Workflow-based web-enabled service-centric comprehensive IT solution for managing processes and services of an individual Blood Bank or Blood Bank attached to a Hospital.
SaaS solution is based on a multi-tenant architecture and made available over Cloud Infrastructure. With this model, a single version of the application, with a single configuration (hardware, network, operating system), is proposed to be used by multiple Blood Banks ("tenants") across various states.
Designed developed and offered by National Informatics Centre, Department of Electronics and Information Technology (DeitY), Govt. of India and is completely built on Open Source Software (OSS) tools and solutions.
Hosted AM (a SaaS variant) is considered to be a preferred software delivery model for accelerated adoption of ICTs by public hospitals in view of recent spread of broadband availability in many states as well as to reduce Cost of Ownership and ease of software maintenance and management.

Who & When
Who are Eligible to Donate Blood?
Good health of the donor must be fully ensured. The universally accepted criteria for donor selection are:
Age between 18 and 65 years
Haemoglobin - not less than 12.5g/dL
Pulse between 50 and 100/minute with no irregularities
Blood Pressure Systolic 100-180 mm Hg and Diastolic 50 - 100 mm Hg
Temperature Normal (oral temperature not exceeding 37.5 C)
Body weight not less than 45 kg.
A healthy person can donate blood in a regular interval of 3 months.
Policy on Voluntary Blood Donation
For providing good quality blood, the transfusion service must necessarily be supported by voluntary blood donors
Consequently, the recruitment of donors becomes one of the most important aspects of Blood Transfusion Services. Thus, healthy, responsive and motivated voluntary blood donors are the back-bone of any service. The professional donor system was banned in the country with effect from January 1, 1998 as per the Honourable Supreme Court Judgment. The Policy therefore, aims at catalyzing a situation of near total voluntary blood donation programme and phasing out even the replacement donor system.
Incentive & Its Role in Blood Donation
An incentive is defined as something that motivates a person to take action. In the case of blood donation, incentives should not influence people’s decision to donate blood and / or compromise the safety of the blood supply.
Incentives should not be conditional on a person actually donating blood. Incentives could be harmful not only to the recipient but also to the donor. Incentives will differ from country to country depending on each person’s hierarchy of needs e.g. cultural beliefs, personal values, economic factors etc.
If an incentive fulfils a person’s basic needs, this is viewed as payment. Incentives should not have a monetary value. Examples of acceptable incentives depending on the circumstances are:
Promotional campaign items e.g. T-shirts, meal vouchers, entertainment passes, etc.
Recognition items e.g. certificates, pins, medals, badges, pens, etc.
