Georgia has one of the largest populations of patients with sickle cell disease (SCD) in the nation. Optimal treatment for many patients includes blood transfusions. To prevent some SCD-related complications, such as stroke, patients can be treated with regularly scheduled transfusions. Using data from the Sickle Cell Data Collection Program, the REdHHoTT project* characterized the use of intermittent transfusions for SCD patients in emergency departments and inpatient hospitals5 in Georgia from 2007 to 2016.
