Implementation date: 4/28/2020

At-a-glance statement

In response to the COVID pandemic, a temporary version of the Recovery and Usage Maps tool, or RUM, has been developed. Accessible in the Visual Analytics section of the UNetSM data services portal, the COVID-19 Weekly RUM Report provides OPOs and transplant programs the most current data available regarding organ recovery and transplant activity at OPOs and programs across the country for organs with specific characteristics.

What you need to do

Users are able to investigate weekly trends in recovery and transplantation of deceased donor organs by using the COVID-19 Weekly RUM Report’s interactive Tableau dashboard.

The tool is almost identical to the standard RUM with the following changes:

  • Its data is limited to that of deceased donors recovered and transplants performed in weekly periods beginning Jan. 5, 2020.
  • It is updated weekly rather than quarterly with data from Jan. 5, 2020 through the Saturday eight days prior to the update each Monday.
  • The COVID-19 RUM data may be reviewed in weekly increments rather than the most recent 12-month period.

Both the standard RUM and the COVID-19 RUM are available in the Visual Analytics section of the UNet data services portal.

Additional details

The UNOS Business Intelligence team developed this tool with input from members in a desire to support the donation and transplantation community during the COVID crisis.
