01 Jan 2019-pp 133-143
TL;DR: An integrated Blood Donation Camp Management System is proposed which is a web based application with mobile compatibility designed to manage Blood Donation Campaign dynamically in an effective way with AADHAAR integration.
Abstract: Human blood is an inevitable component of human body for the sustaining life. Availability of safe blood on demand is a big medical concern in all developing countries including India. Supply of adequate blood could be achieved through timely blood donation camps, where voluntary donors can donate blood. In India, organizations of blood donation camp are formidably less than the requirements and are not organized in a systematic way. It implies the necessity to manage blood donation camp in a coordinated way to ensure the continuous supply of blood. This paper proposes an integrated Blood Donation Camp Management System which is a web based application with mobile compatibility designed to manage Blood Donation Campaign dynamically in an effective way with AADHAAR integration. In this research work an automated system is designed to identify different user entities involved along with other activities that are performed. The system architecture along with data model and database schema has been discussed. Historical data that will be collected through this system can be used for analytical processing to make future camping decision.

TL;DR: Based on the analysis, a Central Blood Donation Management System (CBDMS) is proposed with interconnected systems and can reduce the time required for blood donation by decreasing the information collected from the donors and improve the efficiency of the blood donation management system.
Abstract: Current healthcare systems rely on blood donation to save lives. Voluntary blood donation is the main source of blood supply in many countries. However, blood donors face barriers to donating such as time constraints and the long times required to complete registration and donor health questionnaires. Thus, this paper analyses the blood donor cycle and proposes information technology solutions. Based on the analysis, a Central Blood Donation Management System (CBDMS) is proposed with interconnected systems. The proposed system is among the first e-management systems for blood donation management in Saudi Arabia. Major components of CBDMS are explained to show the various functions of the system. The implementation of CBDMS can reduce the time required for blood donation by decreasing the information collected from the donors. The system can also improve the efficiency of the blood donation management system by linking various systems and importing information from different sites. It can also reduce blood donation errors and reduce the number of deferral blood donors.

TL;DR: In this paper, an effective method of contacting donors, that can be useful in an emergency is suggested, when a person requires blood, they request it through a website or mobile device; the request is then routed to the person who meets the matching blood type.
Abstract: Blood is one of the most vital and essential elements in human existence. When the population increases, so do the request for blood. People who need blood in an emergency are unable to provide it promptly. This paper suggests an effective method of contacting donors, that can be useful in an emergency. When a person requires blood, they request it through a website or mobile device; the request is then routed to the person who meets the matching blood type. the application is then sent an SMS to the donor to approve it, after accepting the request, the application will inform the requestor about it and he/she will get the donor phone number by using an MCU ESP8266 and a SIM800L. The privacy of the person must be protected in the current environment. The donor will be deleted from the reception of notification for the next three months after the blood donation is done. User name, password, and phone number are used to check registered accounts.

TL;DR: In this article , the authors provide an intelligent generic taxonomy to the literature on BDM with regard to relevant real-life problems and propose the best promotion activities of blood collection.
Abstract: Blood donation is a major area of interest within the field of health care. Moreover, Coronavirus pandemic, which has disrupted various aspects of life, Blood donation is still necessary for human life. The optimization of the management of blood donation will ensure sustainable and secure blood supply to save patients. The purpose of this article is threefold: i) to provide an intelligent generic taxonomy to the literature on BDM with regard to relevant real-life problems; ii) to emphasize the specific characteristics of donors and blood donation; iii) to propose the best promotion activities of blood collection. We conduct a systematic review of studies addressing differents problems in order to determine the efficacy of taxonomy and to get insights for potential directions and opportunities for future research about blood donation promotion and management.

TL;DR: Some research works on managing the healthcare system and facilitating their work using modern technology have been studied and analyzed and the blood banks are used as the sample of the services that the management system can provide.
Abstract: Recently, healthcare resources and services can be effectively provided to patients anytime and anywhere using healthcare management systems. Healthcare systems are developed through many mechanisms and applications that improve the management of healthcare-related resources by aggregating data with mechanisms such as the Internet of Things (IoT) that include sensors and mobile phones, as well as using unified databases for such resources so that they are arranged and managed in light of what is available and what is required and determine the required delivery to the requesting party as soon as possible. Healthcare and services are indicating many things related to health such as kidney donors, surgeries, advice from doctors, etc. Here in our study, we will use the blood banks as the sample of the services that the management system can provide. Today, the application of modern technologies such as cloud programming and real-time algorithms has helped solve many problems associated with traditional systems. Real-time algorithms are concerned with producing logically accurate results and answers in a timely manner without human intervention. Telehealth is an important purpose of the healthcare system where device interoperability and data normalization are challenging task that requires research attention. Several solutions have been proposed in the literature based on manual interpretation through explicit programming. However, programmatic implementation of the interpretation of data sender and receiver in a healthcare system for data transmission is counterproductive as modification is required for each new device added to the system. In this paper, some research works on managing the healthcare system and facilitating their work using modern technology have been studied and analyzed.

Abstract: With an ever increasing demand on blood supplies worldwide, there is an immense need to ensure a safe and sufficient supply of blood products. However, recruiting and retaining blood donors remain key challenges for blood agencies. In an attempt to address these problems, researchers have identified a range of socio-demographic, organizational, physiological, and psychological factors that influence people's willingness to donate blood. While past research has largely focused on donor recruitment, in particular, demographic variables associated with blood donation behavior, the issue of donor retention has become increasingly important. A growing number of studies have also highlighted the role of psychological factors in explaining, predicting, and promoting blood donation behavior. In line with recent trends in blood donation research, the present paper reviews the contributions of, and current directions in, psychological research on blood donation attitudes and behavior, with special emphasis on donor return and repeat blood donation behavior. Although there is overlap between factors that predict the initiation and the maintenance of blood donation behavior, it is suggested that changes in motivation and the development of self-identity as a blood donor are crucial for understanding the processes whereby first-time donors become repeat donors.

TL;DR: It was found that a large number of them donated because of the benefits they will obtain from the hospital, and an intensive blood donation campaign should be maintained to turn the positive attitude of saving life through blood donation to a regular practice.
Abstract: Summary. interviewed with questionnaires on their knowledge, attitudes, beliefs and motivations about blood donations. It was found that a large number of them (92.9%) donated because of the benefits they will obtain from the hospital. Such benefits include antenatal registration (67.1%) and saving the lives of relations (25.8%). Even though many of the donors are educated (98.9%), majority of whom have university degrees (36.1%) and have heard about blood donation before, 52.4% of them believe they can contact human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and/or hepatitis infection from blood donation. A good number (47.0%) are afraid of what they regard as side effects, such as weight loss (23.8%), sexual failure (5.9%), high blood pressure (5.2%), sudden death (3.3%), and convulsion (1.47%). About 41.0% prefers certificates as an incentive for donation, whereas 13.6% prefers money; less than 3% will like their names announced or published on the media and 2.58% will donate for nothing. It is recommended that an intensive blood donation campaign should be maintained. This will allow people to be well informed, turning the positive attitude of saving life through blood donation to a regular practice.
