Home dialysis quality improvement activity (QIA)

 
    Patients who dialyze at home have more freedom and flexibility to choose the timing and frequency of their treatments. As a result, they have improved quality of life, including lower blood pressure and fewer hospitalizations. With the steady rise of telehealth options, this provides additional resources for patients in rural areas to communicate with their providers regarding their home modality treatment. The network will support ESRD patients, providers, and facilities to achieve the goals set forth by CMS and promote a better quality of life for our patients.
 
 

2021-22 NATIONAL GOALS:
 
  • Achieve a 10% increase in the number of incident ESRD patients starting a home modality
  • Achieve a 2% increase in the number of prevalent ESRD patients moving to a home modality
  • Achieve a 2% increase in the number of rural ESRD patients using telemedicine to access a home modality
