The data collection forms below show what data elements the OPTN currently collects. Transplant centers, histocompatibility laboratories, and organ procurement organizations enter data into the OPTN database in UNetSM.
Pre-transplant information is derived primarily from the waitlist and match runs. Transplant professionals enter some pre-transplant information about both candidates and recipients and post-transplant information about recipients on organ-specific OPTN data collection forms. Information used to reconcile donor and recipient data about the transplant is entered on the Donor Organ Disposition record.
