António Gonçalves, our partner and CTO, has participated as a speaker in a TTS2020 session promoted by DTI Foundation, dedicated to technological developments in healthcare.
The session objective was to offer the transplant community an up-to-date vision on how new technologies may assist their daily work regarding the deceased organ donation and transplantation process.

Our contribution to the TTS2020: TransplantHUB®
In the management software topic, António focused on TransplantHUB® key features, namely
- The automation and seamless integration of the donation and transplantation processes from end-to-end in a unique platform, from donor detection to patient follow-up, including biovigilance and traceability;
- The use of artificial intelligence (AI) to maximize and optimize organ donation and matching;
- The inclusion of the European donation and transplantation model, as well as worldwide best practices.
Our presentation was followed by the Portuguese National Donation and Transplantation Coordinator, Margarida Ivo, that focused on the Portuguese Institute of Blood and Transplantation – IPST experience, which has been using our application since 2016, explaining the key benefits Portugal has obtained so far, and what we are planning to do, together, in the near future.
