Organ transplantation is arguably one of the most highly monitored specialties in all the field of medicine. In the US each transplant centre is mandated to report extensively on patient demographics, donor characteristics, perioperative conditions, and overall recipient and graft outcomes. This chapter describes the environment of transplantation, efforts at quality improvement, and the regulatory constraints and mandatory data reporting that are required as part of an effort to maintain quality among transplant centres.
