ARLINGTON, VA – Planned Systems International, Inc. (PSI), a leading provider of information technology (IT) solutions and services for the federal government, is very pleased to announce the successful implementation and deployment of its Blood Donor Management System (BDMS) at all Blood Donor Centers (BDCs) worldwide.

The ongoing demand for blood donations is a critical item for the military readiness of troops worldwide, given that blood cannot be artificially reproduced and must be replenished due to a short shelf-life. Formerly, the Armed Services Blood Program used a separate system at each blood center, where data could not be shared. The improved global system, architected by PSI as the prime integrator, provides a centralized database to effectively manage and track the full spectrum of blood donor registration, screening, blood products and associated record keeping for military and civilian blood donors.

PSI and team member Mediware Information Systems, Inc. worked in close coordination and cooperation with the DHA Enterprise Blood Management System (EBMS) Program Office, the Armed Services Blood Program Office, Air Force, Army, Navy blood program offices, and each BDC, to successfully deploy this enterprise system to MHS sites worldwide.

PSI CEO Terry Lin said, “We are extremely proud of the accomplishments of PSI’s Blood Team and its role in supporting the Military Health System (MHS). Their efforts will have a long-term positive impact on improving the care our service members receive, and will ensure the continuity of vital healthcare services across the entire military community.”

The successful implementation of BDMS included training over 400 end users, completing system installation activities, and the migration of each site’s legacy data into the new system.

This achievement marks another significant milestone in PSI’s long history of supporting the MHS. This follows PSI’s Military Blood Program support team assisting in fulfilling the mission-critical objectives of the MHS  by providing and deploying a fully integrated system to manage blood transfusion products and the associated record keeping for military members and their dependents worldwide.
