A transplant center's EQRS user with the Transplant Editor Role can perform the following activities in EQRS, without Network intervention!

If you need to Admit a patient into your Transplant Center:
- Click on Patients (top banner)

- Search for the patient to make sure they are not currently admitted into your facility

- Admit Patient using one of 2 admit reasons:

   - Use NEW ESRD if patient has never received any ESRD Treatment (dialysis nor transplant) in the United State 

  • If you see an ERROR when admitting as 'New ESRD' try 'Transplant' admit reason instead
  • Then change to 'New ESRD':
    • Click on the Admit Date for your center
    • Click Edit
    • Select New ESRD as the Admit Reason
    • Click Save/Submit.

   - Use TRANSPLANT if patient DID previously receive dialysis or transplant treatment IN the United States

- Admit Date should be the date of transplant surgery (NOT the hospital admission)

- Enter ALL required information including SSN and MBI if available, update patient address, race, ethnicity, as needed.

- Enter Treatment (donor type), Functioning Status, and nephrologist 

    - Let the Network know if correct nephrologist is not listed, we will add for you

- Save/Submit
