Once the individual assessments and tests performed during the evaluation are complete, a patient's information is presented to the multidisciplinary transplant committee. The decision to accept a candidate is made by consensus of the committee based on the results of testing and opinions provided by team members. Possible outcomes include listing for transplantation; recommendation for further testing or monitoring of patient compliance; or the determination that an individual is not an appropriate transplant candidate.
Within 10 business days, patients will receive a letter detailing the decision of the committee including any recommendations and required follow up.
