Increasing the Supply of Organs for Georgians
Georgia, USA
United States of America
To increase the number of organs that are used for transplant in Georgia and the U.S. by using advanced analytics methods for quantifying the risk and comparing survival of receiving a transplant versus remaining on the wait list, and embed these methods into easy-to-use multilingual decision support tools to assist doctors and patients in their decision-making. Overall, this research will lead to a comprehensive plan for increasing organ transplants and saving lives in Georgia and across the country.
