The KCER Summit, held annually in conjunction with the 2016 Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Quality Conference, brings together stakeholders in the end stage renal disease (ESRD) emergency preparedness community, including CMS, ESRD Networks, providers, large dialysis organization (LDO) corporate leadership, patients, emergency management personnel, hospitals, departments of health (DOHs), utility companies, and transportation companies.
