Dialysis Facility Reports & Care Compare
Dialysis Facility Reports
The Dialysis Facility Reports (DFR) have been produced annually since 1995 under contract to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. An individual DFR is provided to each dialysis facility in the U.S. in the interest of stimulating quality improvement efforts and facilitating the quality improvement process. The DFRs allow comparisons of the characteristics of a particular facility’s patients, patterns of treatment and transplantation, hospitalization, and mortality to local and national averages.
Quarterly Dialysis Facility Reports provide facilities with advance notice of new and updated quality measures that will be publicly reported on the Care Compare website. These measures are updated quarterly in January, April, July, and October.
These reports can be accessed on the DialysisData.org website.
