Powers Principal Diane Millman Speaks at ATC 2019

Powers Principal Diane Millman spoke at the American Transplant Congress (ATC) last week in Boston, Massachusetts on behalf of the American Society of Transplant Surgeons (ASTS).

The American Transplant Congress is the joint annual meeting of the American Society of Transplant Surgeons (ASTS) and the American Society of Transplantation (AST). The meeting provides a forum to exchange new scientific and clinical information relevant to solid organ and tissue transplantation and to facilitate discussions of the socioeconomic, ethical, and regulatory issues relevant to organ and tissue transplantation.  

Diane’s speech focused on the challenges facing quality improvement in transplant care, including over-regulation, financial and regulatory barriers, and changing models of care. She also relayed the regulatory outlook for the future of transplant care, outlining one proposal to incentivize transplantation through a shared savings system.
