How organs are distributed

How organs are distributed

Hastings Center Report 13(6): 26-27

A computerized system known as United Network Organ Sharing (UNOS) was established in 1977 to facilitate the procurement of kidneys, hearts, and livers for transplantation. Used primarily for kidney transplants, the publicly-funded UNOS computer system enables transplant centers across the country and in Canada to match available kidneys with potential recipients. Due to the shorter preservation time for hearts and livers, a service of the North American Transplant Coordinators Organization (NATCO) was developed in 1982 to complement the computer system. This 24-ALERT phone system provides a recording of the needs of heart and liver centers, categorized by priority codes indicating those patients who are critically ill.
