The following list of data fields have been identified as being critical to accurate outcome analyses. These fields are audited for each recipient selected for audit. The table below is a summary of many of the critical data points grouped by data field type. Critical fields are regularly reviewed and updated; therefore, the list below includes the critical fields for the most current revisions of the forms. Since the audit process reviews data reported over four years (including older form revisions), critical fields reviewed as part of the audit may differ from the summary below. For a complete list of current data collection forms (including form numbers and names) visit the CIBMTR website.
