Patient Engagement

Patient and family engagement continues to be an important focus for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ (CMS) and therefore is a large part of the work required of the ESRD Networks.  CMS’ definition of patient and family engagement involves “the perspectives of patients and families directly into the planning, delivery and evaluation of healthcare, thereby improving the quality and safety of the care provided.” The Network has developed resources for facilities to engage patients beyond “direct patient care” and to incorporate the “patient voice” in quality improvement at the facility level.
