... The report recommended that IOM should consider approaches to organ supply interventions that maximize the availability of organs without violating ethical norms regarding the rights or welfare of potential donors. This guidance was issued at a time when there was great interest in expanding donation after circulatory determination of death (DCDD)

... had varying policies -- official and unofficial -- regarding priority assignment and waiting list access for these patients, and the committee recommended the removal of waiting time as a determinant of waiting list priority. The committee found that the major factors producing geographic disparity in transplantation were the size of the population served by the OPO and the volume of patients transplanted, leading to their key recommendation that organ allocation for livers be based on broader sharing of organs within regions consisting of a minimum of 9 million people.

... OPPORTUNITIES FOR ORGAN DONOR INTERVENTION RESEARCH: SAVING LIVES BY IMPROVING THE QUALITY AND QUANTITY OF ORGANS FOR TRANSPLANTATION In 2017, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine published a report on organ donor intervention research as a potential way to improve the quality and increase the number of transplantable organs, including organs that might be otherwise discarded that focused on solid organ transplantation (NASEM, 2017)
