On Site Coordinator Support
Clinical Consulting Associates is comprised of Certified Procurement Transplant Coordinators who provide short- and long-term employee coverage for organ procurement organizations experiencing:
- staffing shortages
- coverage during personnel leave, annual company-wide meetings or periods of high donor volume
Certified Procurement Transplant Coordinators work for Clinical Consulting Associates as Independent Subcontractors. On a monthly basis, this elite group of “traveling coordinators” choose assignments varying from a few days to a couple weeks at OPOs throughout the U.S., providing 24/7 on-call coverage for organ donor and import organ offer activity. CVs are sent for review prior to acceptance on any assignment.
We have surgical recovery coordinators available to assist in the operating room set-up, as well as the preservation, packaging and distribution of organs recovered for transplantation.
Lastly, several members of our team have previous OPO clinical management experience. With the proper resources and specific training regarding your OPO’s protocols, we can provide assistance with Administrator On-Call responsibilities.
DonorNet Organ Offers
Experienced coordinators assigned to your organ transplant center will be on-call to respond to DonorNet organ offers. Smart phones, text pagers and email are used to provide redundancy for DonorNet notifications minimizing missed calls.
Using organ specific rule-out criteria developed by your transplant team, all organ offers will be screened. Patient specific or center wide refusal codes will be entered into DonorNet for all organs not meeting criteria. Organ offers ruled in will be summarized and succinctly reviewed with the clinician on-call at your center, only when your center is either primary or first back-up.
Our coordinators have the clinical expertise to realize when important donor information is missing and will call the onsite donor coordinator to obtain it prior to waking you with the organ offer. Moreover, we can request that your center’s clinical protocols for donor management be implemented at the time of acceptance.
Our goal is to become a seamless part of your team working closely with your clinicians, local OPO coordinators and transportation providers. We will customize services to meet your needs.
Triage and Organ Allocation Call
Experienced and certified organ procurement coordinators provide on-call assistance to OPOs from home to answer organ donor referral calls, enter data regarding the referral and coordinate a plan with the hospital staff. We can also assist onsite OPO coordinators with organ allocation communications.
OPO Call Center Staffing
Experienced organ donation coordinators are provided to work alongside your OPO’s Call Center Staff.
