Implementation of Blockchain-Based Blood Donation Framework

Abstract : Existing blood management systems in India function as Information Management systems that lack dynamic updates of blood usage and detailed blood trail information, starting from donation to consumption. There exists no communication platform for surplus blood in one region to be requested from another region where blood is scarce, leading to wastage of blood. Lack of transparency and proper blood quality checks have led to several cases of blood infected with diseases such as HIV being used for transfusion. This paper aims at mitigating these issues using a blockchain-based blood management system. The issue of tracking the blood trail is modelled as a supply-chain management issue. The proposed system, implemented in the Hyperledger Fabric framework, brings more transparency to the blood donation process by tracking the blood trail and also helps to curb unwarranted wastage of blood by providing a unified platform for the exchange of blood and its derivatives between blood banks. For ease of use, a web application is also built for accessing the system.
