Kidney Care Partners Launches Initiative to Develop Quality Performance Measures for Dialysis Providers

On July 6, 2021, the Kidney Care Partners (KCP) – a coalition representing patient advocates, health professional organizations (including the American Nephrology Nurses Association [ANNA]), dialysis providers, researchers, and manufacturers – announced plans to relaunch the Kidney Care Quality Alliance (KCQA) to develop measures to evaluate facility-level quality performance measures, particularly in the areas of home dialysis and transplant, for dialysis providers.

A Steering Committee of national kidney community leaders was elected to guide the initiative. Donna Bednarski, MSN, RN, ANP-BC, CNN, CNP, will represent ANNA on the Steering Committee. The group expects to submit the newly developed measures to the National Quality Forum for endorsement by 2022.
