Data

The OPTN's secure transplant information database contains all national data on the candidate waiting list, organ donation and matching, and transplantation. This system is critical in helping organ transplant institutions match waiting candidates with donated organs. Institutions also rely on the database to manage time-sensitive, life-critical data of all candidates, before and after their transplants.

Measuring equity: Access to transplant dashboard

This dashboard displays data derived from an access to transplant score, or ATS. It monitors trends related to access to deceased donor transplants among active candidates on the waiting list in the U.S.
