Transforming policy into algorithms

Alex Tulchinsky, UNOS chief technology officer

A message from UNOS CTO Alex Tulchinsky

United Network for Organ Sharing works as the convener of the organ allocation and transplantation community, translating policy decisions made by transplant professionals into technology platforms that save lives. “Our job is to take the policies and convert them from English into computer algorithms,” said Chief Technology Officer Alex Tulchinsky. “By integrating policy development with the way IT works and by infusing technological practical approaches to how policy is being worded we are able to offer options to the committees to help them determine ways for an expeditious implementation.”

Hear from Tulchinsky about how UNOS’ Information Technology Department collaborates with the transplant community to swiftly create technological platforms that saves lives.
