New insights into the alleged Kidney Donor Profile Index labeling effect on kidney utilization
from American Journal of Transplantation
The Kidney Donor Profile Index (KDPI) became a driving factor in deceased donor kidney allocation on Dec. 4, 2014, with the implementation of the kidney allocation system (KAS). On April 20, 2016, the annual recalibration of the Kidney Donor Risk Index into KDPI was incorrectly programmed in DonorNet, resulting in erroneously high KDPI values, by between 1 and 21 percentage points (e.g. actual KDPI of 70 percent was displayed as 86 percent).
