Versiti Selects HemaTerra Technologies

HemaTerra Technologies has been selected by Versiti, an affiliation of four blood centers, for the unique Features: of HemaConnect, HemaMobile and the VoIP dialer. HemaConnect, the industry’s preferred donor recruitment CRM, processed nearly 40 million products and 16 million donations last year. HemaConnect is the only integrated system to provide vital recruitment data for true supply chain and inventory management, when combined with HemaControl. Also unique is its robust VoIP dialer and smartphone-friendly applications, available with HemaMobile.

“We look forward to the collaboration and streamlined resource allocation this enterprise system will provide,” said Todd Abner, vice president of recruitment at Versiti. “HemaConnect fully supports our commitment to provide high-quality service at a reduced cost. It enables us to quickly adjust to meet the changing needs of our healthcare system partners and communities, and helps us to fulfill our mission of advancing patient care. The intelligence of this system is in the Features:, which from our account, puts it on an innovation level of its own.”

The enterprise Features: of HemaConnect enable Versiti affiliates to see the recruitment and supply chain needs of the entire network, or those of a specific center, region, division, event, blood type or product. The four Versiti affiliates are BloodCenter of Wisconsin, Heartland Blood Centers, Aurora, Ill., Indiana Blood Center and Michigan Blood. With HemaConnect, recruitment activities can easily increase and decrease, or move to different collection locations, based on hospital product demand. The unique Features: of HemaConnect helped solidify its preference among recruitment professionals, sending 50 million emails and using 11 million cloud call minutes in 2014.

Implementation of the enterprise CRM was completed last month with the BloodCenter of Wisconsin and will begin later this summer for Michigan Blood. Heartland Blood Centers and Indiana Blood Center have each used HemaConnect for more than two years.

“To have a group of respected industry leaders – visionaries – select HemaTerra as their partner for increased supply chain management is an exciting acknowledgement for us,” said Todd Collins, President & CEO of HemaTerra Technologies. “The economic trend propelling blood centers to form strategic alliances calls for an innovative system that enables alliance members to peer across their entire supply chain. HemaTerra’s system is being selected for that reason, as well as for the responsive service we provide.”
