AABB Blood Survey

AABB regularly surveys its members for information about blood collection and utilization. The AABB survey results are shared with AABB membership, who use them for benchmarking and to better understand the current state of the field. Additionally, AABB uses these data to identify industry trends and to inform AABB’s decision making, planning and policy positions.

In response to member input, AABB has made improvements to the way that these data are collected and published. In an effort to reduce the reporting burden and speed the time to publication, beginning 2019, AABB will collect only these critical data elements. Facilities will be invited to participate through the new AABB accreditation portal. All AABB member facilities are encouraged to provide this important information as the engagement and support of AABB members are critical to ensuring a rich and expanding data repository that will move our collective community forward in a data driven manner.
