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.
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.
