Ad Hoc Systems Performance Committee

The OPTN/UNOS Ad Hoc Committee on Systems Performance will focus on studying methods and tools for driving collaborative performance improvement in transplant systems. The Committee consists of three standing workgroups. Each will study existing metrics and effective practices and recommend new or updated ways to assess and improve performance. The workgroups will share recommendations and seek additional input from the donation and transplant community at a public meeting in March 2019.
