The Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is looking for the amount of fluid removed during all dialysis treatments a patient received during the week that the labs were drawn for the Kt/V calculation. This valuable clinical information is entered in the Adequacy section of the clinical screen. After adding the Kt/V to the Adequacy section, users may select the “add” button which prompts the system to provide a pop-up screen for the entry of the Ultrafiltration information. Once the required information has been entered, a user may select the “done” button and be taken back to the Ultrafiltration screen. From that screen additional Ultrafiltration information from the Kt/V lab draw week can be added by following the above steps again when selecting the “add” button. If all information has been entered, users may continue entering additional clinical information in other fields. Please see the link below for more information.
