Webinar: Optimizing the Success of Organ Transplants

Healthcare News | 2013-03-28


Globally, hundreds of thousands of patients per year remain on a transplant waiting list, hoping to receive an organ transplant that will either improve or save their lives. Sadly, far too many patients die while waiting for an organ transplant. When balancing the number of patients on transplant waiting lists with the number of available organs for transplant, it is critical that healthcare providers across the continuum of care leverage the diagnostic and management tools available to them to optimize the success rate for transplantation procedures.
