Algorithm-based system to facilitate organ transplants

A medical assistance business venture has designed an algorithm-based network to smooth the process for organ transplants of donor exchanges. This is done with the aim to ease the procedure of finding out the correct organ donors in India.

“The algorithm is available and ready. The family of the patient has to give the details of the patient and the pairing will be carried out. We are dealing with liver patients first, as the requirement from all over the nation is in huge numbers,” claimed CEO and Founder of Credihealth, Ravi Virmani, to the media in an interview. The Gurugram-based firm claimed that it helps patients seeking for organ exchanging services to link with the correct hospital and doctor, and ease the swapping of relevant data related to the cost and procedure.

For organs’ transplants, locating a donor may not solve the problem always since doctors require to make sure the compatibility with the recipient of the donor. In a situation of incompatibility, the “exchange donor” system might assist. In India, there are 3 types of systems for living organ contribution.

In “living near-related donors” segment, only instant blood relations, for instance, siblings, parents, grandparents, children, and grandchildren, are typically established as donors. Wife/husband is also established as living donors in the segment of “living near-related donors” and is allowed to be donors, as per the National Tissue and Organ Transplant Organization.

 

The second segment is “living non-near relative donors”. This comprises family members apart from a near-relative of the patient or recipient. They can contribute only for the reason of attachment and affection towards the patient or for any other particular reason.

The third category constitutes “Swap donors”. In these situations, when the “living near-relative donor” is mismatched with the patient, provision for exchanging of donors among 2 such duos exists. When the donor of the 1st pair counterparts with the 2nd patient and donor of 2nd pair counterparts with the 1st recipient, the third category can be used.

To smooth the process of organ exchange services, Credihealth claimed that it might collect a list of legal recipient-donor pairs across hospitals.
