The OPTN Regional Review is analyzing the existing OPTN regional structure and provide recommendations to improve OPTN governance effectiveness. The regional review will be conducted by a vendor, with proven experience in systems and operations design that will be selected by an open process. During the summer 2020 public comment period, the OPTN solicited community input on the structure, processes, and effectiveness of the current regional structure.
A summary report of these results are now available on the regional review webpage. These results will be informational to the vendor that will be selected by the end of fall 2020.
The regional review will be ongoing through early 2022, and the community will have additional opportunities to provide input throughout the process. Regular updates on the study will be provided on the regional review webpage on both OPTN and UNOS, at regional and committee meetings, and as news items to announce milestones of the project.
