Navigating DCD Cases: Recognizing Missed Opportunities

Presented on: Thursday, September 07, 2023

While we are incredibly proud of our millionth transplant milestone, we also acknowledge the devastating loss of 17 people every day who die waiting for a lifesaving organ transplant. Paired with the ongoing scrutiny of OPO performance, it is more important than ever to ensure we are maximizing every donation opportunity, including DCD. How do we use data to recognize underdeveloped areas of growth for both DBD and DCD donors, then subsequently take action to address and maximize them? How do we grow our DCD rate to the NASEM-recommended 45%, without affecting our DBD rates? How do we create positive cultures of change in our organizations?

Join us as we explore ways to unite Clinical, Business Intelligence, and Performance Improvement resources to expose issues and opportunities, before, during, and after referral and case processes. Learn from representatives of top-performing OPOs how they have analyzed data to inspire change and progress within their organizations, eliminated barriers, and built resilience to overcome setbacks and reach their lofty goals!

  • Leverage internal & external data sources to identify opportunity areas.
  • Implement strategies to increase DCD case mix without affecting DBD rates.
  • Identify and maximize donation potential in real-time and retrospectively.
  • Plan and deploy change initiatives to improve performance.
