Ideas in action
Data & tools
Despite a decade since a 2007 fatal plane crash involving a University of Michigan transplant team and pilots, there remain no federal standards regulating air and ground transportation of organ recovery personnel.
Staff and members collaborated to create emergency policy and IT changes to protect patients and keep the system nimble during the COVID-19 pandemic.
This change allows for the OPTN to be more representative and responsive to the community’s needs, which will in turn help patients.
Effective June 30, 2020, new data elements are being captured within the graft function section of the Transplant Recipient Follow-up form (TRF).
The kidney and liver living donor follow-up tools are available for all transplant programs in the visual analytics section of the UNet data services portal.
Why I volunteer
Transplant recipients and transplant professionals volunteer to give back, to learn, to develop organ transplant policy—all contributing to our national transplant system's strength and growth. Learn how you can get involved.
