Transplant Center at Jewish Hospital Selected for National Study

07/13/17 News Article

The Trager Transplant Center at Jewish Hospital, Louisville, part of KentuckyOne Health, was selected to participate in the second pilot phase of the Collaborative Innovation and Improvement Network (COIIN), a three-year project intended to increase transplantable kidney utilization and study new methods of quality monitoring.


The United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS) selected 37 kidney transplant centers nationwide, with Jewish Hospital being the only center chosen in Kentucky. Each pilot hospital will go through successive rapid improvement cycles, and all study participants will share lessons learned via an interactive virtual learning website. Another goal is to test potential improvements to the program performance review process.

During the study, the participating transplant centers will be exempt from the traditional review of patient and kidney graft survival performed by the Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network’s Membership and Professional Standards Committee. They will participate in an alternative quality improvement framework that will focus on organ offer and acceptance, waitlist management and care coordination.

Training and coaching for pilot participants will begin this month, and data collection and collaborative learning will begin in October 2017.
