Vanderbilt lawsuit delays a new policy for distributing livers to transplant patients

from WPLN-FM

The agency that oversees organ transplants is delaying a policy opposed by academic medical centers in the South and Midwest. Schools like Vanderbilt University have opposed changes meant to distribute livers more equitably. Vanderbilt joined Emory in Atlanta and a dozen other institutions in suing to block the redrawing of the organ distribution map. These institutions say a policy set to take effect April 30 would lead to 20 percent fewer liver transplants in their hospitals. more
