Log into SRTR Secure Site at https://securesrtr.transplant.hrsa.gov/ and go to Center Home & Reports. Download SRTR Report, Expected Survival Tables - Living Donor and SRTR Report, Expected Survival Tables - Deceased Donor. These files are in Excel (.xls) format. You will need to use the drop down box near the top to select Kidney and Liver to get their respective links. Thoracic transplants are not presently supported in RAPID.
These Excel spreadsheets are workbooks with multiple tabs. The first one should be informational, followed by Data, Beta, and Baseline Curves for 1-month, 12-month, and 36-month, should be about twenty worksheets or so.
We have received reports that the SRTR PSR may not load properly if the Excel spreadsheets are not unprotected. To ensure that the data load completely, you will need to open the Excel spreadsheet and unprotect all sheets in the workbook. For example, in Excel 2013, to unprotect the workbook after opening it, you would go to File and click on Unprotect for each sheet and then save the workbook.
