The new Data Services application is easier to use and offers more self-service options. We made changes on September 26 and here’s a sample of what you can expect.
New custom visualizations
When you log in to UNet and land in the Data Services portal, you’ll automatically see a number of data charts that are specific to your OPO, transplant program, or lab. These views will help you understand at a glance some key metrics for your organization—things like the number of transplants you performed last month, or the additions and removals to your waiting list. And we’ll automatically update these charts every month.
Ease of use
You’ll be able to easily see if we’ve added a new tool or updated an existing one. And you will always know what we’ve updated within the last week. You’ll have the ability to filter data from frequently used reports and we’ve also made it easier for you to find specific documentation.
Create your own custom reports without a data request
Eighty percent of the data requests we receive involve sending OPOs and transplant centers their own data back to them. This currently requires you to submit a data request and wait a couple of weeks for custom programming and the results to be emailed to you. New functionality in the Data Services Portal allows you to now retrieve that data on your own, including transplants performed, waiting list registrations (current and historical), deceased donors recovered, and organ offers. In this section, you’ll find easy to follow instructions that will walk you through a couple options: you can start from scratch or select a report created by somebody else at your institution.. You can perform all of these on your own and get the data you need instantly.
