Commissioned Studies and Custom Analyses:

The NBDRC conducts customized research and provides data collection services for clients and members on a cost-plus-fixed-fee basis. In addition, existing databases can be analyzed to meet the specific needs of a customer.  For more information, please email us at [email protected].

The NBDRC works closely with each client to create a customized report, or series of reports, that meets their need for statistical information critical to accurate forecasting of blood services. For example, forecasts of future blood collections or component distribution patterns provide blood collection centers with valuable information for planning and budgeting purposes. These are produced using data submitted monthly by a nationally representative sample of 26 blood centers. Forecasts developed from this dense time-series of data have proven to be extremely accurate. Forecasts can also be generated from data for a targeted geographic region of the United States, according to a client’s specifications.

The changing age-structure of the U.S. population will have a profound effect on both the supply of and the demand for blood. The next 20 to 30 years will be marked by rapid growth in the population over age 65. The NBDRC assists blood centers and hospital transfusion services in planning for the future by providing customized population projections. These geographically-targeted analyses utilize data from the 2000 Census, historical census data, and data from NBDRC’s unique national transfusion database to project the demand for blood in the coming years. This sophisticated merger of population demographics and blood utilization trends provides a valuable resource for institutions struggling to meet the rapidly increasing demand for blood and cellular therapy products and services.
