EQRS Data Submission Quality Improvement Reports
Effective February 2021, following the deployment of the new EQRS system, distribution of the data submission quality improvement reports was resumed by CMS.
The Renal Healthcare HIE delivers the data quality improvement reports generated by CMS to the Renal Healthcare HIE submitting organizations. The reports contain information about specific data submission errors and status information for patients in EQRS.
Report user guides are available for each report providing information for how the report is to be used, improving the quality of data submissions or management of patient information in EQRS.
As more reports become available from CMS, Renal Healthcare HIE will notify customers, provide supporting report user guides and deliver the reports to Renal Healthcare HIE submitting organizations.
