EMDIS: European marrow donor information system

The main contribution of the European marrow donor information system (EMDIS) derives from the fact that medical treatment for a patient awaiting bone marrow transplantation (BMT) has been developed at a European level, when this had not been possible at the patient's own national level. Tools developed within EMDIS have allowed the building of a fully automated network and communication system between 12 European countries, based on open systems and established standards in software, hardware and communications. It has analysed the medical and technical framework in order to make best use of existing opportunities and to contribute to the creation of improved and equal medical, social, administrative and economic conditions for application in the community.
