DonorNet® Improvement From Winter Meeting Event

Mar 20, 2019
The initial goal at the ASTS event was to add a “find candidate” feature on the DonorNet® match page to help transplant hospitals easily search through their potential recipients and manage organ offers.
 
The project took on a life of its own as discussions led to a different solution that provided more value: displaying additional candidate information in the main columns on the match page to aid in decision making. As a result, changes to the kidney and liver match screens will be effective March 20.
