Quality Incentive Program, Dialysis Facility Reports and Dialysis Facility Compare

ESRD Quality Incentive Program

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) administers the End Stage Renal Disease Quality Incentive Program (ESRD QIP) to promote high-quality services in renal dialysis facilities. The ESRD QIP links a portion of payment directly to facilities’ performance on quality of care measures.

Visit the ESRD QIP page on CMS.gov for more information.

Performance Score Reports and Certificates

Dialysis facility staff can access their Performance Score Reports (PSRs) and Performance Score Certificates (PSCs) and participate in the annual preview period via the ESRD Quality Reporting System (EQRS).

EQRS Login

In order to submit clarification questions and formal inquiries, facilities must have a Point of Contact established through the HARP/EQRS registration process. Facilities can also apply through HARP/EQRS for facility viewer access to the CMS ESRD QIP system. Facility viewer access allows you to download and review the PSR but does not allow you to submit clarification questions and formal inquiries.

Dialysis Facility Reports and Dialysis Facility Compare

Facilities can access their Dialysis Facility Reports (DFRs) and Quarterly Dialysis Facility Compare (QDFC) Preview Reports on DialysisData.org.

Dialysis facility staff access to DialysisData.org is updated annually by each facility’s local Master Account Holder (MAH). Facilities can update their MAH with the Network by completing the Facility Personnel Update Form. The Network sends updated passwords to MAHs annually.
