CMS requires facilities to report ALL "ESRD" patients in EQRS who treat in a U.S. dialysis facility or transplant center.

  • If this is the patient's first time receiving treatment in the U.S. --> admit as New ESRD.
  • If patient has treated in the U.S. previously --> admit as: 
    • Transfer In (if returning from another country) 
    • or Restart (if patient Discontinued or Recovered Function before returning to another country).
  • Enter Treatment information.
  • Submit the 2728 Form as you would for any ESRD patient.
