Comp. ESRD Care Comments Requested

As part of its Innovation Initiative, CMS has solicited and reviewed proposals for Comprehensive ESRD Care (CEC), to test the effectiveness of new payment and service delivery models in providing Medicare beneficiaries with patient-centered, high-quality care.  For details on this program, see http://innovation.cms.gov/initiatives/comprehensive-ESRD-care/.  To evaluate CEC programs, a CMS contractor has developed draft Measures to monitor patient quality of life, chronic disease management, patient safety, preventive health, and care coordination.  CMS is asking stakeholders and the public to review and comment on these draft Measures before March 14, 2014.  For details on the Measures and commenting instructions, see https://www.impaqint.com/public-comment-comprehensive-esrd-care-cec-measure-set.
