Healthcare providers preparing for dialysis pay-for-performance
from By Christina Thielst
Beginning Jan. 1, 2016, CMS will pay outpatient dialysis facilities for performance. The End-Stage Renal Disease Quality Incentive Program will promote high-quality services by linking a portion of payment directly to the dialysis facility's performance on quality-of-care measures. Interest in improving quality among this population comes as study results in the Journal of the American Society of Nephrology report that 21.7 percent of U.S. dialysis patients die every year.
