Webinar Overview:

In the Cellular Therapy field there is a growing need for productive software that permits a user to reference information, create documents and generate queries. Software’s ability to aggregate, link, harmonize and analyze data is essential when looking at improving transplant patient outcomes. There is also a growing need for software that meets the demands for regulatory compliance and demands of quality assurance within the Cellular Therapy field.

Software specifically designed for Cellular Therapy Facilities may be purchased directly from commercial software companies who specialize in medical informatics. Companies such as STEMSOFT and ComprehensiveBMT are examples of these. Facilities may also build their own unique databases using software provided by their Institution’s Microsoft Package. Examples of these include Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Sql Server and Microsoft Access.

There are a multitude of reasons to choose a specific type of software. Decision making often involves the software’s objectivity, functionality, diversity, user friendliness, presentation, overhead cost, etc.

Webinar learning objectives:

  1. Discuss what type of software different Cellular Therapy Facilities use.
  2. Discuss the pros and cons of the software choice.
