Resources for tracking geographic disparities in organ transplants

When it comes to organ transplants, where people live has a lot to do with when they receive care.

I explored geographic disparities in access to kidney and liver transplants in May in the first part of an ongoing series, “Living On: Improving The Odds of Organ Transplants,” supported by an AHCJ Fellowship on Health Care Performance.

As an interactive map with the series shows, the median wait time for a kidney transplant is more than six years in much of Texas and Pennsylvania but less than 18 months in Mississippi and Nevada.
