The OmniLife Story
OmniLife builds modern secure mobile messaging software for transplant teams to review organ offers, coordinate their multi-discipline care teams, and save lives by maximizing organ utilization. Our team strives to set a new bar for enterprise software with modern, well-designed, real-time apps.

Connected Purpose
The connected purpose to the donation and transplant industry starts with the founders. Dalton Shaull, founder and CEO, received an experimental nerve transplant to regain function of his right arm which was paralyzed for over 8 months following a near-fatal motorcycle accident. Eric Pahl, founder and CTO, has 3 aunts waiting for life-saving liver transplants. Dalton's uncle, a heart transplant surgeon, initially brought their attention to the communication challenges and the current inefficiencies and lack of security.

Making a Difference
Since our incorporation in Feb 2016, have raised $1.5 million, grown our team, and delivered our first commercial-ready product, TXP Chat™ which is used by over 200 transplant clinicians and successfully facilitated over 200 life-saving transplants to date.
