MARGRITE will link national bone marrow donor information with the European databanks for patient information (EBMT) through the use of telematics, ensuring interoperability and interconnectivity, as recommended in the G7 Global Healthcare Applications project. It will thereby help increase the number of donors and consequently the number of potential beneficiaries. Work will be based on Internet with data encrypted during transmission, and will adhere to the EU regulations on data protection and confidentiality of patient records. It is designed for use by national bone marrow databases, hospital administrators, physicians specialising in bone marrow grafting, and cancer specialists, and will function on team, national and European levels. Additional benefits include the provision of continuously updated medical records, and new access to Europe-wide population data for improved analysis of results.
