ESRD QIP-Vascular Access PY 2018

$79 / year

This dataset lists hemodialysis patients using an arteriovenous fistula and an intravenous catheter data used by End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) Quality Incentive Program (QIP) to assess dialysis facility performance. The ESRD QIP rewards outpatient dialysis or ESRD facilities treating patients with ESRD with incentive payments for the quality of care they give to people with Medicare. The program also reduces payments to ESRD facilities that don’t meet or exceed certain performance standards.

Complexity

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) administers the End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) Quality Incentive Program (QIP) to promote high-quality services in outpatient dialysis facilities treating patients with ESRD. As the first of its kind in Medicare, this program changes the way CMS pays for the treatment of patients with ESRD by linking a portion of payment directly to facilities’ performance on quality of care measures. These types of programs are known as “pay-for-performance” or “value-based purchasing” (VBP) programs.
The ESRD QIP will reduce payments to ESRD facilities that do not meet or exceed certain performance standards. The maximum payment reduction CMS can apply to any facility is two percent. This reduction will apply to all payments for services performed by the facility receiving the reduction during the applicable payment year (PY).
Payment reductions result when a facility’s overall score on applicable measures does not meet established standards. CMS publicly reports facility ESRD QIP scores; these scores are available online on Dialysis Facility Compare. In addition, each facility is required to display a Performance Score Certificate that lists its Total Performance Score, as well as its performance on each of the quality measures identified for that year.
The foundation, principles, and mechanisms guiding the ESRD QIP will remain the same over time, but the program’s specific quality measures, standards, weights, and formulas will change from year to year.
