Improving Transplant Referral
Quality Improvement Activity (QIA)

Network Task Lead: Kou Kha-Moua

AIM: Move toward achieving and sustaining a minimum of 75% total transplant referral rate for eligible patients and at the same time, decrease the identified gender disparity

Goal: Participating facilities are tasked with a 10 percentage point improvement from the baseline total referral rate and a 1 percentage point decrease in the identified gender disparity rate. (Note: This is a multi-year rolling project, facilities will continue with the project if they do not meet the desire outcome of 75% total referral rate and decrease the disparity.)
