BMTPlus - Bone Marrow Transplant Management System

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.

Features

Clinical Management:

  • Enrolment : Enables capturing enrolment data, general medical evaluation, disease-specific summary, notes, socio-economic profile etc.
  • Selection: Tracks the process of identifying and screening potential donors.
  • Preparation: Enables and tracks the process of scheduling, conditioning and preparing patient for transplant.
  • Transplant: Daily clinical forms allow monitoring through pre and post-transplant phases including vital signs, lab reports, transfusions, medications, complications, nursing notes, as well as, consultant's notes. 

Outcome Analysis

A clinical form with tabular display of essential daily parameters (weight, maximal temperature, blood counts, liver and renal function tests) to be monitored during the critical phase of BMT enabled at-a-glance clinical assessment. The system also offers charts plotting height and weight z-scores based on 'The WHO Child Growth Standards', which is very relevant for both pre-transplant and follow up assessments. Enables consultants and other professionals, including multidisciplinary experts who may not be available locally, from various collaborating centers to share knowledge and provide general as well as patient-specific advice.

  • Follow-up height and weight according to standard growth curves is monitored.
  • Each time there is a change the concerned individuals are immediately notified by email.
  • Periodic emails are sent to the concerned individuals indicating the status of the patient on all parameters that need attention.
