Project Guidelines

The ESRD Network of the South Atlantic is tasked by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to collaborate with dialysis providers in the entire Network service area to support the efforts of increasing the rates of patients dialyzing at home.

The intent of the Home Dialysis Quality Improvement Activity (QIA) is to promote referral to home dialysis modalities, identify and mitigate the barriers to timely referral, and determine the steps patients and providers can take to improve referral patterns.
