eRemedy's unique approach

Using proprietary software and hardware, the eRemedy systems automatically capture required audit data throughout the transplant process. In addition to the automated completion of ABO verification and surgical consent forms, this novel solution can capture both organ temperature and location data. The system has impressed OPOs and Academic Transplant teams with its customized audit and ABO verification process. The cloud-based system works to prevent both ABO mismatch and communication errors by automated data matching, streamlining the process to ensure desired outcomes, clean audits and efficient transplant management. The eRemedy solutions deliver value at minimal cost since no major equipment is required.

Leaders in the transplant industry have identified value with the eRemedy hardware and software suite for multiple stakeholders including: surgeons, hospitals, nurses, and OPOs.

After completion of a clinical trial at University of Southern California, the USC liver transplant team formally adopted and signed a contract for the eRemedy system. In addition, the University of California San Francisco transplant services have also contracted the application and service.
