Organ transfer is a critical healthcare issue, with huge social, cultural, political and ethical ramifications. A timely organ transfer is life-saving, however, its success, in addition to medical technologies, relies on various other factors, such as timely transfer of the organ from one geographic location to the other, quickly overcoming bureaucratic hurdles required by law enforcement agencies, as well as performing a number of healthcare verification (or validation) checks in a very short span of time.
