Reporting of Third Quarter Data

To meet the CMS ESRD QIP NHSN reporting requirements for Payment Year 2019, outpatient hemodialysis clinics must submit their third quarter 2017 Dialysis Event data collected from July 1, 2017 through Sept. 30, 2017, by Wednesday, Jan. 31, 2018. New or revised third quarter data entered into NHSN after January 31 will not be sent to CMS.

Therefore, please be aware that any changes or corrections to third quarter 2017 data should be made prior to the reporting deadline.

We recommend using the following resources to review your data before the deadline.  These resources and others can be found on the Dialysis Event homepage:

Contact the NHSN Helpdesk (, subject line ‘Dialysis’) with any questions.
