The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) have enabled Organizations to sign up for the Electronic Data Submission Modernization (EDSM) Application Programming Interface (API), which will allow Organizations to electronically submit ESRD data to the End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) Quality Reporting System (EQRS). 

Users with the Facility Batch Role credentials will see the Request EDSM API Access button at the top of the page in the EQRS header bar. Additionally, there is a button on the left menu under Manage Access titled EDSM API. Both buttons will take users to the new self-service onboarding area, where they can request access to electronically transmit data directly to EQRS. 

For more information on onboarding or maintaining an existing integration with the EDSM API, download the documents linked on the EDSM API page within EQRS.

If you have any further questions, please contact: eqrssupport@cms.hhs.gov.
