In brief: Yes

The number, characteristics, and results of living organ donation in the us is collected and analyzed by the united network for organ sharing (unos).
It is separate from deceased donor outcomes.

In brief: Yes

The best way to identify yourself as a future cadaver donor is on your driver's license.
You should also let your family know your wishes. If you are interested in becoming an altruistic living donor, you should contact a transplant center near you and they can help coordinate your wishes through one of a number of living donor registries.
