CW/NHSN Validation: AST

Facilities need to be aware that Allegheny Science & Technology (AST) is under contract with CMS to validate the accuracy of CROWNWeb and NHSN data.  AST has a data use agreement in place with CMS to request and receive patient records from dialysis facilities for this purpose.  The project is described in the PY2017 final rule, which can be found at  https://www.cms.gov/Medicare/Quality-Initiatives-Patient-Assessment-Instruments/ESRDQIP/05_LawsandRegs.html .
