Clinical and organizational recommendations based on best practices for increasing AV fistula use and improving hemodialysis patient outcomes.
The 18 regional ESRD Networks are established in legislation and contract with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services to improve the quality and safety of dialysis, maximize patient rehabilitation, encourage collaboration among and between providers toward common quality goals, and improve the reliability and the use of data in pursuit of quality improvement. The Networks are funded by a $0.50 per treatment fee deducted from the reimbursement to dialysis providers, and their deliverables are determined by a statement of work, which is updated in a new contract every 3 years.
This template helps your ESRD facility examine root causes and barriers, and outline a quality improvement plan.
