An automated system of records that contains records primarily of current Medicare-eligible ESRD patients, but also maintains historical information on people no longer classified as ESRD patients because of death or successful transplantation or recovery of renal function. The PMMIS contains medical information on patients and the services that they received during the course of their therapy. In addition, it contains information on ESRD facilities and facility payment. Beginning January 1, 1995, the PMMIS collects information on all dialysis and kidney transplant patients.
