Description Summary of match run

This messages serves as an explicit confirmation that a match run at the remote hub has been performed for the patient given. It also reports the total number of potential donors and cord blood units of a registry in a very summarized way.

EMDIS Fields

Field description (WMDA dictionary field) EMDIS field code Required Field Type
Sending EMDIS registry (REG_SND) REG_SND Optional N4
Receiving EMDIS registry (REG_RCV) REG_RCV Optional N4
Patient identification (Patient Identification) P_ID Required A17
Date phenotype list was generated (Matchlist date) MATCH_DATE Required D8
Total number of matching AB typed stem cell donors (Number of matched A-B donors) TOTAL_AB Optional N5
Total number of matching ABDR typed stem cell donors (Number of matched A-B-DRB1 donors) TOTAL_DR Optional N5
Total number of matching cord blood units (CBU match list) TOTAL_CB Optional N5

The MATCH_SUM message is especially useful if the PHEN_LIST yields no entries i.e. is empty and therefore nothing is sent. The patient’s side then never knows whether it’s patient was accepted and matched or not. This message is sent whenever a PHEN_LIST is sent or if the PHEN_LIST is empty. It is also sent if PAT_STAT.REASON_CHNG is in [NML, NPH, RCM]. Since the donor lists reported for patients are always limited by P_MAX_DON_*, this information might be useful for increasing the number of donors on the list.

The TOTAL_* fields have to be reported according to the PAT_UPD.P_MAX_DON_* fields:

P_MAX_DON_AB > 0 -> report TOTAL_AB found
P_MAX_DON_AB = 0 -> report TOTAL_AB = “”
P_MAX_DON_DR > 0 -> report TOTAL_DR found
P_MAX_DON_DR = 0 -> report TOTAL_DR = “”
P_MAX_DON_CB > 0 -> report TOTAL_CB found
P_MAX_DON_CB = 0 -> report TOTAL_CB = “”

Total numbers have to be counted according to the patient’s matching preferences i.e. mismatches are counted.
