A year in review
UNOS brings innovation, improvement and insights to strengthen a community passionately committed to being good stewards of the gifts entrusted to us. As we end 2019 and begin 2020, we are taking a look back on the stories from the past year that we feel best demonstrate our commitment to that effort. This multipart series provides a snapshot of the transplant community’s work in the past year to improve and transform the national transplant system.
DonorNet® enhancements have created transparency in communication and efficiency in the process by limiting organ offer acceptance to two per candidate, per organ type. These system features provide OPOs and transplant hospitals with a tool to manage and communicate organ offer acceptances in real time. Learn more about the project.
An eLearning module, Limit Organ Offer Acceptances by Organ Type, illustrates how OPOs use the 2018 DonorNet system enhancements to manage organ offer acceptances. It covers the requirements for limiting the number of organ offer acceptances per candidate, per organ type, and explains how OPOs must use the system to make the allocation process more efficient.
