Heart allocation is changing.

Thank you for providing input.

Watch videos: Heart recipents and members of the OPTN Heart and Transplant Coordinators Committees talk more about the changes coming to heart allocation.

Special online exercises were open through March 19, 2024 that gave everyone — patients, their caregivers and anyone connected to transplant — the chance to weigh in on the policy development process for heart.

Understand what’s changing

The community is building a new system for organ allocation called continuous distribution.​

The new system helps patients because it:

  • Is fairer and more flexible
  • Is predicted to increase equity
  • Lets patients be part of the policy development process sooner
