The main task of the Eurotransplant Registry is to collect transplant follow-up data.
The data collection and analysis is necessary both for enabling Eurotransplant to be accountable for its allocation activities and for increasing the scientific value of the organization. The Eurotransplant registry is therefore of central importance for the long-term success of Eurotransplant. Two of the key tasks of Eurotransplant as defined in the basic mandate are organ allocation and the development of allocation algorithms. In order to be able to perform these tasks data on the recipients (waiting list), organ donors, the allocation process, the transplantation and the outcome of the transplantation process have to be collected and analyzed.
