Transplant & OPO
Specialist Direct solutions enable Organ Procurement Organizations (OPOs) and transplant centers to allocate organs faster and facilitate a reduction in organ discard by improving the accuracy and speed of diagnostic study interpretations. Areas of expertise include readings of echos, ECGs, liver and kidney biopsies, CTs, x-rays and more. We have a proven, consistent team of Board-Certified specialists and subspecialists with transplant case experience, which provides transplant surgeons with confidence in the results. But don’t take our word for it when you can hear from the transplant surgeons themselves.
Our team is accessible 24/7/365 for interpretations and consultations. The technology we deliver is second to none, which makes it easy for OPO personnel to access and share information. Finally, we’ve built our company upon principles that optimize the customer experience by delivering the highest levels of customer support. If you try our service you’ll notice the difference from day 1.
