Since 2002, we have been working to help the Donor Action Foundation assist hundreds of hospitals all around the world optimise their transplant programmes. We have developed an advanced web application for Donor Action (based on open standards and Oracle 9i) which is used to collect and analyse the necessary data. The application, translated into 5 languages and managed by Artman Technologies, is being used daily by healthcare professionals from all participating countries.
participation in the EURODONOR
Artman’s successes have resulted in our participation in the Eurodonor (European Donor and Organ Registry) project, funded by the European Commission. The project aims to create an information exchange for organ donation professionals, as well as a source of official, up-to-date information for the general public as well as the healthcare community. Eleven countries participate in Eurodonor and Artman Technologies participates as a technology partner. The project has successfully completed its implementation phase and a more ambitious follow-up project targeting tissue donations is presently under consideration.
RCAISS red cell antibody identification system
We have developed the RCAISS red cell antibody identification system which was presented at the 23rd Congress of the International Society of Blood Transfusion in Amsterdam and installed in national laboratories in Cape Town, Prague, Budapest, Ljubljana and Bratislava.
Artman Technologies Ltd. was established in 1991. We develop healthcare information systems in close co-operation with experts in the areas of healthcare, economy and law. We have completed over 500 implementations so far. We also supply computer networking systems to private healthcare organisations.
In 1998/99, Artman Technologies developed a unique computerised system for processing organ transplants in the Great Britain, Scotland and Ireland. The system is implemented in UK Transplant and oversees the entire path of the organ from the donor to the recipient in the whole country, with connections to other transplant centres in the EU. The application is built on internet technologies and the Oracle database server. Transplant units are permanently connected to the centre via the NTN network.
This unique application is the work of Artman Technologies’ programmers and is intended to serve as the core of other transplant centre systems across the world. Artman Technologies enjoys exclusive distribution rights for this product outside of UK Transplant’s territory and it is available from us under the eTransplantTM brand.
