There are a large number of well-established biases in the health system that adversely affect the quality of care received by minority populations. While the increasing use of algorithms and machine learning (ML) in healthcare holds great promise, it also risks codifying and worsening these disparities. In this project, we intend to study a process that is particularly prone to racial and other inequities: the organ transplant allocation system. Specifically, we will focus on lung transplantation, aiming both to characterize disparities in the current system and suggest ML-based approaches to improve the fairness of outcomes and access.
