This video discusses SRTR's goals when serving the transplant community. It also touches on the Task 5 Initiative: a task under the current SRTR contract meant to identify metrics to assess national transplantation system performance and support informed decision-making by critical audiences.
The CUSUM charts – or cumulative sum charts – give transplant programs and organ procurement organizations the ability to monitor their performance on a monthly basis. This video answers questions like where to find your CUSUM charts, why SRTR produces them, what data is included, and how to use the charts to monitor your performance.
An introductory video to the Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients (SRTR). Learn more about how we serve the transplant community through our data driven approach, and about our mission to help make a difference in the field of organ donation and transplantation.
This webinar presented SRTR’s ongoing analysis of how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected the nation’s transplant system. Data was presented both at the system level and at the level of the transplant program and organ procurement organization.
An educational guide for Organ Procurement Organization (OPO) personnel, to understand SRTR's OPO organ yield calculator and how to most effectively use it.
How are risk adjustment models built and what do they mean for your program? How are covariates derived and how can you predict your program’s overall risk by reviewing the covariates? All this and more in this in-depth, informative session.
This webinar discusses helpful tools available to transplant programs on the SRTR public website. Tools include the Liver Waitlist Calculator, the Kidney Transplant Decision Tool, the Pretransplant Survival Worksheets, and the Posttransplant Expected Survival Worksheets.
A guide for transplant programs to understand how candidates’ status on the waitlist affects mortality rates.
A guide for transplant candidates to understand information provided on SRTR Program-specific Reports (PSRs).
A guide to understanding information provided on the SRTR public website including searching for a program, sorting through the results, comparing multiple programs, and understanding program summary information.
This webinar focuses on the SRTR metrics of waitlist outcomes (transplant rate and waitlist mortality rate), tools provided by the SRTR to help transplant programs take a deeper dive into these metrics, and future directions of reporting outcomes following placement on the waitlist.
Learn about SRTR metrics available for Organ Procurement Organizations (OPOs). SRTR discusses current metrics, new CUSUM charts to monitor donor yield, and future directions in OPO metrics.

Offer Acceptance: Metrics, Methodologies, and Insights
The Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients (SRTR) began publicly reporting new offer acceptance metrics for heart, kidney, liver, and lung programs in 2017. These metrics are designed to provide programs with data about their acceptance patterns within various subgroups of offers, and allows programs to benchmark against other programs nationally. In addition, SRTR began providing CUSUM charts for offer acceptance on SRTR's secure website. The goal of this webinar is to describe the new metrics, the methodologies used to derive the metrics, and to provide insights into interpreting and using the metrics.

SRTR Reporting for OPOs: Metrics, Risk Adjustment, and Available Tools
Under contract with the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), the Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients (SRTR) is charged with reporting on the performance of Organ Procurement Organizations (OPOs). This webinar covers the reports and tools SRTR makes available to the OPOs. Key metrics are reviewed, along with the statistical models used to adjust for donor characteristics. The Organ Yield Calculator is highlighted, as well as new reports of transplant program organ offer acceptance patterns.
New Website and Tiered Outcome Assessments
The Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients (SRTR) hosted an informational webinar about the new SRTR website and tiered outcome assessment systems. SRTR’s goals were to describe the motivation behind the changes, compare and contrast the 3-tier and 5-tier outcome assessment methodologies, and address common questions about the two systems. Information was provided as to how interested parties may submit feedback regarding the website and outcome assessment systems.
