The CIBMTR Continuous Process Improvement (CPI) program has been ongoing with US centers since 2010, to monitor and track the submission of required data by network transplant centers. In 2019, CIBMTR started to roll out CPI with non-US centers.

US Center Requirements:

On a trimester basis (January, May, and September), centers are reviewed and held accountable for meeting CPI standards for Allogeneic Related, Allogeneic Unrelated, Autologous, and Cellular Therapy (CT) infusions. To be compliant with CPI standards, there are three requirements:

  1. Having current IRB documents (renewal letters and consents) on file with NMDP
  2. Meeting the requirements of consecutive reporting of hematopoietic cell transplants (HCT) which includes centers submitting their complete list, registering CRIDs for any unregistered patients, resolving invalid CRIDs that do not exist in FormsNet3℠ (FN3), and resolving data discrepancies (i.e. mismatches) that were found between center-provided lists and FN3
  3. Form completion of at least 90% of the required forms for three product types at each of three time periods as well as CT forms (January 1 – April 30th, May 1 – August 31st, September 1 – December 31st) as applicable
    • Allogeneic Related form completion
      • All three time periods
    • Allogeneic Unrelated form completion
      • All three time periods
    • Autologous form completion
      • All three time periods
    • Cellular Therapy form completion
      • All three time periods

Please see Non-compliance section of the Data Management Guide for details about what happens if a center fails to meet the CPI standard.

Non-US Center Requirements:

On a trimester basis (December, April, and August), centers are reviewed and held accountable for meeting CPI standards for Hematopoietic Transplants (HCT) and Cellular Therapy (CT) infusions. To be compliant with CPI standards, there are three requirements:

  1. A signed Data Transmission Agreement (DTA) or updated Master Healthcare Data and Sample Submission Agreement (MHA)
  2. Meeting the requirements of consecutive reporting of HCT which includes centers centers submitting their complete list, registering CRIDs for any unregistered patients, resolving invalid CRIDs that do not exist in FormsNet3℠ (FN3), and resolving data discrepancies (i.e. mismatches) that were found between center-provided lists and FN3
  3. Form completion of at least 90% of the required forms for HCT and CT forms (December 1 – March 31, April 1 – July 31, August 1 – November 30). Please see the Recipient CPI Summary Report section for more details regarding what forms are included
    • HCT
      • All three time periods
    • CT
      • All three time periods

At this time for Non-US centers, there will be no consequences for centers that repeatedly fail to meet CPI as there is for US centers. Centers in Australia, New Zealand, and Brazil will be included in the CPI program first. Look for additional communication regarding other regional roll out of the CPI program in 2019/2020.
