ESKD Quality Metrics Dashboard

The ESKD Quality Metrics Dashboard is available by selecting Analytics from the Home page or menu.  The dashboard, available for physicians, NPPs, and practice users with Practice Super User access, includes guidelines and best practices descriptions for highlighted metrics and achieving improved outcomes.

The dashboard will include data for a physician’s ESKD (End Stage Kidney Disease) patients attributed to DaVita over 18 years old.   The AKI (Acute Kidney Care) patients are omitted.  Patients will be attributed to physicians using the DQI (DaVita Quality Index) methodology.  The only difference from the OneView attribution methodology is when the patient has no primary physician assigned in CWOW or Snappy.  The patient is attributed to the physician who signed the last order in this case.

Two views are available: "My Patients” and “My Practice.”  Both views have the same functionality and metrics.  The difference between the two views is “My Practice” contains patient population data metrics for all the physicians within a given practice, and “My Patients” displays the patients for who they are the primary nephrologists.  All physicians will have the “My Patient” view, but only those with the practice association setup in OneView > Settings> Practice will have the “My Practice” view. Practice Super Users have the “My Practice” view only.

NPPs can use the dashboard to review quality metrics for their collaborating physician’s patient population. The dashboard will default to the first physician listed in alphabetical order. The NPP must select the physician from the dropdown to select another physician. NPPs will have access to the same My Patients view as the selected physician.

The metrics will appear in different sections along with their associated metrics on the dashboard.  The sections are Missed Treatment/No Show, CVC Patients,  Home Patients, Transplant Waitlist, and Patient Hospitalization Rate.  Data will only display if a physician has more than five attributed patients in a metric’s denominator.  The data is taken as a snapshot in time and will not be updated if something changes, e.g., if a patient’s primary nephrologist changes or practice association is completed.  However, the practice data will be visible after the next update, which occurs mid-month.  The date the data was last updated appears at the top of the dashboard.

The metrics are measured monthly, and the graph shows data up to the previous six months. The most recent month’s metrics and the data date range are located in the shaded header above the graph.

The graph's blue bar designates the physician’s patient population metric.  The spark lines allow a physician to compare their performance to the performance of all of the physicians in their DaVita division.  The red spark line shows the bottom 20%, light green shows the top 20%, and dark green shows the top 5% of their division.

Hover your cursor over the blue bar or any data point to obtain the month and percentage.

For the Transplant Waitlist, the graph displays the most recent month of data for the six status summary categories.  The categories are Waitlisted, Actively Referred, Interested & Not Referred, Not Interested, Delisted/Denied, and Data Not Available.  In addition, underneath the graph, up to six months of prior waitlist monthly performance are listed.

“N/A” and “No Data Available” message appears when there is not enough data to calculate the metric at that time.

To view that metric’s best practices and definitions, click the “Best Practices” link at the top right of the section.  A separate window will open that contains additional resources and information about the metric.

Click the “Download Patient List” to generate a patient list PDF.

Once the Patient List is generated, a message that contains an “Open PDF” link will appear. To close the message, click the “X” in the top right-hand corner of the message.

Click the “Open PDF” link, and a separate browser will open. View, download, or print the Patient List once opened.
