We're going to be going live with a new Meditech version (6.1) and we'll be starting to use TAR with barcode scanning.  This prompted my facility to buy a digi-trax printer so we can reprint labels when we make components.  Can anyone help me with this?  Should I buy 4x4 labels with DIN removed or can I get by using just the 4x2 (to label the bottom two quadrants)?  Also, shouldn't I retain our blood supplier's facility information on there?  We don't aliquot and we don't pool...we just make components.

Thanks for your help.

We don't use Meditech but we do use the Digitrax printers at all of our BBs.  I personally prefer the 4 x 4 with cutout but have used the 4 x 4 without and both work just fine.

 

Have no experience with the 4 x 2. Do make sure you are in compliance with labeling as I've known sites to go live with a BB computer system and TJC or CAP or CLIA inspectors have asked to see these validations.

 

Good luck!

HI Becky,

 

I am having problems with apheresis FFP entering it into Meditech. We recently implemented ISBT.  How did you create the different products for the same ISBT code. I have Meditech 5.66 ,.I can scan the product into Meditech E0869 but if the product is E0869AO, BO my digitrax label does not print the correct divided unit . I tried building a new product but I am prompted that E0869 code is in use with the main unit.  I am would be interested how you have these apheresis products in your computer.

 

Thanks,

 

Eva

Hi Eva,

In your product dictionary, include all of the possible divided barcodes.  So instead of just E0869 add E0869VA0, E0869VB0, E0869VC0, and E0869VD0.  And those are zeros on the end, not capital O.  That should work for you.

      Hi everyone, new to the group.  Our Blood Bank is upgrading from ProVue to a Vision.  We are also upgrading from Meditech Magic 5.67 to Expanse.  I'm wondering if anyone has that set up?  I'm interested in how the interface is working, are you able to run everything you want and have the results cross over?  Any problems?  Information and advice appreciated!  Thanks!

      Hi, Epic recently published support for the ISBT Compound Barcode in their Blood Administration Module.  Is anyone hearing of any plans of blood suppliers moving to this anytime soon?  I found the attachment on the ICCBBA website, published in 2015.  Outside of that, I've not been able to find much info on it.
       
      Thanks!

      I am needing some help setting  up electronic crossmatch in Meditech. I have everything else in place but can not figure out how to prevent EXM in patients who have mixed field reactions. I am wanting to be able to perform the IS serologically as I understand this is needed per CAP and FDA regulations. Has anyone else experience this. We are currently on version 6.08. Thanks in advance!

      Trying to get the antigen typings on blood bag units to auto fill into Meditech from the barcode. Any ideas on how to do this?

      Hey! Currently when entering a unit of Red cells into Meditech, a Blood bank unit typing is automatically ordered. Any ideas how we can make this specific, so that it only orders it on ONeg and OPos units (instead of every unit)?
