Bone Marrow Coordinating Center: Standards & Measurements

Monitoring the performance of the C.W. Bill Young Cell Transplantation Program (Program) against specific standards is key to helping more patients have a successful bone marrow or umbilical cord blood transplant.

The Bone Marrow Coordinating Center, one component of the Program, recruits potential marrow donors and works with a network of organizations throughout the transplantation process.

Performance standards for the Bone Marrow Coordinating Center describe:

  • Number of unrelated marrow donors on the Program's registry. This includes reporting the numbers of potential marrow donors from these racial or ethnic heritages: American Indian or Alaska Native, Asian, Black or African-American, Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander, and Hispanic or Latino.
  • Search process accuracy, efficiency, and timeliness.
