Saving lives with an efficient stem cell donation process
Every year, over 900,000 people are diagnosed with blood cancer around the world. Stem cell transplants can help to save the lives of these patients by stimulating the production of new and healthy blood cells. However, 70% of the people who need stem cell transplants have no compatible family members and therefore need to find a perfect stem cell match from among the 36 million volunteer donors registered worldwide.
Matchis Foundation is the Dutch center for stem cell donors, providing a life line to cancer sufferers not only in the Netherlands but globally. When one of its registered donors is matched with a patient, it uses a Nintex K2 Five workflow to help it liaise with the donor, complete all of the necessary checks and assessments and facilitate the life-saving stem cell donation for the patient as soon as possible.
