UNOS Case StudyDOWNLOAD CASE STUDY
UNOS explored how to improve the quality, scope, and timeliness of their Organ Offer Report for transplant centers and organ procurement organizations. Members use these reports to review the eventual outcomes of organs offered to waitlist candidates and their doctors. By leveraging Hortonworks Connected Data Platforms and 100% open source tools, UNOS create a self-service reporting system for transplant centers and organ procurement organizations. These transplant centers were given automated, detailed, and visually rich reports on all organ offers they received and the outcome if it was transplanted. Moreover, the latency of producing this data was dramatically reduced from several weeks to days. UNOS is now working to reduce this time frame to only one day.
The data collected by UNOS is now retained within their data warehouse. UNOS’ data warehouse is providing doctors with a past and present look at patients and transplanted organs. This is giving them the information they need to make informed decisions in the best interest of their patients.
