Important COVID-19 updates and latest data
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.

Effective June 30, 2020, new data elements are being captured within the graft function section of the Transplant Recipient Follow-up form (TRF).
Effective Thursday, June 18, 2020, VCA offers will first be made to compatible transplant candidates listed at VCA programs within a radius of 500 nautical miles of the donor. This replaces the previous distribution unit, which had been the OPTN region of the donor hospital.
The dashboard will provide overview of the status of the OPTN kidney paired donation data dashboard.
In an effort to improve the UNetSM design and user experience, United Network for Organ Sharing is making improvements to the look and feel of the DonorNet application related to branding, color schemes, and workflows within the system.
Pre-implementation system notice: VCA distribution to be based on fixed distance circle of 500 nautical miles
Effective June 18, vascular composite allograft offers will first be made to compatible transplant candidates listed at VCA programs within a radius of 500 nautical miles of the donor.
A new test type has been added and an existing test type has been updated in DonorNet® to capture information regarding donor COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2) antigen and antibody testing.
New data collection elements have been added to DonorNet® XML schema to capture information regarding donor COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2) testing.
Phase II of the offer filters pilot project will start later this year.
Developed in response to the pandemic, the tool provides OPOs and transplant programs the most current data available regarding organ recovery and transplant activity.
New data collection elements will be added to DonorNet to capture information regarding donor COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2) testing.
