OPTN Kidney Paired Donation Program

The Kidney Paired Donation (KPD) Program is part of the Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network (OPTN). The OPRTN is managed by the United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS) through a contract with the Health and Human Services. The OPTN registers and tracks everyone who chooses to participate in the program throughout the country. The Nebraska Medical Center is a member of the pilot program and works continuously to find transplant options for patients with an incompatible living donor.

SRTR Data

The Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients (SRTR) is an ever-expanding national database of transplantation statistics. Founded in 1987, the registry exists to support the ongoing evaluation of the scientific and clinical status of solid organ transplantation, including kidney, heart, liver, lung, intestine, and pancreas. Data in the registry are collected by the Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network (OPTN) from hospitals and organ procurement organizations (OPOs) across the country. The SRTR contains current and past information about the full continuum of transplant activity, from organ donation and waiting list candidates to transplant recipients and survival statistics. This information is used to help develop evidence-based policy, to support analysis of transplant programs and OPOs, and to encourage research on issues of importance to the transplant community.
