Hahnemann University Hospital Selected for Second Phase of COIIN Pilot


Hahnemann University Hospital’s kidney transplant program has been accepted to the Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network (OPTN) Collaborative Innovation and Improvement Network (COIIN) pilot program with the United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS). A total of 37 transplant facilities in the U.S. have been selected to participate in the second pilot phase of COIIN.

COIIN is a three-year project funded by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) aimed at increasing the acceptance and utilization of moderate-to-high KDPI kidneys within a collaborative learning model. As part of the project, Hahnemann will participate in learning sessions, coaching site visits, clinical and quality improvement webinars, as well as share outcome, process, and relationship measures to drive improvement.

Training and coaching for pilot participants will begin in July 2017, and the data collection and collaborative learning will begin in October 2017.

Stephen R. Guy, MD, FACS, director of the Kidney Transplant Program; and Karthik Ranganna, MD, MBA, FASN, medical director of the Kidney Transplant Program, served as the institutional applicants for the pilot.
