At-a-glance

To further enhance the experience with expedited placement of livers, new notifications will be sent to the original primary on-call contact (i.e. the local or import contact) notifying them when a liver match has been expedited.  This is meant to add transparency between the on-call contacts if the original on-call contact will not be the one receiving the expedited organ offer. This content will be supported on the email organ offer messaging and only generate for on-call contacts at programs that have either entered a provisional “yes” or have not yet responded to the organ offer prior to the initiation of expedited liver placement.
