If this is your first time applying to the NRDR, you’ll need to create a corporate account and then create a facility account for each site that will contribute data. The corporate account is an “umbrella” account for handling all administrative tasks including legal agreements, billing, and communications for one or more physical facilities. Even participants with only one physical location must have a corporate account.
For application purposes, a "facility" is a physical location where a patient receives an imaging exam, including hospitals, outpatient clinics, free-standing centers, academic sites and other locations where imaging exams are performed. Therefore, if a practice or organization has multiple sites that will contribute data, then each site must have a separate NRDR facility account.
Note: Radiology groups can register and submit data to the NRDR. The radiology group does not have to be the owner of a facility to take part.
See NRDR Accounts and Profiles for details on the corporate account and facility hierarchy.
Here's what you'll need to do to get started:
Gather your information together before starting the process. Refer to Items You'll Need to Register to make sure you have everything you need before you start filling out an application.
Register in NRDR. First, create your corporate account, even if you have only one facility. This step creates login credentials for your Corporate Account Administrator.
Next, create an account for each imaging site. This step creates a unique facility ID for each site and allows you to select the registries in which the site will participate.
Add records for the Scanners (CTC only), Physician Groups, Physician Group TINs, and Physicians dictionaries. Although each of these is optional you may want to enter data now to save time and make sure your facility is ready to submit data.
Review, sign and submit the NRDR Participation Agreement and Business Associate Agreement.
Enter discount coupons, if applicable
Review your projected fees, choose a fee option (if applicable), and review your invoice and draft registration report.
Once you have registered a facility you may add other people as Facility Administrators, Registry Administrators and Facility Users for each facility ID, if desired.
After you have completed your application and submitted payment you can get ready to start submitting data. If you are participating in the DIR or the IR registry, you will receive instructions on how to install TRIADTM at your facility after you have completed your registration, or you can consult with your third-party vendor to see if they can submit data on your behalf. See Submitting Data for more information on the specific methods available for each registry.
Note: You will not be able to submit data until we have a signed BAA on file and have received payment.
You will receive an e-mail confirmation once you have completed the entire registration process for a facility. The confirmation contains information pertinent to logging in to the NRDR website. If the registration is not complete the confirmation email will not be sent.
Please contact the NRDR Help Desk if you have any questions or need assistance.
