The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is targeting the release of the End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) Quality Reporting System (EQRS) in November.  In preparation for the transition of CROWNWeb to EQRS, CMS asks that facility users stop admitting patients as “Transient” in CROWNWeb effective September 30, 2020.  

Data Entry Steps:

  • Select “Transfer In” as the Admit Reason

  • Select “No” in the Transient Status field

  • Discharge the patient when he/she dialyzes at another facility
