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.

New code will allow for better assessment of the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on transplant candidates and recipients.
The ROO is available to every transplant program and includes data on 180 days of organ offers to candidates at each transplant program.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, some transplant programs may want to refuse certain organ offers for reasons related to the candidate, the donor, or OPO or transplant hospital operational issues.
OPO and transplant hospital members who are using DonorNet will now be able to access OPTN policies easily from a link added under the “Related Links” header within DonorNet.
With the new API functionality, information systems within the transplant community can adapt to flexible user workflows that save time and reduce user burden.
Effective Feb. 27, UNet users who enter HLA typing manually into any UNet system are required to double enter HLA typing for verification of data entry.
Policy and programming changes associated with the “clarifications on reporting maintenance dialysis” proposal to be implemented on April 1
The living donor adverse event form within the patient safety portal in UNet will look different. The changes will not affect any historical forms that UNet users may have submitted in the past.
UNOS will begin a phased release of UNet Image Sharing in the spring. The first national donor imaging study sharing hub will subsequently be made available to ten OPOs each quarter.
The variance will improve timely access to donors for liver candidates listed as Status 1A, Status 1B, or with a MELD or PELD score of 37 or higher in Hawaii and Puerto Rico.
With the new API, users can now retrieve Waitlist registration information for their program without the need to log in to UNet, navigate to Waitlist and export the files manually.
