Liver & Kidney Allocation: The Impact of Acuity Circles on Access, Utilization, and Transplant Center Practices

Thursday, August 25, 2022, at 3:00pm

In the past several years, efforts to address geographic disparities in access to transplantation through the implementation of acuity circles for liver and kidney allocation has changed the landscape of organ availability and distribution for transplant centers. This program will highlight the impact of the allocation changes on access to transplantation, waitlist and post-transplant outcomes, and organ utilization. Throughout the discussion, we will also highlight the challenges faced by transplant centers under the new allocation rules, and the adaptations that transplant centers have made to maximize efficiency and success in the current environment.
