The Organtree Program Saves Lives And Protects the Future for Donors’ Beneficiaries.
In the UK alone, at any given time there are over 6,000 people awaiting organ donations of which 1,300 will die whilst on the waiting list. The Organtree programme works to alleviate this situation by creating an incentive-based agreement platform between potential donors and recipients. It works like this:
- Individuals register on Organtree either as a future organ donors or recipients. Future donors also nominate someone as their beneficiary in the process.
- When an Organtree registered Donor is deceased, his / her organs become available for donation to Organtree recipients.
- Hospital staff access the Organtree system to identify the most suitable recipients.
- Once a match is found and the recipient chooses to accept the donated organ/s, the recipient compensates the Donor's beneficiaries by an agreed upon amount.
Everyone benefits from this – the Donors have their loved ones compensated financially when they pass away, recipients get quicker access to the life saving or life enhancing organs that they need and hospitals get an additional pool of donated organs to work with in order to save patients' lives.
