The Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network (OPTN) requires programs to submit complete, accurate and timely clinical information for 80% and laboratory data for 70% of living kidney donors (LKDs) at 6-, 12-, and 24-month follow-up. A program is noncompliant with policy for a time-point if any required clinical/laboratory element is missing or not collected ±60 days of the time-point. We retrospectively analyzed data collected in the NIH-funded Kidney Donor Outcomes Cohort (KDOC) study to ascertain whether policy requirements were met. Complete and timely clinical information was collected for 61% (6 months), 52% (12 months), and 48% (24 months) of LKDs; complete and timely laboratory data were collected for 44% (6 months), 45% (12 months), and 35% (24 months) of LKDs. Higher rates of data collection were observed when removing the ±60 day timing requirement. None of the six KDOC programs met policy requirements at any of the follow-up periods for clinical information, while two programs met requirements at both the 6- and 12-month follow-up periods for laboratory data. Despite substantial resources and efforts, we were unable to meet policy requirements and this experience is generally consistent with what others have reported and what has been reported by the OPTN.
