Update on changes to the imminent and eligible death data definitions

The Board of Directors approved changes to the Imminent and Eligible Death Data Definitions during its June 2013 meeting and set an effective date of Dec. 1, 2013.  The OPO Committee has subsequently agreed to submit a resolution to the Board of Directors in November requesting the effective date be delayed until Jan. 1, 2015. 

This will allow time for the OPTN and CMS to work together to align the definitions so OPOs will not be required to report two different sets of definitions.  Check Transplant Pro for additional information after the November 11-12, 2013 Board of Directors meeting.
