Renal Healthcare HIE for EQRS

The Renal Healthcare HIE for EQRS is a cutting-edge routing hub that receives required EQRS data from dialysis providers and securely transmits it electronically to CMS for the ESRD program. This system also serves as the conduit for automated feedback from CMS regarding the status of submissions. Importantly, the Renal Healthcare HIE for EQRS does not store or aggregate any data.

This seamless submission allows dialysis facilities with EMRs to submit data electronically rather than manually keying it in. This means:

  • Faster data entry for EQRS
  • Less staff time spent on reporting
  • More accurate electronic data submission
  • Secure, encrypted transmission that meets HIPAA and privacy rules
  • Automated updates from CMS on data submission status
  • Cost savings by not having to build and maintain a system for your facility
