Last November, UNOS research staff made data available to transplant professionals in a fresh new way by enabling them to access standard benchmark reports directly from UNetSM. A quarterly update of this information is now available, which includes a snapshot of the waiting list at the end of December 2016 and transplant data from Nov. 1, 2015 to Oct. 31, 2016.
Transplant administrators, or anyone from your center with UNet access, may access this information. To view the benchmark reports, simply logon to UNet and select Resources from the main navigation bar. Next, choose Data Services from the dropdown items. Then choose My Data Files in the left column.
Having current data delivered regularly will help you understand your patient population, listing practices, and transplant activity and compare it to others in your region and throughout the U.S. Over time, as policies and regulations change, we will update the contents of the report to make sure it provides the most useful information.
We provided this information to many of you previously but in the form of Excel documents, not visual charts that you can easily transfer to PowerPoint presentations or other shared reports. Using private funds, we are able to provide these reports to all transplant centers across the country at no charge, yet if you require advanced or custom reports, we can also create those for a small fee and have already done so for multiple centers.
Important: When we made the most recent quarterly update, we replaced the previous reports. However, if you need a particular archived report or want more information about a custom report, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or contact the research department through our existing data request process.
