    Information Collection Request Title: Data System for Organ 
Procurement and Transplantation Network
    OMB No.: 0915-0157--Revision
    Abstract: Section 372 of the Public Health Service (PHS) Act 
requires that the Secretary, by contract, provide for the establishment 
and operation of an Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network 
(OPTN). This is a request for revisions to current OPTN data collection 
forms associated with donor organ procurement and an individual's 
clinical characteristics at the time of registration, transplant, and 
follow-up after the transplant. Data for the OPTN data system are 
collected from transplant hospitals, organ procurement organizations, 
and tissue-typing laboratories. The information is used to indicate the 
disease severity of transplant candidates, to monitor compliance of 
member organizations with OPTN rules and requirements, and to report 
periodically on the clinical and scientific status of organ donation 
and transplantation in this country. Data are used to develop 
transplant, donation, and allocation policies, to determine whether 
institutional members are complying with policy, to determine member-
specific performance, to ensure patient safety and to fulfill the 
requirements of the OPTN Final Rule. The practical utility of the data 
collection is further enhanced by requirements that the OPTN data must 
be made available, consistent with applicable laws, for use by OPTN 
members, the Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients, the 
Department of Health and Human Services, and members of the public for 
evaluation, research, patient information, and other important 
purposes.
    Likely Respondents: Transplant programs, organ procurement 
organizations, histocompatibility laboratories, medical and scientific 
organizations, and public organizations.
    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; 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; train personnel to respond to a request for 
collection of information; search data sources; complete and review the 
collection of information; and to transmit or otherwise disclose the 
information. The total annual burden hours estimated for this 
Information Collection Request are summarized in the table below.
