The objective of the EQRS system is to stimulate and support significant improvement in the quality of dialysis care.
EQRS serves as a collection system for dialysis facility, patient demographics, and clinical data, calculates Medicare coverage periods, and measures and scores the quality of care dialysis facilities provide.
Through the implementation of this system, CMS aims to refine and standardize dialysis care measures, ESRD data definitions, and data transmission to support the needs of Medicare’s ESRD program; empower patients and consumers by providing access to facility service and quality information; provide quality improvement support to dialysis providers; assure compliance with conditions of coverage; and build strategic partnerships with patients, providers, professionals, and other stakeholders.
