The Anemia Prevention and Management Implementation Guide is the result of a joint collaboration between SABM and The Society for Hospital Medicine. It is estimated that one third of the world’s population suffers from anemia. In hospitalized patients, the presence of anemia is an independent risk factor for a host of unfavorable outcomes, yet it Is often ignored or overlooked. Early detection and treatment can reduce risk and improve the health status of patients. This guide provides a framework for hospital based anemia management quality improvement projects, resulting in better quality care at reduced cost.
