TransNet℠

TransNetSM

The TransNetSM application automates the organ packaging and labeling process and ensures that donated organs are matched correctly and efficiently with the identified recipient. All OPOs are required to use this application when packaging and labeling deceased donor organs, including VCA organs. You can access the Data Services Portal under UNetSM Resources to find TransNetSM usage rates, both by OPO and nationwide. We’ll update this information every month.

To learn more about when and how to create a TransNet donor case and how to transfer a case, please check out our Learning Modular System: TransNet: Case Movement course. This course will also review the icons most commonly confused in TransNet.

“Using TransNetSM has reduced our lead time for recovery preparation, as staff are able to efficiently print the labels as they are needed. We found the system to be a tremendous improvement in our overall system of packaging and labeling.”

Additional details: 

When you create a case, you MUST select between a deceased or living donor.

  • a deceased donor case will function identically to prior versions.
  • a living donor case will pull donor information from TIEDI – Living donor feedback form.

Laterality validation for living donor cases only.

  • When a user selects Left Kidney, Right Kidney, Liver Split Left or Liver Split Right from the Procurement Plan screen, they will be required to enter a validators name and initials to continue.
  • This feature is important for living donor packaging and labeling because the OPO coordinators are not involved in the laterality determination during the initial work-up of the living donor.
  • No audit logs for this new feature.

Miscellaneous External Identification Label.

  • At the bottom of the Identification Labels screen, you will now see a new label.  This label is made up entirely of free text.

  • No new audit logs for this label.

Voices in Transplant

Read more about how UNOS members, staff and volunteers are improving technology to increase organ donation and transplantation nationwide.

“Our center began using TransNetSM to ensure that all organs from the outside were being checked in appropriately. Rob and his colleagues were very helpful in guiding me through all of my questions. It is easy to use, reports are easy to find and I have told several of my friends at other centers they should use it.”
