The Registration Process
Modified on: Thu, 4 Jan, 2018 at 11:08 AM
Every facility contributing data to the NRDR must be registered. For registration 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 register as a separate NRDR facility.
Note: Radiology groups can register and submit data to NRDR. The radiology group does not have to be the owner of a facility to take part.
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 before you start.
Register in NRDR. First, register a master facility, even if you have only one facility. Then register each imaging site as a “child” facility to the master. The Master-Child hierarchy makes it much easier to add additional facilities in the future, if needed, and helps reduce registration fees by consolidating billing.
Note: If you have previously submitted a Participation Agreement but you need to update it in order to enroll in another registry, use the Participation Agreement Addendum to denote which registries you are adding.
Get ready to start submitting data. If you are participating in DIR or IR, you will receive instructions on how to install TRIAD 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.
You will not be able to submit data until we have a signed Participation Agreement on file.
Submit payment for the electronic invoice you’ll receive when you register. Consult Registration and Participation Fees for details on the fee schedule. You may pay for registration fees either by credit card or by check.
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 e-mail will not be sent.
Please contact the NRDR Help Desk if you have any questions or need assistance.
