The nation’s 58 organ procurement organizations (OPOs), who already work with hospitals on clinical aspects of transplantation, are invited to participate in HRSA’s National Hospital Organ Donation Campaign to increase the number of enrollments in state donor registries. The Campaign supports OPOs by providing fresh communications materials, facilitating the sharing of best practices, leveraging the influence of national associations and organizations related to hospitals and organ donation, and offering the additional incentive of national-level recognition to hospitals. The National Hospital Organ Donation Campaign’s Activity Scorecard is one piece of this campaign. A campaign leadership committee comprised of representatives from OPOs, Donate Life America (DLA) affiliates, and hospitals helped conceptualize the Activity Scorecard which is based on the committee’s experience of hospital receptivity to friendly competition and the opportunity to be recognized among their peers. The Activity Scorecard provides hospitals that wish to participate in the campaign with ideas for outreach activities. Each activity on the programmable PDF is assigned a particular number of points based on the activity’s potential for generating registrations. Hospitals can complete the Activity Scorecard and submit it by email or fax it to HRSA or to their OPO or DLA. This is a voluntary activity. Hospitals can participate in the campaign without using the Activity Scorecard. HRSA anticipates that most hospitals enrolled in the campaign (currently 802) will submit a completed Activity Scorecard once a year. Most importantly, the Activity Scorecard provides incentive for hospitals to conduct activities that will increase the number of registered donors throughout the nation. A list of hospitals that reach these levels will be shared with all campaign participants during monthly webinars, in monthly campaign e-newsletters from HRSA, and in communications pieces sent out by the campaign’s ten national partners, which include the American Hospital Association, the Association of Organ Procurement Organizations, and the American Society of Transplant Surgeons. In addition, OPOs, DLA affiliates, participating state hospital associations, HRSA, and the national partners can use the results to recognize hospital participation and successes. The ‘‘write-in’’ option that allows hospitals to list additional activities will help to identify best practices that can be shared with all hospital partners on monthly webinars. Likely Respondents: A hospital representative, most often the organ donation champion identified by the OPO, can download the form from organdonor.gov or receive it from their OPO or Donate Life America (DLA) affiliate. Burden Statement: Burden in this context means the time expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, disclose or provide the information requested. This includes the time needed to review instructions; to develop, acquire, install and utilize technology and systems for the purpose of collecting, validating and verifying information, processing and maintaining information, and disclosing and providing information; to train personnel and to be able to respond to a collection of information; to search data sources; to complete and review the collection of information; and to transmit or otherwise disclose the information.
