Technology Tools to Improve Organ Acceptance


Presented on October 15, 2019

Continuing education credits available until:
October 15, 2020


The recent changes in organ allocation to promote broad sharing have created new challenges in organ transplantation. Timely communication of key information is more challenging among an increasingly diverse number of transplant programs from diverse geographic locations. This complexity may contribute to prolonged cold ischemic times, late re-allocation, and, potentially, discard of transplantable organs if not addressed proactive. This webinar will feature three technologies designed to improve communication of key data - the revised DonorNet Mobile platform, mobile telepathology solutions for biopsy reading and review, and organ offer coordination and communication platforms for OPO and transplant centers. These tools will be useful for transplant surgeons, administrators, OPO personnel, and clinical coordinators to respond to allocation changes proactively.

Learning Objectives:

At the end of the webinar, participants should be able to:

  • Recognize how technology can increase organ acceptance and reduce organ discard.
  • Describe how DonorNet Mobile will facilitate organ evaluation and acceptance through improved data communication.
  • Explain the advantage of real time telepathology to evaluate kidney organ offers and reduce error in organ acceptance.
  • Identify the barriers to effective communication across multiple team members and discuss strategies to improve efficiency.
