Including High-titre (HT) status in Electronic Despatch Note (EDN)
Change in March 2024
The EDN system is used by most hospitals to import information about the blood components issued to them, directly into their Laboratory Information Management Systems (LIMS). Following several requests from hospitals to include the HT status in EDN, we hope to include this data from March 2024. The date will be confirmed.
We have informed LIMS providers to ensure this change does not affect any other functionality in LIMS. Please prepare for the additional data field activation or contact you LIMS providers if required.
The data structure and contents can be found in the JPAC Guidelines, Chapter 25, Table 25.4 Message protocol 000001: blood component dispatch information: dispatch line.
