A Monthly Patient Roster Verification process should be conducted monthly by Dialysis Facilities in EQRS between the 1st and 5th of each month.  When the Patient Roster Report is reviewed consistently and correctly, the facility will receive fewer (if any) Patient Cleanup Reports from the Network, and will have better compliance with CMS Data Management Guidelines including timeliness of entering admissions and forms in EQRS to meet these CMS goals: 

  • Admissions entered within 5 business days

  • 2728 Forms submitted within 45 days

  • 2746 Forms submitted within 14 days

Detailed instructions for successfully completing the Monthly EQRS Patient Roster Verification and resolving discrepancies is attached.
