Aim: To search feasibility and reliability of Telemedicine Systems (TS) in the Coordination Process (CP) of Organ Transplantation (OT). Material & Methods; Forty participants (n=40) were divided in two groups, the specialists and the non specialists and comparatively simulated the telephone/fax and the TS based CP of a renal transplant scenario. Results: There was no statistically significant difference between the two groups regarding feasibility and reliability of TS in CP. Specialists found TS significantly more reliable in the fulfillment of all medicolegal requirements of OT (p<.001). Conclusion: Coordinators found TS in the CP of OT feasible and reliable.
