University of Iowa Blood and Marrow Transplant Database©

The University of Iowa Blood and Marrow Transplant Database© was created in December 2013 to enable data coordinators to fulfill internal requests for transplant data, as well as, meet federal mandatory reporting requirements with efficiency and accuracy. Lindsay Dozeman, the inventor, presented the database - Microsoft Access®: A Viable Blood and Marrow Transplant (BMT) Database Solution (doi:10.1016/j.bbmt.2014.11.416) at the Annual Tandem Meeting in February 2015 where it received overwhelming attention.
