SRTR to Host Webinar on Offer Acceptance
MINNEAPOLIS ― February 6, 2018 ― 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. Space is limited, pre-register for the event today:
Date/Time: Wednesday, March 14, 2018, 1 – 2 p.m. CST.
