Organ Donation and Recovery: What You Don’t Know May Surprise You

Although there are 155 million registered donors or nearly half of US adults, transplant waitlists remain long. While the US leads the world in deceased organ donation rates with steady growth and clinical innovations that have helped address the need, there is major room for improvement.

Dan Shellenbarger, Partner in Oliver Wyman’s Health and Life Sciences Practice, sat down with Alex Glazier, CEO of New England Donor Services, and Kevin O’Connor, CEO of LifeCenter Northwest on the Oliver Wyman Health Podcast to talk about ways in which their organizations are driving improvements in organ recovery and transplantation and why older donors are a key demographic of focus.
