8-Hospital Organization is Largest Not-For-Profit in Mid-Atlantic Region
DENVER, April 21 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Global Med Technologies(R), Inc. ("Global Med" or the "Company") (OTC Bulletin Board: GLOB), an international healthcare information technology company, today announced that its Wyndgate Technologies(R) division has licensed its ElDorado Donor(TM) blood management system and ElDorado Donor Doc(TM) electronic donor history questionnaire to MedStar Health of Beltsville, Maryland. MedStar will also be contracting validation services from Global Med's PeopleMed subsidiary. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
Kirsten Alcorn, M.D., Medical Director for MedStar Health Blood Donor Services, commented, "MedStar Health was interested in a single donor system which would communicate between donor centers. We also wanted better information management between donors and manufacturing. ElDorado Donor blood management software provides this communication link and supports good manufacturing processes and quality control of our blood products. Safety in the blood bank is critical to our organization. The quality control afforded by an electronic system helps us to maintain high standards and our patient first philosophy."
ElDorado Donor blood management software was developed as part of an integrated modular system specifically designed for donor centers and hospitals to increase efficiency and help enhance blood safety during the manufacture of blood products for transfusion. ElDorado Donor combines system management, donor management tools, testing, manufacturing processes and distribution to allow MedStar a reliable information stream from donation to final distribution. ElDorado Donor Doc will unite an electronic pre-donation health history questionnaire with this complex blood management system to help evaluate donor suitability for donation prior to processing blood products.
Donor Doc's multi-lingual feature is of particular importance to MedStar Health. In addition to serving a large Spanish speaking population, MedStar Health has a sizable hearing-impaired donor group.
Thomas F. Marcinek, President and COO of Global Med Technologies, Inc., stated, "We are very pleased that MedStar Health has shown confidence in Global Med's ability to deliver advanced donor management systems to their hospitals. This confidence is confirmation that Global Med's products are highly respected in the industry."
Mr. Marcinek continued, "The ElDorado products are designed to support the integrated data processing requirements of small centers to large, complex organizations such as MedStar Health. Our team is poised to support MedStar with quality products and excellent customer service that will support their patient-first philosophy of combining care, compassion and clinical excellence with an emphasis on customer service."
