OPOs to be required to submit PDTR form electronically

June 1, 2017

Audience: OPO staff that report safety events using UNet’s Patient Safety Portal

At-a-glance: Currently, when reporting a disease transmission event using the Patient Safety Portal, you must email or fax a PDTR form or attach it to your report. The form itself is not changing, but on June 1, the way you submit it is. System updates beginning that day will allow OPOs to enter the PDTR online. This is still required within 24 hours of event notification.

Once the change is in place, OPOs must submit their PDTR online using the link provided in their event notification email. They must also provide the disease transmission event ID and the Donor ID of the donor involved in the event in order to access the online PDTR form. You can find both the transmission event ID and the donor ID in the event notification acknowledgement email. 

TIEDI® system enhancement: Adding patient ID to search patient history

April 12, 2017

Audience: Transplant center staff

At-a-glance

We enhanced the UNet TIEDI® system to make it easier for you to search for and identify patients from SRTR data reports.

Change

With this change, you can search Patient History yourself, using the new PX ID option search field, to find information about patients on reports for your hospital. The search is based on your existing permissions.

OPOs to be required to submit PDTR form electronically

May 30, 2017

Audience: OPO staff that report safety events using UNet’s Patient Safety Portal

At-a-glance: Currently, when reporting a disease transmission event using the Patient Safety Portal, you must email or fax a PDTR form or attach it to your report. The form itself is not changing, but in the near future, the way you submit it is. We will make system updates this spring that will allow OPOs to enter the PDTR online. This is still required within 24 hours of event notification.

Once the change is in place, OPOs must submit their PDTR online using the link provided in their event notification email. They must also provide the disease transmission event ID and the Donor ID of the donor involved in the event in order to access the online PDTR form. You can find both the transmission event ID and the donor ID in the event notification acknowledgement email. 

Waitlist enhancement allows you to edit SSN

January 18, 2017

Audience: Data coordinators for all organ programs

At-a-glance: Previously, if you needed to adjust the SSN for one of your transplant candidates, you had to make a data request or contact the UNOS Organ Center. A recent update to Waitlist allows you to now make that edit yourself. Once you enter the new SSN, you will be asked to re-enter the number in order for the system to confirm the accuracy of the information.
