Facilities Involved in QIA


Improve hypercalcemia rates to positively impact QIP scores.

Project Background

IPRO ESRD Network Programs are implementing CMS designated activities to decrease rates of hypercalcemia at the facility level. Facilities will be provided with root cause analysis (RCA) templates that the Network will review with the project team to develop a Plan Do Study Act (PDSA) Plan for improving rates of hypercalcemia. The project will be conducted beginning in March of 2017, and will end when the facility reaches either a 25% relative improvement in rates of hypercalcemia or when the facility exceeds the QIP threshold for this QIP measure.
