The current study proposes a blockchain-based technology application for managing blood supply chain. Every peer-to-peer transaction in a blockchain that is recorded and stored is suggested to be shared with the entities participating in the transactions. The characteristics of any blockchain used for blood supply chain are that it is immutable, decentralised, consensus-driven and transparent. Being process centric, it would be helpful in managing an efficient blood supply chain while protecting the privacy of the blood donors. Further, the use of Radio frequency identification (RFID) technologies is recommended to prevent errors in blood transfusion as well as improve the quality and productivity of the blood supply chain.
