Canadian Organ Replacement Registry

The Canadian Organ Replacement Registry CORR is a health organisation was started by Canadian nephrologists and kidney transplant surgeons in 1985 in order to develop the care of patients with renal failure. In the early 1990s data on liver and heart transplantation were added to the registry. In 1995, CORR entered into an agreement with the Canadian Institute of Health Information to house the registry in CIHI. The board of directors of CORR receives advice from its scientific advisory committee. In recent years a research subcommittee was formed to promote research using data from the registry.
