Everyone who reads this story is engaged in a noble cause; but it’s also a business. With more demand than ever for research organs, specifically livers, the decisions made by OPOs and the partnerships they forge can impact outcomes and future expectations.
Carolina Donor Services (CDS) is ideally positioned to provide non-transplantable organs to one of the most prominent research hubs in the U.S. Early in 2019, IIAM partnered with leadership at the OPO to maximize the placement of more organs for medical research.
Based on suggestions from our partners, IIAM has continued to make system upgrades that improve our entire referral process — the latest of which enables any referring OPO to update referrals electronically.
