EQRS, formerly known as CROWNWeb, is a web-based data-collection system mandated by CMS to enable dialysis facilities to meet portions of the Conditions for Coverage for ESRD Dialysis Facilities. EQRS helps the renal community transition from a legacy paper-based data-collection method to an electronic “always on” format. The system is designed to help improve patient care efforts by reducing the time it takes CMS to produce clinical performance results. EQRS functions as an important data source for ESRD QIP performance measures.

All Medicare-certified dialysis facilities, as well as Renal transplant and Veterans Administration facilities, can submit ESRD program administrative and clinical data to CMS in EQRS.
