Report lists median MELD at transplant score for each donor hospital

Published on: Thursday, June 23, 2022

Effective June 28, OPTN liver allocation policy will base the calculation of median MELD at transplant (MMaT) scores around the donor hospital instead of the transplant hospital. The policy will also update the sorting of candidates to promote greater patient access, particularly among pediatric candidates. The specific changes to policy are detailed in this policy notice.

A report listing the MMaT score for each donor hospital has been posted to the Liver and Intestine resource page of the OPTN website.

The scores will be revised approximately every six months based on data about liver transplants performed within a 150 nautical mile radius around each donor hospital.
