authorization for ESAs for anemia correction can be difficult, so cannot put pressure on service lines or physicians to correct anemia without some type of institutional effort to centralize and soften the problem

pbm business and operational impacts
PBM Business and Operational Impacts

Allays administrative concerns:

Reduced inpatient stay

Blood product utilization

Shifts cost of anemia therapeutics to reimbursable outpatient setting

Facilitates physician concerns:

“One-stop-shop” anemia Rx eliminates operational inefficiencies

Increase patient satisfaction:

Public increasingly aware of transfusion risks

Market program and transfusion alternatives directly to patients

outpatient marketing to patients
Outpatient Marketing to Patients


Pharmaceutical companies did market directly to patients – even if the medication required a prescription

Once we have directly sparked patient interest and involvement – that will often trump the resistance to old ways of practice which can then drive the agenda towards modern PBM

Patient then will mention to anesthesia in PACE clinic that they want conservation practice


Identify strategies for educating and training healthcare professionals in PBM

education as a tool for cultural change clinical non clinical staff as targets

Applicable to Personnel Types

Nurses, CRNAs, NPs, Nurse Managers



Staff – Unit Clerks, Pharmacy, Blood Bank, Pre-operative Assessment & Clinical Education (PACE)

Administration – Quality Admitting, ER, Professional Committee’s

Education as a Tool for Cultural change Clinical & Non-Clinical Staff as Targets
education as a tool for cultural change services as targets

Hospital based service lines where the action is:

Focus educational attention here.

Many--Nurse Managed

Admitting – ER – Outpatient Department – Transfer Center - PACE

OR – OR Scheduling – Blood Bank – AMP

ICU – Interventional Radiology

Pharmacy – Perfusion Services

Education as a Tool for Cultural Change Services as Targets
nursing education

Credentialing for TFS and PBM as a condition of employment

NPs belong in credentialing piece in same fashion as physicians

Nursing competencies as part of healthstream

Re-take test in circumstances where there is a fallout (TFS particularly)

Staff education falls in with nursing education

Nursing Education
competency module
Competency Module



Perfusion Services

specialty or service line credentialing or competency module

All nurses take a general nursing test

Nurses who work for particular hospital based svc would have to take test that included dashboard material for that service line

Make it a condition of employment or referral

Define Fallouts

Fallouts trigger administrative response from PBM program- retake the module for both the offending person as well as the service line manager

Specialty or Service Line Credentialing or Competency Module

Site Specific Data-Form designed by Nurse Mgrs+ QA + PBM Committee

Model for Data Form creation that generates EMR Powerforms

To IT for creation of Powerforms into EMR

Dashboard supported by EMR

Re-educational processes for individual or Service Line fallouts


Workflow Defined

Quality & Nurse Mgrs do Oversight + define fallouts
