Australia's online blood ordering and inventory management system

BloodNet is a web-based system that allows staff in health providers across Australia to order blood and blood products in a standardised way, quickly, easily and securely from the Australian Red Cross Blood Service (Blood Service).

BloodNet Blood Fridges Module

The BloodNet Fridges Module is a new function available in BloodNet from the 26th March 2015. This module allows users to record their on-site and off-site blood fridge maintenance activities, create incident notifications in the event of a non-compliance episode, and upload related documents, such as chart traces and any maintenance records. These records can be shared with any other users of the fridge, whether from their own organisation or externally by nominating sites within the BloodNet system with whom to share the information. Sites that are not currently using BloodNet for ordering and receipting purposes can still access the fridges module meaning that hospital sites that own and maintain a blood fridge can provide maintenance information to pathology providers who access the fridge.
