A 5-year effort to reduce the number of unnecessary blood transfusions across Johns Hopkins Health System led to an annual cost savings of more than $2 million.
Blood transfusions are one of the top five overused procedures and is the most common procedure performed across U.S. hospitals, according to the Joint Commission, a nonprofit organization that accredits health care organizations and programs in the United States.
This activity is supported by an educational grant from Shire.
