Updates for electronic organ offer notifications provide additional efficiency and flexibility about how to offer organs
An update has been made for OPO electronic organ offer notification limits in DonorNet® to provide additional efficiency and flexibility to make informed decisions about how to offer organs using their own defined best practices. Revised heart and lung policies no longer use the donation service area (DSA) as the first unit of allocation, and therefore candidates at the top of the match runs may include potential recipients who are beyond the DSA border.
What you need to do
Directions were included in an e-mail sent April 6 to all OPOs and are posted in a system notice in Secure Enterprise.
DonorNet® online help documentation has been updated so that OPOs will have access to the information about how local limits are used for heart, heart/lung, lung and liver matches.
