Brief Bio

Katie McKee serves as the hospital development and donor family aftercare manager as part of the strong leadership team at LifeSource. She leads a team of hospital liaisons and coordinators as they build relationships and pave the way for donation with our 280 hospital partners, and a team of donor family advocates, who care for families and help honor their loved ones’ legacy of generosity through donation. Her role is a hybrid of program management, strategic and operational leadership in LifeSource and hospital settings, and relationship building.

Katie joined the donation and transplantation community in the time of the National Learning Congresses, serving as administrator for the Mayo Clinic abdominal transplant programs. It was a tremendous opportunity to work with our OPO and donor hospital colleagues to advance donation and transplantation and she was amazed by the power of collaboration in this community. She and her colleagues were aligning practices across the three Mayo sites as so many were working to align national processes to save more lives through donation.

Prior to joining the community of donation and transplantation, Katie worked in hospital administration and quality at the Mayo Clinic.

The Alliance is an inspiring leadership model for collaboration and community advancement at their best. The connections the Alliance fosters and promotes strengthen the community of donation and transplantation. The tools and education the Alliance develops and broadly shares are extremely relevant to the each part of the community. My team and I reference them often and share them especially with hospital partners on a regular basis.

Knowing is Half the Battle: Using SRTR Data to Monitor Transplant Program Performance

Tuesday, January 25, 2022, at 2:00pm

The Alliance Conversation Series brings you cost-free, fast-paced collaborative opportunities that highlight successful donation and transplantation practices across the country. Through shared insight, multidisciplinary experts identify solutions to critical challenges affecting the community of practice and actively share them for open discussion and broader knowledge of effective practices.

Sessions are designed to be approximately 30-45 minutes in length and encourage real-time feedback and participation from viewers.

Overview: This conversation series will focus on providing information to transplant program quality professionals on the various performance metrics made available by the Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients, with particular focus on the new metrics that will be used by the Membership and Professional Standards Committee (MPSC) of the OPTN to monitor program performance. The participant will learn where these metrics are made available or will be made available and will get a high-level overview of how to find and interpret the risk adjustment models that are used to adjust transplant performance metrics for candidate, recipient, and donor characteristics.
