CMS has announced that the http://www.DialysisReports.org website will no longer be used for ESRD QIP operations after January 15, 2015. In December 2014 the website will deliver the Payment Year (PY) 2015 reporting documents to facilities: the Final Performance Score Report (PSR), as well as the Performance Score Certificates (PSCs) in English and Spanish for posting in facilities, according to statutory requirement.
Following that delivery, CMS will make announcements about dissemination of reporting documents and operation of the Preview Period for the PY 2016 ESRD QIP.
The window for dialysis facilities to submit clarification questions and formal inquiries as part of the Payment Year (PY) 2015 Preview Period has closed, and CMS is finalizing scores and payment adjustments at this time. The DialysisReports.org website will no longer accept PY 2015 Preview Period data, questions, and inquiries from facilities. If you still have questions about the PY 2015 Preview Period, contact NHSN@cdc.gov, firstname.lastname@example.org, or ESRDQIP@cms.hhs.gov, as appropriate.
Technical specifications, measure analyses, and template documents previously provided on DialysisReports.org are now available on the CMS.gov website at http://www.cms.gov/Medicare/Quality-Initiatives-Patient-Assessment-Instruments/ESRDQIP/index.html.
