Committees

A brief summary of the IPRO ESRD Network of New England Committees and Advisory Boards:

IPRO ESRD Divisional Board
The ESRD Divisional Board is responsible for oversight and management of the day-to-day operations of the IPRO ESRD Network of New England, the IPRO ESRD Network of New York and any other ESRD Networks that may be operated by IPRO.

Network Council
The Network Council is a subcommittee of the IPRO Board of Directors. It serves as a liaison between the Network and the provider members of the renal community. The Council provides input into the activities of the Network and oversees, analyzes and advises the Board on policies and procedures for the ESRD Network Program.

Medical Review Board
The Medical Review Board (MRB) is an advisory panel to the Network Council on the quality and appropriateness of care delivered to ESRD patients. The MRB also advises on quality improvement activities, including analysis of local data such as clinical performance measures, and develops, implements, and evaluates Network quality improvement projects.

Patient Advisory Committee
The Patient Advisory Committee (PAC) assists in identifying and addressing barriers to obtaining quality health care from the perspective of ESRD beneficiaries. The PAC supports Network activities by assisting with the development of educational materials for patients and providing feedback on the effectiveness of beneficiary-related activities. It also assists in outreach to other beneficiaries and care partners to obtain their perspective.

Grievance Committee
The Network Grievance Committee is an advisory panel to the Network Council consisting of nephrology physicians, nurses, social workers and patient/consumer representatives. The committee investigates and resolves patient grievances in accordance with CMS procedures and Network policies.
