The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) will host two special training calls to train the dialysis community on a new user system for the End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) Quality Incentive Program (QIP). The training calls will be held on July 7th and July 14th, 2015.
The initial release of this system, referred to as “ESRD QIP 1.0.0,” replaces the DialysisReports.org ESRD QIP interface that was discontinued earlier this year. ESRD QIP 1.0.0 features the following enhancements to the QIP system:
• Offers a portal for dialysis-facility staff to access public-reporting documents;
• Provides the ability to participate in the annual Preview Period; and
• Grants facility data access to the appropriate corporate and facility personnel, and ESRD Network. staff
Dialysis facilities will need the information provided in this training in order to review the data that CMS will use to evaluate performance as part of the Payment Year (PY) 2016 program.
