Indian Kidney Exchange Program: A Game Theoretic Perspective

by   Arghya Bandyopadhyay, et al.

We propose a ways in which Kidney exchange can be feasibly, economically and efficiently implemented in Indian medical space, named as Indian Kidney Exchange Program(IKEP) along with Indian specific influences on compatibility and final outcomes. Kidney exchange is a boon for those suffering from renal kidney failure and do have a donor with an incompatible kidney (compatible kidney also encouraged for better matches). In such situations the patient, donor pair is matched to another patient, donor pair having the same problem and are compatible to each other. Hospitals put up their patient-donor data. Using the biological data, compatibility scores(or weights) are generated and preferences are formed accordingly. Indian influences on weights, modify the compatibility scores generated and hence, the preferences. The pairs are then allocated using game theoretic matching algorithms for markets without money.
