SRTRs New Liver Waiting List Calculator is now available!
On May 1, 2015, SRTR launched a tool to help liver candidates better understand outcomes for patients on the waiting list at liver programs in the United States. The beta version of the tool, developed at the request of OPTNs Liver and Intestinal Organ Transplantation committee, provides historical outcomes for candidates on the waiting list at a liver program of choice and provides comparisons to other programs in the local area, the OPTN region, and the entire nation. Explore the tool by clicking here or find the tool under the "Tools" heading at the top of the page.
