How to Improve Quality and Value in Health Care, Fred LeMaistre, MD, Sarah Cannon
Transplantation leads to better health, increased activity and an improved quality of life for most recipients. Transplant success can be highly dependent upon transplant timing and referral along with coordination of care for optimal outcomes posttransplant. One barrier to transplant is the lack of coverage options for many American seniors, who are unable to afford or access transplant because of out-of-pocket costs and outdated Medicare reimbursement policies. This session will discuss the importance of appropriate, timely delivery of care and explain gaps in care along with the challenges and barriers that impede access to these life-saving procedures.
