UNOS INNOVATION EVENT
            

Join us at the UNOS Innovation Event!

3:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Transplant and donation professionals, we know that you perform many roles as you go  about your busy day. If you are known as a “problem solver” or “efficiency expert”, we’d  like to hear from you. We are looking for transplant and donation professionals to uncover  problems, resolve difficulties and devise solutions.

UNOS began hosting innovation events in 2016, at the Association for Organ  Procurement Organizations (AOPO) and NATCO (The Organization for Transplant Professionals) annual meetings. Many thanks to transplant hospital and OPO community participants for taking part in these events and helping to make them so successful.


OPO STAFF

·    Have you ever been in the operating room during a living donation and thought “wouldn’t it be great if there was an easy way to package and label living donor organs?” OPO users with the latest version of TransNet (5.8.0) can do just that.

·    Do you ever hit a roadblock when sending out an electronic organ offer in DonorNet® due  to entering an end sequence number that is beyond the maximum? Would it be better if  you were informed of the maximum sequence number allowed on the same page that you are entering the information on? We agree and the fix went live in late November.


TRANSPLANT HOSPITAL STAFF

·    Did you create a really great custom report in WaitlistSM and want an easy way to share it  with your coworkers? Done. When creating a report, simply indicate that you would like it  to be a shareable report and fellow coworkers will be able to search for and run the report.

·    Do you need to find a donor on the Organ Offer Report in DonorNet® but cannot  remember the month the donation occurred? Does it normally take you hours of digging  for that needle in a haystack? There must be an easier way! There is, thanks to the newly-  added Donor ID search capability on the Organ Offer Report.

All of these are examples of inefficiencies that have been fixed as part of our Collaborative Innovation Events! Now we need your help to identify additional inefficiencies as well as partner with us to fix them at TMF.

You can sign up for this event when you go through the registration process.
