Northwest Texas Healthcare System said that since its implementation of the Northwest Texas Healthcare Blood Management Program last year, it saw a 20% decrease in the use of blood, which did not lead to any adverse events for patients. As part of the program, doctors at the system have learned to assess patients' signs and symptoms first, such as reduced blood pressure or increased heart rate, before deciding whether a patient needs a transfusion, instead of relying only on blood hemoglobin levels to inform such decisions.
