SRTR Reporting for OPOs: Metrics, Risk Adjustment, and Available Tools
Under contract with the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), the Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients (SRTR) is charged with reporting on the performance of Organ Procurement Organizations (OPOs). This webinar covers the reports and tools SRTR makes available to the OPOs. Key metrics are reviewed, along with the statistical models used to adjust for donor characteristics. The Organ Yield Calculator is highlighted, as well as new reports of transplant program organ offer acceptance patterns.
The Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients (SRTR) hosted an informational webinar about the new SRTR website and tiered outcome assessment systems. SRTR’s goals were to describe the motivation behind the changes, compare and contrast the 3-tier and 5-tier outcome assessment methodologies, and address common questions about the two systems. Information was provided as to how interested parties may submit feedback regarding the website and outcome assessment systems.
