We would like to introduce SATA’s new multicenter database project aimed at quality improvement in liver transplant anesthesia. The goal of this program is to help transplant centers establish their own quality improvement database to better understand practice patterns within each transplant center. Additionally, the goal is to enable multi-center research projects based on prospectively collected data. This project is based on a similar program by transplant surgeons, the National Surgical Quality Improvement Program (NSQIP) Transplant which tracks surgical data and outcomes in liver and kidney transplants. Our team was able to interview executive members from NSQIP Transplant and from the SATA Liver Transplant Anesthesia Database Project. We were able to obtain quite a bit of intel about the newest QI project, how it was formed, and the future direction.
