Summary of "Five-tier utility: a start on the path to better reporting, in response to Schold and Buccini."

The Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients (SRTR) welcomes comments, suggestions and debate, and we appreciate the letter from Schold et al. SRTR is required to publicly report pretransplant and posttransplant outcomes in a way that patients and families can understand. We embarked on five-tier reporting of posttransplant outcomes in the belief that 1) it is better than the system it replaced, 2) it can likely be improved with better data collection, and 3) it should be accompanied by pretransplant measures of outcomes after listing and clearly inform candidates as to which metrics may be most important to their survival.

Notification or reporting by a physician or other health care provider of the occurrence of specified contagious diseases such as tuberculosis and HIV infections to designated public health agencies. The United States system of reporting notifiable diseases evolved from the Quarantine Act of 1878, which authorized the US Public Health Service to collect morbidity data on cholera, smallpox, and yellow fever; each state in the US has its own list of notifiable diseases and depends largely on reporting by the individual health care provider. (From Segen, Dictionary of Modern Medicine, 1992)

A cancer registry mandated under the National Cancer Act of 1971 to operate and maintain a population-based cancer reporting system, reporting periodically estimates of cancer incidence and mortality in the United States. The Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) Program is a continuing project of the National Cancer Institute of the National Institutes of Health. Among its goals, in addition to assembling and reporting cancer statistics, are the monitoring of annual cancer incident trends and the promoting of studies designed to identify factors amenable to cancer control interventions. (From National Cancer Institute, NIH Publication No. 91-3074, October 1990)

The failure by the observer to measure or identify a phenomenon accurately, which results in an error. Sources for this may be due to the observer's missing an abnormality, or to faulty technique resulting in incorrect test measurement, or to misinterpretation of the data. Two varieties are inter-observer variation (the amount observers vary from one another when reporting on the same material) and intra-observer variation (the amount one observer varies between observations when reporting more than once on the same material).

Works consisting of studies determining the effectiveness or utility of processes, personnel, and equipment.
