Blood Safety Information System (BSIS)


BSIS is an electronic information management system developed by Jembi Health Systems NPC, South Africa. The development of the system was part of a larger Centre for Disease Control (CDC)-funded Blood Safety Strengthening Programme. BSIS is designed as a fit-for-purpose BECS (Blood Establishment Computer System) for use specifically in resource-constrained blood services.
