The Offer Filters tool will become available for lung transplant programs in UNetSM on Jan. 31. Offer Filters adds data-driven, multi-criteria filters to organ offers at a program level. This will enable lung transplant programs to filter offers they would not usually accept and helps organ procurement organizations (OPOs) find an accepting candidate more quickly.
On the implementation date, UNet Site Security Administrators will need to create a new group in Security Administration for individuals who need access to the Offer Filters Manager application.
OPOs also have a new workflow in DonorNet® when they make electronic offers on lung matches.
What you need to do
Transplant programs can use the Offer Filters Explorer in the Data Services Portal to view and modify recommended filters or create filters. Filters created in the explorer will not impact organ offers that come into your program.
Use the Offer Filters Manager in Secure EnterpriseSM to create filters, modify filters and turn filters on or off. The Offer Filters Manager has been pre-populated with your program’s model-recommended filters and the filters have been turned off by default.
Transplant programs’ UNet Site Security Administrator can grant access to the Offer Filters Manager and the Data Services Portal applications in UNet. If you are unsure of your UNet Security Administrator, call the UNet Help Desk at 1-800-978-4334 or email [email protected].
