Tissue Banks & Reconstructive Transplant Programs Services

The CDRG Transplantation team provides tissue banks and tissue transplant programs from various medical subspecialties with several services aimed at helping heal and restore lives through tissue transplantation, including:

Study design and implementation.

We offer a team of biostatisticians and epidemiologists to help design and support high quality studies in the area of tissue donation and transplantation. Our team can assist you with designing and implementing studies involving primary data collection, or provide advanced epidemiologic analyses utilizing large national databases including Medicare data, private insurance databases, and prescription fill data. Our expertise in obtaining, processing, and analyzing administrative databases to glean advanced epidemiologic insights into various conditions and procedures can help tissue banks and transplant programs strategically target services to heal and restore lives through tissue transplant. In addition, our team is ready to help move the analyses toward publication in the peer-reviewed scientific literature; from medical editing to creation of compelling tables and figures, our team has a record of success in publishing.

Tissue bank and transplant program quality monitoring tools.

For your tissue bank or transplant program to best meet your goals for healing lives through tissue transplant, you must monitor your data and processes in as near real time as possible. Our team can assist in creating quality monitoring tools to allow informed decisions to drive the future success of the business. If you are a tissue bank, monitoring adherence to AATB and state and national standards through ongoing data analysis can help you achieve excellence. If you are a tissue transplant program, ongoing monitoring of patient outcomes can help target effective improvement strategies.

Policy analysis.

Our team of public health professionals has a history of working with donation and transplant organizations to understand, evaluate, and make recommendations regarding federal policy affecting transplantation in the United States. We can assist your organization in understanding, evaluating, and adhering to policy requirements. In addition, thorough policy analysis can help formulate policy recommendations.

Advanced analytics.

If your tissue bank or transplant program needs more advanced analytic support, let our team of expert biostatisticians and epidemiologists assist you. Avoid the pitfall of making bad decisions based on flawed data or flawed analytics. We will work with you to understand the data and the inferences you are attempting to draw from the data.
