On Tuesday, January 24, 2023, Dr. Jon Snyder, Director of Transplant Epidemiology at the Hennepin Healthcare Research Institute and Director of the Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients (SRTR), will present an annual Conversation Series program entitled, Knowing is Half the Battle: Using SRTR Data to Monitor Transplant Program Performance. Members of the donation and transplantation professional community are invited to register at no cost.
The Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients (SRTR) serves the national community of organ donation and transplantation professionals by providing advanced statistical and epidemiological analyses related to solid organ allocation and transplantation. This information is available to all programs and centers to utilize for their own organization’s success.
Based on strong community feedback, The Alliance now collaborates with SRTR to host this metrics-focused program annually for the community of practice. Each January, community partners can look forward to a presentation, followed by breakout sessions to explore the SRTR databases to use for their own organizations. This year, participants will be able to select their preferred breakout session topic, which will be facilitated by SRTR experts:
- Offer Acceptance Evaluations and CUSUMs – Nick Wood, PhD – Biostatistician, SRTR
- Pre-Transplant Mortality Metric and Expected Survival Workbooks – Grace Lyden, PhD – Biostatistician, SRTR
- Post-Transplant Graft Failure Metric and Expected Survival Workbooks and CUSUMs – Jon Miller, PhD – Biostatistician, SRTR
- Understanding Risk Adjustment Models and Where to Find Information About the Models – Jon Snyder, PhD – Director, SRTR
Collaborations are core to the mission of The Alliance, which unites the organ donation, transplantation and healthcare communities. Through many forums, The Alliance facilitates collective creativity to enable organizational agility and ongoing innovations.
The Chronic Disease Research Group, a division of the Hennepin Healthcare Research Institute (formerly known as the Minneapolis Medical Research Foundation), operates the Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients (SRTR) under contract from the Division of Transplantation, Healthcare Systems Bureau, Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). The SRTR contractor is responsible for providing statistical and other analytic support to the Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network (OPTN) for purposes including the formulation and evaluation of organ allocation and other OPTN policies. Additionally, SRTR provides analytic support to HHS in a variety of areas including policy formulation and evaluation, system performance metrics, economic analysis, and preparation of recurring and special reports to Congress.
