The End Stage Rena Disease (ESRD) Quality Incentive Program (QIP) promotes high quality, transparent, cost-efficient care in outpatient dialysis facilities by establishing performance standards that are linked to payment.

The development of a subject matter expert and the sharing of ESRD QIP knowledge resulted in buy-in from dialysis staff and physicians leading to a higher total performance score and the avoidance of payment reduction.
