The recent Executive Order for Advancing American Kidney Health has led to scrutiny in the way organ procurement organizations are currently held accountable for their performance. The HHS Press Office released a public statement in December to elaborate on the recent CMS proposed rule to “change the way organ procurement organizations are held accountable for their performance”. The statement alleged… “Many organ procurement organizations do wonderful work, but some aren’t performing nearly as well as they could. We’re going to stop looking the other way while lives are lost and hold OPOs accountable”.
There are 6,146 hospitals, 5,229 critical care units, more than 250 transplant programs, and well over 100,000 people desperate for us to succeed. The task of educating our healthcare population about their role and responsibility in our mission to save lives is overwhelming. This issue is compounded by internal challenges such as regulatory demands, staff turnover, and exhaustive training requirements. These circumstances create tremendous pressure and a burdensome distraction to the passion that inspires our work.

With more than a decade of experience in procurement, transplantation, education, and consulting our team at LGR understands the challenges of the community we serve.
