For OPO Professionals


I understand SRTR releases the data on my OPO to review, prior to releasing the reports; where do I find that?

You will find your OPO’s Donor Level Data Sheets posted on the SRTR secure site designated for your center. If you do not have access, email srtr@srtr.org and they will guide you to your secure site administrator, whom will add you upon request.

 

What is the process for the release of the OPO-specific reports (OSRs)? 

OSRs are released publicly in January and July of each year. The release cycle occurs in three primary phases:

  1. Data review period: SRTR uses data provided last day of September or March to create draft reports for programs to review during October 1-31 or April 1-30. Programs should look at their Data Integrity reports provided on the SRTR secure site to correct their OPTN data during this review cycle. (For information on how to get on to your program’s SRTR secure site, contact us at srtr@srtr.org.)
  2. Secure release: Following the data review period, SRTR uses OPTN data provided in November or May to create preview versions of the final Program Specific Reports that are then provided to programs in December or June. This is also when the Expected Survival Worksheets are provided on the SRTR secure site for centers to review their outcomes measures with the new risk adjustments applied. Programs also have the opportunity to provide comments to be appended to the public version of the report at that time.
  3. Public release: In January or July, programs have the opportunity to provide comments up to a month after the public release. SRTR posts any comments provided by the programs on our public website.

 

Why are the counts different for number of organs recovered for transplant in Table C1 and the number transplanted in Table C3 and/or the E tables?

In C1 tables and E tables, we are counting the actual transplants, so liver, pancreas, intestine segments are counted as are individual kidneys or lungs. (In C1 or E tables, we’re looking at the end result—how many people benefited.)

However, in the C3 tables, we are looking at the yield per donor for transplants. Liver is counted as 1, because a donor can only yield one liver, even if the liver was split. Like in table C1, kidneys and lungs are counted as 2, even if transplanted as En Bloc. In C3, heart valves and pancreas islet cells are not counted as recovered organs.

Here are a few other key things that may cause some difference between counts in the tables:

  1. Each liver or pancreas segment is counted separately (in C1, not C3)
  2. The cohort of C1 is based on recovery date not transplant date.
  3. C1 is a summary of the organ disposition as indicated on the deceased donor registration and does not use the reason codes.
  4. C1 counts recovered, E tables count transplanted. The numbers can also be different because of the time the transplant actually took place.

 

Where are archived OSRs?

You will find the archived OSRs and Donor Level Data sheets under “Archives” on the SRTR Secure site designated for your OPO. If you do not have access, email srtr@srtr.org and they will guide you to your secure site administrator, whom will add you upon request.

 

Where is the yield calculator?

You will find the current yield calculator on the SRTR Secure site designated for your OPO. If you do not have access, email srtr@srtr.org and they will guide you to your secure site administrator, whom will add you upon request.
