Updated 9-month monitoring report available for liver policy

Published on: Friday, January 15, 2021

A data report is available in the Liver and Intestine section of Resources on the OPTN website. The report contains key measures of the liver distribution system based on the new liver allocation policy for its first nine months of operation.

Given the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on candidate listing and transplantation, the embedded tables and charts denote activity before and after the World Health Organization’s declaration of the pandemic on March 11, 2020, where relevant. The report also notes effects of the pre-policy timeframe when the regional review board process was in effect, as well as the era soon after implementation of the national liver review board in May 2019.

Subsequent monitoring reports will be posted on an ongoing basis.
