Irish Blood Transfusion Services
RP Consulting carried out a review of the Irish Blood Transfusion Services’ supply and distribution processes, from how Blood was treated for use as a drug (to transform it from raw material to suitable for transfusion) to the full supply chain.
RP consulting mapped the’ as is’ process for supplying remote hospitals and recorded how much blood required destroying as it had gone beyond its expiry date. Robert Potter designed a new distribution process introducing Kan Ban to the system so that when a blood product in a remote location is nearing its expiry date it automatically issues an order for a replacement, while placing itself on a transfer to a busy hospital where it will be used. RP consulting then worked with Universal trace to assist in the implementation of the proof of concept of a system to manage this new process.
