BMTPlus is the first dedicated software platform for complete management of Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation. It is particularly designed for both start up and established transplant centers participating in network collaborations and willing to implement quality assurance programs according to FACT/JACIE standards.
BMTPlus enables comprehensive data recording, analyzing and reporting for all stages of BMT including enrolment, preparation and follow-up. While providing a in-house Eletronic Medical Record (EMR) system specifically designed for BMT patients, it facilitates data reporting to international transplant organizations such as the Center for International Blood and Marrow Transplant Research (CIBMTR) or the European Group for Blood and Marrow Transplantation (EBMT).
BMTPlus provides professional development tools, core competency assessments and monitoring as well as medical error management.
Drugs and consumable supplies inventory, equipment maintenance management as well as patient-specific and general BMT cost tracking are provided through a single interface.
BMTPlus has been developed in collaboration with the Cure2Children Foundation, a non-profit organization promoting global access to cure for children with cancer and blood disorders.
BMTPlus has been deployed across various centres supported by Cure2Children including:
- Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences, Islamabad-Pakistan
- South-East Asia Institute for Thalassemia, Jaipur-India
- Central Asiri Hospitals, Colombo-Sri Lanka
- Nawaloka Hospitals, Colombo-Sri Lanka
- Sankalp-People Tree Center for Paediatric Bone Marrow Transplantation, Bangalore-India
The outcome of these start-up centers established in the developing world has been shown to be comparable to those in the developed countries.
