Technology for transplantation
UNOS developed the online database system, called UNet℠, to collect, store, analyze and publish all OPTN data that pertains to the patient waiting list, organ matching, and transplants performed.
This system contains data regarding every organ donation and transplant event occurring in the United States since October 1, 1987. Transplant professionals use it to register transplant candidates on the national waiting list, match them with donated organs, and enter vital medical data on candidates, donors and transplant recipients.
Year in review
Annual reports give us the opportunity to report on our recent achievements. This past year, UNOS was involved in hundreds of projects to bring together the transplant community to save lives through organ donation and transplantation.
