New CPI Requirements will be phased in over four trimesters.

CIBMTR reviewed forms completion rates in April 2021 for all US centers against the new metrics and has established the following schedule for phasing in the new requirements. As a reminder, there are no changes to the IRB Approval requirement or CTA requirements.

Starting targets were selected based on > 80% of centers achieving this without any practice changes. Study Supplemental Forms and Queries represent a smaller percentage of the overall forms but have the most immediate impact on studies using CIBMTR data. To offset the increased effort of completing the Critical Forms on time, the target rate for all other forms will be dropped to 75% for this trimester only.

CIBMTR will monitor completion rates carefully to identify centers that may need additional support. If you are interested in discussing your center’s form completion strategy with CIBMTR, please contact CIBMTR Center Support.
