By March 1, 2019, OPOs and the labs they work with will need to have a process in place to ensure that the raw HLA data for deceased donors is uploaded in DonorNet in the source documentation section. Members that upload HLA data directly into UNetSM will need to ensure that they have an internal process for verifying the accuracy of HLA data outlined in the written agreement between the lab and the center they serve. Read policy notice.
If your lab or OPO is having trouble uploading HLA worksheets, you can find useful help documentation within DonorNet. Titled “Attaching Files to a Donor’s Record”, it’s the third topic under the Donors heading. You can also visit UNOS Connect (accessible from UNet under the Resources tab) to find an instructional video. This 5 minute video titled Image Posting (course number SYS129) is available in the Systems category of the course catalog.
Also related to this policy implementation, each lab must be sure to have an updated written agreement with every OPO they serve. This is specified in Bylaw language C.2 D. OPO Affiliation.
