These resources will help your organization stay in compliance with OPTN policy:
The OPTN Evaluation Plan provides guidance to OPTN member transplant centers, OPOs and histocompatibility labs on how UNOS, as the OPTN contractor, assesses member compliance with OPTN policies and bylaws. We update it periodically to reflect the latest changes to policies and bylaws. Reviewing this information will help you stay up-to-date so you can revise your operational compliance procedures as needed.
The OPTN/CMS crosswalk guide briefly summarizes what surveyors will review on their site visits to transplant hospitals. It allows program administrators to review CMS and OPTN requirements and see where they overlap.
This toolkit of resources explains the OPTN performance review process for transplant centers. To earn 0.75 Category 1 CEPTCs, review all of the toolkit items and then complete the evaluation/assessment.
