UNet is the electronic platform designed, built, continuously updated and maintained by UNOS over the course of 30 years for fulfilling requirements of the OPTN contract. UNet is a centralized computer network that links all 58 OPOs, 254 transplant hospitals and 150 histocompatibility labs. Thousands of transplant professionals access this secure web-based transplant platform each day to list patients for transplant, match patients with available donor organs and submit required OPTN data. UNOS developed UNet to enable members to submit, store, manage and display OPTN data using a secure, efficient, reliable and web accessible platform. The UNet platform includes:
With Waitlist, transplant hospitals are able to manage information about their patients in need of transplant. Waitlist uses a series of complex algorithms to calculate a patient’s medical urgency and predicted transplant benefit.
DonorNet provides OPOs the ability to add and modify donor data, execute match runs, make electronic organ offers and supplement the donor record with related medical information and source documents. Transplant hospitals view posted donor information and record organ acceptance and refusal decisions on all organ offers.
DonorNet Mobile provides OPOs the ability to perform second verification of donor ABOs and upload attachments to the donor record. Transplant centers have the ability to view and respond to their organ offers. The secure application can be accessed from any mobile device.
UNet Application Programming Interfaces (API) allow OPTN data about donors, candidates and recipients to be transmitted to or from the UNet system from a validated Electronic Health Record system (EHR) securely and seamlessly. Learn how UNet APIs can increase efficiency.
TIEDI enables OPTN members to access and complete donor, candidate, and recipient-specific electronic data-collection records.
TransNet provides OPOs the ability to create electronic labels for packaging and labeling all deceased donor organs for transplant or research. Transplant centers are able to perform organ check in and electronically match the organ to the recipient. Learn more about TransNet.

Pre-implementation notice: Liver and intestinal organ distribution based on acuity circles to be implemented Feb. 4, 2020
This will also include a conversion of each transplant hospital’s MMaT score to reflect transplants performed at hospitals within a radius of 250 miles.
Updated each week, the tool allows kidney transplant program staff the ability to quickly understand how many of their patients are active, inactive and the different reasons why.
The new and improved security administration application is now available in UNet.
Data definitions quarterly update available on Jan. 15, 2020.
This data confirmation tool is housed within Secure Enterprise℠ and allows transplant centers to confirm patient status on selected patients.
On Thursday, Jan. 9, several OPTN policy updates will be implemented to eliminate the use of DSAs from heart transplantation and replace them with a 250 nautical mile circle.
With the new application programming interfaces, users no longer need to log into UNet, navigate to TIEDI and save or upload files manually.
The addition of pancreas data was based on community feedback. UNOS researchers continue to develop new tools to assist members in their work to increase transplants.
We plan to make changes to the KPD system to improve the way it prioritizes candidate-donor matches, especially for hard-to-match pairs.
We are compiling data gathered during the pilot.
