PI23 Features that impact the EDIs
Content for Public Portal is a proof of concept that the new Content Management System can be used to host the content, training, updates, news from MyCROWNWeb site. The moving of content will take place in a future PI and there will be notification/communication about the move way in advance. Other types of helpful content will also be identified.
Modernize and improve the process by which dialysis facilities, transplant centers, LDOs and networks share vital information in an emergency scenario in order to support the ability of CMS, Kidney Community Emergency Response (KCER), and the Networks to respond and support dialysis facilities and patients.
Create a new modernized electronic process for collecting emergency situational status information that can be utilized not only by networks and LDO's but can also be submitted directly by individual facilities. Collect additional information from affected entities when appropriate to aid in the emergency response and provide an aggregated report of the information collected that gives KCER, the networks and CMS a clear understanding of the situation on the ground without any need to copy and paste information from one place to another or to look for it in multiple places.
Consolidate overlapping roles across Portal and QIP within EQRS. All roles necessary for appropriate UI access must exist in HARP/EQRS. Individual facility users, LDO's, CMS and its representatives need to have appropriate access to EQRS to have the ability of viewing data and reports, as well as have the ability to submit, review and finalize inquiries.
Improve documentation of the referral process between dialysis facilities and transplant centers to enhance response and prevent gaps in patient waitlist process for a transplant. Provides documentation and tracking of dialysis referral to a transplant center and the transplant centers' response as to if the patient was accepted to the transplant program or not along with the reasons for rejection and any testing necessary following acceptance.
This enabler will provide a Gap Analysis of what legacy systems used for data updates and discrepancy and how previous Notifications and Alerts modules in CW and REMIS provided reconciliation. This feature will also research and provide CMS recommendations on what possible changes between those systems and EQRS can use, or if there are other opportunities to get "notification-like" data on specific patient identity fields and other information that was previously used by the ESRD community.
Research the CROWNWeb Notifications and REMIS alerts to determine the data quality points that can be used for EQRS, what is no longer viable with one system, and where EQRS can utilize source of truth systems like EDB and UNOS to update data points automatically for ESRD patients.
This feature will correct the ESRD Patient Registry Accretions process for CMS, ESRD Networks, and ESRD Facilities by correcting and enhancing the ability to properly map inbound ESRD and UNOS Accretions to the queue of the correct facility or network in EQRS vs. CMS. This will allow them to be reviewed and processed in the action list and worked by the appropriate people in a more efficient and timely manner.
CMS will have the ADO create and implement facility crosswalk capabilities to map Hospital CCNs (xx00xx) to EQRS Transplant Facility CCNs (xx98xx) to correctly route accretions received from UNOS, EDB, and claims to the correct facility or network queue and reduce the number of accretions that are only visible in the CMS queue. An additional goal is to assist CMS in identifying a strategy for clean-up of the current CMS queue and provide suggestions and recommendations for ongoing management of the national CMS queue for accretions.
