About Avera

Avera Health is the Midwest region’s most extensive and most active healthcare network. Patients at Avera McKennan Hospital & University Health Center receive excellent care of the highest clinical quality. Within the network are more than 300 care locations in 82 communities in five states, including hospitals, primary care clinics, specialty care clinics, long-term care facilities, retirement communities, home medical equipment outlets, and research centers.


The systems Avera had in place were time-consuming, repetitive, and resulted in several issues, especially with reagents. Avera found that their work processes could be executing at a higher level, and there was a need to control the inventory of reagents better, while also minimizing reagent waste. The issues to address were as follows:

  • Reduce waste and increase control over product inventory
  • Improve the Pheresis process for improved accuracy and reporting


Avera needed reliable software that provided accurate results and insights from the data. PERFEQTA provided them with the following solutions that have allowed them to improve upon the current challenges stated above.

  • Blood Product Management
  • Blood Product QC Statistical process control per FDA guidelines for platelet pheresis, red cell, plasma and all the derivatives of blood
  • Binomial, Hypergeometric and Scan Statistics distribution methods for SPC
  • Reagent QC
  • Lot qualification
  • Reagent management
  • Inventory
  • Track expiry date
  • Inventory location
  • Reagent usage

“PERFEQTA has removed multiple manual paper records and captured required documentation electronically for blood banks, to ensure compliance with FDA, AABB, CAP and ISO standards. PERFEQTA has been very responsive to our needs, enabling us to develop and customize Reagent and Blood QC apps quickly, ultimately supporting top-notch quality care for our patients.”

– Dawn Ver Hoeven, Laboratory Operations Manager
