Wednesday, June 22, 2016, 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. ET.

In this webinar, CMS will provide an overview of the updated methodology for calculating Dialysis Facility Compare star ratings. CMS subject matter experts will discuss the addition of the Pediatric PD Kt/V measure and the National Healthcare Safety Network Standardized Bloodstream Infection Ratio. CMS will also review the addition of information from patient experience surveys, such as the In-Center Hemodialysis Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (ICH-CAHPS) Survey, to supplement existing quality information reported on Dialysis Facility Compare.

Attendees are invited to share initial comments or questions during the question and answer period via phone by entering their audio pin and using the hand-raising icon to enable CMS to unmute their lines, they may also use the chat feature. A CMS representative will respond in the order questions are received.
