On November 9, 2020, Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) will incorporate the roles and functionality of its legacy CROWNWeb system into the End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) Quality Reporting System (EQRS). The URL to access the program remains the same. Software will be unavailable for use during the upgrade from Nov. 5, 2020 7 p.m. CT – Nov. 9, 2020 6 a.m. CT.
What This Means for Facilities
This rollout will introduce new steps users must follow to submit facilities’ administrative and patients’ treatment-related data directly to CMS. Learn more at mycrownweb.org.
CROWNWeb is a software program designed and implemented by CMS to function as the National ESRD Registry – the centralized database that tracks all Medicare ESRD patients. All Medicare ESRD facilities must enter ESRD patient care information into CROWNWeb either manually or through electronic interfaces.
Qsource ESRD Network 10 is a resource for facilities when they have questions about how to perform tasks in CROWNWeb, or need assistance in correcting CROWNWeb data elements. CMS also tasks the Network to provide oversight monitoring of ESRD facility CROWNWeb data compliance rates. Qsource ESRD Network 10 works directly with facility staff to increase their CROWNWeb data completeness performance rates.
