ESRD Data Systems

Reduce costs of ESRD care by improving care.

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) established the End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) Quality Initiative Program (QIP) as part of its ongoing efforts to improve the quality of dialysis care provided to ESRD patients. This initiative supports quality improvement efforts among providers and makes available quality information that will enable patients to participate in making health care decisions.

Data for Quality Incentive Program (QIP) is reported in CROWNWeb, NHSN and ESRD CLAIMS.  Data from these systems is used to create reports for Quality Incentive Program - Performance Score Reports and Certificates, Dialysis Facility Reports in and Dialysis Facility Compare reports under Dialysis Facility Compare.  ICH CAHPS data is collected by third party vendor.
