GRID Task Force

Location: Room TBA soon
The goal of the project is to create a system for assigning a globally unique identifier to potential haematopoietic progenitor cell registry donors. Given the global nature of the work done by haematopoietic stem cell donor registries, a system to uniquely identify potential donors on a global scale is needed to facilitate communication and prevent errors in identification of donors. A standard machine-readable format for a Global Registration Identifier for Donors (GRID) that can be used by electronic process control systems, as well as a standard format for the human-readable version, has been developed.The task members will meet in a pre-meeting to discuss the implementation of the global donor identification number for donors.Read more about the project on: https://share.wmda.info/x/VwCKC

EMDIS User and Technical Group

Location: Room TBA quickly
Initiated in 1992 as a European Union Project in the 3rd Framework Programme "Advanced Informatics in Medicine (AIM)", the European Marrow Donor Information System (EMDIS) has become the standard platform for computer-based registry communication today.The aim of EMDIS is to establish a single virtual international donor registry allowing search coordinators to get the same information and services on international donors as accurately, timely and easily as from their own national donors. The scope of operation covers all aspects of an unrelated donor search from the preliminary search to the donor workup. Technically, EMDIS defines an open specification of a protocol for the electronic communication among registries. Therefore, EMDIS is implemented as an asynchronous peer-to-peer network connecting distributed, heterogeneous databases. Membership of EMDIS is free of charge. The community provides documentation, status information, software tools, support and a project management platform.Agenda
