The Dialysis Facility Reports (DFRs) are created under contract to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to provide dialysis facilities, consumers, the public, CMS and its affiliates with valuable information on patient characteristics, treatment patterns, hospitalization, mortality, and transplantation patterns in Medicare certified dialysis facilities. The DFR Data files available for download here include the data elements contained in the each Medicare certified dialysis facility’s DFR for the year indicated, subject to dialysis facility exclusion for small numbers of patients based on the end of the year count in the Annual Facility Survey. If this patient count is less than or equal to 10 in the most recent year of the reporting period, we do not include the facility in the data file.
The FY2018 Dialysis Faciltiy Report Data (and all past archives) are now available for download here: https://data.cms.gov/dialysis-facility-reports. Archived files will remain on DialyisData.org until 9/30/2018.
