Aiming to ease the process of finding the right organ donors in India, a medical assistance start-up has developed an algorithm-based system to facilitate donor exchanges for organ transplants.

The Gurugram-based company Credihealth assists patients looking for organ swapping services to connect with the right doctor and hospital, and facilitate the exchange of relevant information pertaining to the procedure and cost.

In India, there are three different systems for living organ donation. In "living near-related donors" category, only immediate blood relations are usually accepted as donors. The second category is that of "living non-near relative donors" while “Swap donors" constitute the third category. In the third case, where the living near-relative donor is incompatible with the recipient, provision for swapping of donors between two such pairs exists, when the donor of the first pair matches with the second recipient and donor of second pair matches with the first recipient.

To facilitate organ swap services, Credihealth would collate a list of legal donor-recipient pairs across hospitals that do not have matching blood groups and connect eligible pairs for transplants based on an algorithm.

These donor-recipient pairs will be directed to the hospital of their choice and the hospital will carry out the necessary due diligence for the transplant procedure.
