The Emory Transplant Center is committed to providing sustainable excellent clinical outcomes and delivering outstanding services and medical care to our patients. To fulfill our commitment, we recognize the importance of setting specific goals and selecting and prioritizing activities that are aligned with our mission and objectives, and are driven by data, benchmarks and best practices.
ETC Quality Initiative
Each program actively reviews specific program indicators and patient outcomes on a monthly basis. Additionally, in 2009 and 2010 the ETC Quality Council embarked on several Center-wide initiatives. Examples include:
- Increase the flu vaccination rate to 75 percent in the patient population who are more than three months post-transplant.
- Create a forum of transplant physicians and surgeons, representing each program, to brainstorm policies, measures and monitors for standardization of protocols across programs to improve long-term transplant recipient outcomes. One such protocol is the guideline for treatment of hypertension.
The goal for 2010 is to build on these initiatives as we continue to improve the long-term survival rates and quality of life of our transplant population.
