Effective Donor Management: Leverage DMGs to Achieve CMS Tier 1 Status

Tuesday, June 07, 2022, at 2:00pm

It’s more important than ever for OPOs to recover and transplant more organs to reduce deaths on the waitlist, while also striving to achieve CMS Tier 1 Status. With so many areas of focus, where does one begin? Examining Donor Management Goals (DMGs) and analyzing the data, is a crucial first step. Achieving established DMGs suggests that not only will more organs be recovered from that donor, but they will also be in a better physiologic state with improved function, leading to reduced incidence of Delayed Graft Function in kidney transplant recipients. Join us as Ginny McBride, RN, MPH and Paul Lange, MD share their work, first started by Dr. Darren Malinoski and colleagues, and breakdown this important research to use as one more tool to monitor your OPO performance.
