VIEWS: 14 PAGES: 2

									Preliminary data from the 2004 Clinical Performance Measures (CPM) Project is displayed below. The graphs compare
Network 5’s performance to other Networks and the US average on 9 measures. (Please note that data for the 2004
CPM Project came from the 4th quarter of 2003.) We anticipate the final report will be released sometime in April 2005.

As of December 2004, with 96% of facilities reporting, 31.6% of Network 5’s prevalent HD patients dialyzed by fistula.
This is a milestone since 31.6% is the CMS required target for Network 5! Although some celebration is in order, please
note that this rate is nearly 9 points below the K-DOQI recommendation, and is next to the lowest rate among all 18
Networks. So let us celebrate reaching this first milestone while we continue to work toward further improvements. If
you want to increase A-V fistulas in your facility, please contact the Network office or vist the following websites:

                             March 6-12, 2005, is Patient Safety Awareness Week. This is a national education and
                             awareness-building campaign to improve patient safety at the local level. This year’s theme
                             is “Focus on Patient Safety: Ask, Listen, & Learn – Effective Communication: The Patient
                             Safety Tool of Choice.” This announcement is from the National Patient Safety Foundation,
