Network 7 Goals

To assist the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) in meeting Agency goals and in keeping with sound medical practice, the strategic goals of the End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) Network Program are to improve:

  • The quality and safety of dialysis related services provided for individuals with ESRD
  • The independence, quality of life, and rehabilitation (to the extent possible) of individuals with ESRD through transplantation, use of self-care modalities (e.g., peritoneal dialysis, home hemodialysis), in-center self-care, as medically appropriate, through the end of life
  • Patient perception of care and experience of care, and resolve patient's complaints and grievances
  • Collaboration with providers to ensure achievement of the goals through the most efficient and effective means possible, with recognition of the differences among providers (e.g., independent, hospital-based, member of a group, affiliate of an organization, etc.) and the associated possibilities/capabilities
  • The collection, reliability, timeliness, and use of data to measure processes of care and outcomes; maintain Patient Registry; and to support the ESRD Network Program

About the ESRD Network Program

Under the direction of CMS, the ESRD Network Program consists of a national network of 18 ESRD Networks, responsible for each U.S. state, territory, and the District of Columbia. ESRD Networks service geographic areas based on the number and concentration of ESRD beneficiaries.
