Hospital Development Coordinators are responsible for tracking and providing OPO and hospital data to multiple stakeholders. In an effort to make this data easily accessible NATCO is providing an easy access link to the New SRTR OPO-specific reports (OSRs) that contain information about the deaths in the OPO's donor service area, the donor conversion rates, and metrics detailing which organs were successfully placed for transplant.
