The predictive analytics tool is now available for kidney offers for adult kidney candidates in DonorNet MobileSM. The free tool can be found on the candidate data page when evaluating an adult candidate for an offer, and will include several key components:
- The predicted time until next KDPI < 30 or KDPI < 50 offer for 50% and 90% of patients similar to the one being evaluated
- A candidate-specific mortality risk associated with waiting for the next offer, dependent on the variables selected
The information can be displayed in tabular and graphical form.
A brief summary of how to use the tool, as well as what the models account for when making their predictions can be found by clicking the “What is this predicting?” link when viewing in DonorNet Mobile.
The predictive analytics tool seeks to show the likely impacts for a candidate if their current offer is refused, based on relevant historical data for similar candidates.
The goal is to help decision makers make evidence-based decisions to benefit candidates when determining whether to accept or refuse an offer.
These predictions are intended to supplement, not replace, existing data and clinical judgment.
