|Data Element Information|
|Use Case Description(s)|
|Use Case Description|| By capturing and exchanging an individual's organ donation wishes, we can expand and streamline organ donation workflows to help many more people find matches for potentially life-saving transplants. Donor registries need to do a better job of including and expanding more diverse donors so traditionally underserved populations in need of a transplant may have a better chance of being matched to a suitable donor.
|Estimated number of stakeholders capturing, accessing using or exchanging||Statistics to consider: https://www.organdonor.gov/learn/organ-donation-statistics#:~:text=As%20of%202019%2C%20165%20million,allows%20for%20deceased%20organ%20donation.
17 people die each day waiting for transplants.
